Change of Visa Status

When a visitor arrives in the United States in one nonimmigrant (temporary) status, and decides to engage in an activity permitted only under a different status (e.g., a tourist decides to attend school), that individual has two options: (1) visa processing at a U.S. Consulate abroad, or (2) apply for a change of status. A variety of classes of nonimmigrants (temporary visitors) are barred from eligibility for a change of status. The most common bars apply to foreign nationals who are not in lawful status at the time the adjustment application is filed, or who have engaged in unauthorized employment in the United States since their last lawful admission.

The LL.M. Law Group can help the following visitors to the United States with a change of status:

  • Temporary visitors for business or pleasure currently on a B visa
  • Academic students on a F-1 visa and their immediate family members on a F-2 visa
  • Diplomatic and other government officials, and their families and employees on an A visa
  • Representatives to international organizations and their families and employees on a G visa
  • Representatives of foreign media on an I visa and their immediate family members
  • Exchange visitors on a J-1 visa and their immediate family members on a J-2 visa
  • Vocational students on a M-1 visa and their immediate family members on a M-2 visa
  • Temporary workers and their immediate family members on a H, L, O, P, Q or R visa


Please refer to the LL.M. Law Group's immigration consultation procedures to begin.

The LL.M. Law Group will work with you to arrive at an arrangement that is fair to all concerned.
