Hello. It is possible to adjust status in a circumstance as you describe. Do contact a knowledgeable private attorney who will be happy to help you. You may phone my law firm on Saturdays and Sundays, as well as weekdays. Immigration and Visa law is federal law, so any knowledgeable licensed attorney may assist you. This website provides general information and general principles of law and does not provide private legal advice. Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will confer initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best.

Yes, the Canadian spouse is able to adjust the status without leaving the US and receive the Green Card here. I would be glad to help. The process takes 3-5 months, and the Canadian is able to receive Emplyment Authorization and a Social Security card while waiting. How long have you been married?
