The documents you need to file an adjustment status application really depends on what the relationship is between you and the beneficiary who you are filing for. For example, for a spouse, obviously we will need a marriage certificate, birth certificate, and proof that the marriage is valid, or that you have a life together, a rent receipt, bank accounts, health insurance, car loans, or birth certificates of your children.
If it’s just a child, all you need is your birth certificate, your child’s birth certificate, and usually the marriage certificate. That’s all you need to file. Filing fees are incredibly expensive. You’re looking at $1,490 for adjustment application, which includes the I-130.
