Consular Process

If you are living outside of the United States and wish to obtain a Green Card, it is crucial to have quality legal services within the country to support you as you pursue your goals.

Consular processing is for individuals who are currently outside of the United States looking to gain lawful permanent resident status, commonly referred to as a Green Card.

Consular processing takes place at a U.S. consulate in your place of birth or current residence (not the U.S.). A petition must be filed based on specific immigration categories such as family, employment, or humanitarian reasons.

The petition is typically filed with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, although there are some circumstances where the petition would be filed at the consulate office.

Consular processing has a much shorter processing time than adjustment of status. Consular processing can take anywhere between 4 to 6 months, whereas adjustment of status can take several years.

Another benefit to consular processing is that there is a low probability that the consular officer will refuse the immigrant a visa.
