Immigration made easy

“Impossible” Adjustment of Status case solved with Legal Legends

Case Results


A Vietnamese woman married to an American man successfully applied for a marriage-based green card with the help of Legal Legends to adjust her status.


Our client, a Vietnamese citizen, initially entered the US on a tourist visa to visit her American fiancé. After spending some time in the country and getting married, she and her husband decided she should stay and adjust her status to a Permanent Resident.

As her husband was living and working in the US, they wanted to avoid the long separation and paperwork process they would encounter if she returned to Vietnam to complete the immigration process.

As her tourist visa would soon expire, the couple urgently needed to find an immigration attorney who specialized in adjustment of status and understood the complexities of marriage-based green card applications for Vietnamese nationals.


The husband contacted Legal Legends in search of an attorney well-versed in these types of immigration processes. Upon reviewing their case, our attorney guided the couple through each step of the adjustment of status process, including:

  • Gathering all necessary documentation
  • Preparing and submitting the I-130 Petition for Alien Relative
  • Preparing and submitting the I-485 Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status
  • Preparation for the Adjustment of Status Interview

Our Legal Legends’ attorney ensured that all paperwork was completed carefully and submitted before the wife’s tourist visa expired, to avoid potential legal complications. They navigated through language barriers and prepared the couple for the Adjustment of Status interview at the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office.
