We make immigration possible


245(i) Details

The LIFE Act, which made benefits under INA 245(i) possible, was enacted on  December 21, 2000.  245(i) now makes it possible for certain foreign nationals currently in the US to apply for adjustment of status even if they normally do not qualify because they entered without inspection, fell out of status or otherwise violated the terms of their non immigrant status.  245(i) does not, by itself, allow a person to apply for permanent residence, it only allows some past immigration violations to be forgiven.

For Whom Is 245(i) Appropriate?

Any foreign national in the US who wishes to apply for permanent residence but ordinarily cannot due to past immigration violations.

245(i) Requirements

In order to benefit from 245(i), the applicant must meet the following requirements:

  1. Be physically present in the US on December 21, 2000;
  2. Have an immigration petition or a labor certification application  filed on or before April 30, 2001; and
  3. The immigration petition or the labor certification application must be approvable at the time of filing.
