Under the present state of the law, a person who is nolonger in lawful nonimmigrantstatus will not be allowed
to le for an application for adjustment of status here in
the United States even if animmigrant petition has beenapproved for that person and his priority date isalready current.There arehowever someexceptions to thisgeneral rule.
The rst ex-
ception is if the
 petition was led
 by a US citizenspouse, child or  parent and that parent is petition-ing for a child below 21 yearsold.The next exception is if the applicant is applying for 
adjustment based on an em- ployment based petition ledwithin 180 days from the date
the applicant fell out of status.The last exception is if the person is covered by Section
245(i) of the Immigrationand Nationality Act. Section245(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) allows
Signicance of Section
245(i) of the INS
 persons who are the ben-
eciaries of immigrant visa petitions or labor certicationapplications led on or beforeJanuary 14, 1998, to le for adjustment of status in the
U.S. despite having fallen outof status or having enteredwithout inspec-tion. A lim-ited extension of 
Section 245(i)
in 2000 covered
of immigrantvisa petitions or 
labor certica-
tion applica-
tions led on or  before April 30,
2001. However 
these benecia-
ries should have been physically present in theUnited States on or beforeDecember 21, 2000 to qualify
for 245(i).
The following illustrationswould best explain one’s eligi-
 bility under 245(i).
Reynaldo entered the
United States as a tourist in
April 2008. Reynaldo wasthe beneciary of an im-migrant petition led by his
US citizen father on Sep-
tember 1, 1995. Reynaldo
decided not to go back tohis home country when he
entered in 2008 so he could
spend more time with his parents. Reynaldo’s prior-ity date will be current inJuly 1 2010. Can Reynaldo
adjust his status in the US?Yes, Reynaldo can adjust
his status since is the
 beneciary of an approved petition led on or beforeJanuary 14, 1998.
Victoria entered the
United States as a tour-
ist on May 5, 2006. No
immigration petitions
have been led for Victo-
ria. Victoria was offeredto work for a care homein Los Angeles. The carehome owner also offered tosponsor her for green card.
The employer led a labor certication application
with the Department of La- bor which was eventually
certied. The immigrant petition led with the US
Citizenship and Immigra-tion Services was likewiseapproved. When Victo-ria’s priority date becomescurrent, can she apply for 
adjustment of status? Vic-toria cannot le for adjust-
ment of status even if his
labor certication applica-
tion and immigrant petitionhave been approved as sheis not covered by Section
Manuel is a seaman
who was petitioned byhis father on December 5,
1997. His father however 
died a year after the peti-
tion was led. On Feb-ruary 14, 2008, Manuel
was on board a cargo shipwhich was passing throughSan Francisco. His shipdocked at the Port of SanFrancisco and Manuel andthe other crew memberswere given shore leave.Manuel called up his rela-tives in San Francisco who picked him up at the port.After being convinced by his relatives, Manueldecided not to return to
his ship and to just stay
in the US. After a year Manuel met Kritika, a UScitizen. The two later hadan amorous relationshipand eventually got mar-
ried. Manuel can adjust
his status through a visa
 petition led by his wife
 because he is covered by
245(i). Had Manuel not been covered by 245(i), hecould not adjust his status
even though he is marriedto a US citizen because heentered the country as acrewman.
Section 245(i) is one of the more signicant legisla-
tions passed and the law hasallowed a substantial number of individuals to get their  permanent residence status.People who are covered by
245(i) must take advantage of 
this law so that they may beable to legalize their stay inthe U.S.
