Welcome to JustAnswer! I have 34 years experience as an immigration attorney and I am here to help resolve your immigration issue. Tackling these issues can sometimes get confusing. Should you need to chat on the phone or document review, I am able to do that for an additional cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested.

There is o such visa status as a DV1 candidate.

Has the DV lottery winner applied for their adjustment of status and was that approved?

They may have had their lottery selected but that does not mean they have yet qualified to apply for their green card. They have a number assigned to their selection letter and they have to wait until their number is ***** to file for their adjustment of status.

So this is a process. I need to know where they are in the process.

Judith

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
