Adjustment granted after 9 years
Person waited 9 years for adjustment to be granted. She got the runaround. We filed the Writ of Mandate and it was approved for person and her father so they can finally get their Green Cards. Original priority date retained so they can apply for Naturalization years sooner. Upon approval, the applicant is mailed a Form I-551, Permanent Resident Card. Permanent Resident Cards are valid for ten years. If USCIS rejects your application for adjustment of status, you will be mailed a written decision that provides the reason for the denial. Most denials are made without prejudice. This means you can file a new application for permanent residence.
