Adjustment of Status for Asylees

If USCIS granted you asylum status, you are eligible to apply for a green card (permanent residence) 1 year after receiving your grant of asylum. Your spouse and children are also eligible to apply for a green card if they were admitted to the United States as asylees or were included in your grant of asylum. You are not required to apply for a green card; however, it may be in your best interest to do so.
