Immigration status adjustment?
I received a letter in the mail that says that this immigration petition has been approved. I need to know what has to be done next,
Here is the letter what the letter says. .
“The above petition has been approved. The petition indicates that the person for whom you are petitioning is in the United States and will apply for adjustment of status. The information submitted with the petition shows that the person whom you are petitioning for is not eligable to file and adjustment of status application at this time.
Additional info about eligibility for adjustment of status may be obtained from the local USCIS office serving the area where the person for whom you are petitioning lives.
Until the person for whom you are petitioning files an adjustment application or applies for a visa, this petition will be stored in this office. If the person for whom you are petitioning becomes eligible to adjust status based on this petition, he or she should submit a copy of this notice with Form I-485, Application for perminant residence. Form I-485 may be obtained at the local USCIS office.
If the person for whom you are petitioning decides to apply for an immigrant visa outside the US based on this petition, the petitioner should file form I-824,
Whoever you petitioned for is not able to apply for permanent resident status inside the U.S., but he or she is eligible to apply for an immigrant visa outside the U.S. Based upon the approved petition.
The choices are: Stay in the U.S. And not be able to get a green card, or leave the U.S. And apply for a green card visa outside the U.S. Once the immigrant visa is issued, the beneficiary of the petition can return to the U.S. To live. If the person for whom you petitioned decides to leave the U.S. To apply for an immigrant visa, send form I-824 to the NVC.
