8 year delay for adjustment of status is not "unreasonable" according to the 8th Circuit

"Given the facts specific to Debba that have caused the delay, and
assuming for purposes of our analysis that there is a judicially-enforceable
“reasonable time” requirement, we conclude the delay in processing Debba’s AOS
application was not unreasonable."

Debba v. Heinauer, Feb. 16, 2010.

  1. Some people will want to seek professional help as soon as they see the mountain of forms, checklist and supporting documents needed. The forms used for adjustment of status based on marriage can also be used for other adjustment applications, hence the confusion and the likelihood to make mistakes. Any mistake in the form can return the case back to you, resulting in delays and even denials.
