Consular Processing

There are generally two pathways to process your U.S. immigrant visa. If you are outside the United States with an approved immigrant petition, you would need to apply to the U.S. consulate in your home country for a visa to enter the U.S. and be admitted as a permanent resident. If you are already in the U.S., you would get your permanent resident visa through the adjustment of the status pathway. If you are outside the U.S. and are interested in becoming a U.S. permanent resident, or you are filing on behalf of an individual located outside the U.S., Janda Law can help you understand the process and help you through every step. At Janda Law, we understand how complex and challenging consular processing can be and we can help you avoid common mistakes that may delay your application.

Who Qualifies for Consular Processing?

The first step in determining your eligibility for consular processing is to determine your eligibility for a green card or permanent resident visa. Individuals may be eligible through:

  • Family relationship with a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • Employment
  • Asylum
  • Refugee status
  • Status as a victim of crime, abuse, or trafficking
  • Special statuses such as religious workers, international broadcasters, or certain Afghan or Iraq nationals employed by the U.S. government

There are many other categories of eligibility, and an experienced immigration lawyer will determine your eligibility based on your particular circumstances.

The next step is to file the immigrant petition required for the category that fits your circumstances. The immigrant petition is usually filed by the non-U.S. citizen’s sponsor – a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. However, some categories do not require non-U.S. citizens to have an immigrant petition.

Whatever the decision is on your immigrant petition, the experienced immigration lawyers at Janda Law can help you understand the decision and advise you on the next steps.
