Answer
Hello Peter:


Upon termination of removal proceedings, you may be eligible to adjust your status before USCIS. Such termination is evidence that you have not been found removable under the original allegations contained in the Notice to Appear.

Unless other issues are raised, you should be able to adjust your status.

Sincerely,
