By the way, do you know what benefit we have with the withholding of removal. If you know or if you want to share experiences, please write to me to It is my understanding that an adjustment is not possible for someone who has been granted a withholding of removal based on a marriage or employment petition. It is one of the disadvantages of the withholding of removal status. An alien can get married with this status but he/she cannot petition for a green card based on this status. Likewise, an alien with the withholding of removal status can work in the USA therefore, employment petition is not required. I am interested to hear from anyone who received adjustment through marriage after receiving the withholding of removal status. Lzfaire
