Adjustment of Status

The process of obtaining lawful permanent resident status in the United States without having to leave the United States to do so.  Generally, this option is unavailable to many persons who entered the United States without inspection.  This should be distinguished from “Change of Status” which is generally used when changing from one nonimmigrant status to another.
