“Visa Waiver Program Overstays and Adjustment of Status for Immediate Relatives,” the most recent of AILA's Inside Immigration series, cuts through the confusion about immediate relatives, Visa Waiver Program (VWP) overstays, and adjustment of status (AOS).

Author Brent Renison describes the changes following a November 2013 U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) policy memorandum applying Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) §245(c)(4), which specifies an exception to the bar on adjusting status from a VWP entry for immediate relatives, even if the VWP entrant filed for AOS after the 90 days of authorized stay. USCIS retains the ability to refer certain applicants to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and restricts some procedural rights—except, for some applicants, within the Ninth Circuit.
