Consular Processing Lawyer

Immigrants seeking permanent residence in the United States must apply for a green card.

If you have any specific questions about consular processing, we are available to help.

What to Know About Consular Processing and Immigration

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) explains that consular processing is the method that must be used to apply for a green card if the applicant, who has already been approved for an immigration petition, is currently located outside the bounds of the United States. The U.S. Department of State consulate abroad administers the process, which is how it gets its name. Here is an overview of the basic stages of consular processing: 

  • You must determine your basis to apply for a green card; 
  • You must file the proper immigration petition; 
  • You must wait for a decision on your application; 
  • You must wait for a notice from the National Visa Center; 
  • You will be asked to attend an appointment at the consulate; and
  • If successful, your visa will be granted, and you will receive a green card. 

Every immigration issue is different. There are a lot of different complicated things that can arise during consular processing. For example, missing or incorrect documents can lead to lengthy delays in processing. An experienced immigration attorney can help you submit a complete and thorough application and work to find solutions to any issues that may arise.
