TPS recipients who entered US illegally are eligible to adjust status

The Court of Appeals for the Eight Circuit held that a foreign national who entered the U.S. illegally (without inspection and admission) and received Temporary Protected Status (“TPS”), is deemed “inspected and admitted” for purposes of adjustment of status and may adjust their status to that of lawful permanent resident.

How long does the adjustment of status takes in Phoenix?

My clients met online and at the end of the foreign national US visit, they decided they don’t want to be separated any longer and got married.  We filed the petition with the USCIS and an adjustment application last July and the adjustment interview was scheduled for March.   In this case, it took7 months to have the adjustment application approved.  

The USCIS average processing time of the adjustment applications in Phoenix is now 9.5 – 29.5 and it’s been updated regularly.
