Adjustment To Immigrant Status Procedure allowing certain aliens already in the United States to apply for immigrant status. Aliens admitted to the United States in a nonimmigrant, refugee, or parolee category may have their status changed to that of lawful permanent resident if they are eligible to receive an immigrant visa and one is immediately available. In such cases, the alien is counted as an immigrant as of the date of adjustment, even though the alien may have been in the United States for an extended period of time. Beginning in October 1994, section 245(i) of the INA allowed illegal residents who were eligible for immigrant status to remain in the United States and adjust to permanent resident status by applying at a USCIS office and paying an additional penalty fee. Section 245(i) is no longer available unless the alien is the beneficiary of a petition under section 204 of the Act or of an application for a labor certification under section 212(a)(5)(A), filed on or before April 30, 2001. And, if filed after January 1, 1998, the alien must have been present in the United States on December 21, 2000. Prior to October 1994, most illegal residents were required to leave the United States and acquire a visa abroad from the Department of State as they are again now.
Advanced Parole authorized at an USCIS District office in advance of alien’s arrival; may be issued to aliens residing in the United States in other than lawful permanent resident status who have an unexpected need to travel and return, and whose conditions of stay do not otherwise allow for readmission to the United States if they depart.
Advisory Opinion (“j” Visa) Waiver Of Foreign Residence Requirement, Ina 212(e) A J-1 visa /DS 2019 or IAP 66 form will have a statement in the bottom left hand corner of the form, as follows: “Bearer is or is not subject to section 212(e). Two year rule (does or does not) apply (name of country)” This is a preliminary endorsement of the Consular Officer or Immigration Officer regarding Section 212(e) of the INA. When a J-1 visa holder (or his/her attorney) inquires whether the Foreign Residence Requirement under INA 212(e) applies to a particular J-1 visa holder, then a request for an Advisory Opinion request is mailed to the Waiver Review Division at the Department of State.

About 4 percent of children under 18 who were stepchildren or biological children in 2000 were foreign born.21 The corresponding percentage was considerably higher for adopted children—11 percent for boys and 14 percent for girls. The higher percentage for girls was heavily influenced by the number of foreign-born adopted children who were Asian, because the majority of adopted Asian children were girls.
Census Bureau
Of the 1.7 million households with adopted children, about 308,000 (18 percent) contained members of different races. The adoption of foreign-born children by U.S. residents played a large role in creating these households.
Census Bureau
While most foreign-born biological and stepchildren under age 18 (88 percent and 84 percent, respectively) spoke a language other than English at home, this was not the case for foreign-born adopted children. Thirty percent of foreign-born adopted girls and 32 percent of foreign-born adopted boys under 18 spoke a language other than English at home.
