I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status
After filing the I-485 form, you will also be required to attend a biometrics appointment, which collects an applicant’s fingerprints, photo and signature, so that a security clearance and criminal background check can be conducted. It is important that you contact an experienced Long Island immigration lawyer before attending a biometrics appointment if you have any sort of criminal record. Certain crimes can make an applicant ineligible to receive lawful immigration status or permanent residency, and a lawyer may be able to help you work through this issue.
• Original documents submitted to United States Citizenship and Immigration Services such as birth or marriage certificates
• Employment Authorization Document
• Passport containing non-immigrant visa
