- I-485 (Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status): This form is used by a person who is in the United States in legal status (such as F-1, B1/B2, H-1B, E-2, etc.) to adjust to permanent resident status or register for permanent residence. Filing fee: $1,140. An additional biometrics service fee of $85 is required for applicants ages 14 to 78.
- I-829 (Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status): This form is for immigrant entrepreneurs to petition to remove the conditions on their permanent resident status.
