Why Do People Opt for Consular Processing?
Foreign nationals in various countries around the globe can apply for nonimmigrant U.S. visas, immigrant visas, or U.S. green cards at U.S. Consulates and Embassies. This is commonly referred to as ‘Consular Processing.’ The main benefit of taking this route for acquiring immigrant/nonimmigrant visas or green cards is that it takes relatively less time to complete.
Individuals who are already residing in the U.S. and want to gain Lawful Permanent Resident status in the country, consular processing is one of the most popular mechanisms for getting the desired adjustment of status. However, you should keep in mind that you cannot appeal a consular processing denial.
Our highly experienced team of immigration lawyers at Maria Jones Law Firms specializes in various facets of United States immigration laws. We are here to help you prepare an accurate and comprehensive application for filing with the U.S. Consulate near you.
How Our Phoenix Consular Processing Attorneys Can Help?
We have frequent contact with U.S. Consulates and Embassies across the world and are familiar with their stringent review standards and procedures. We have helped countless foreign spouses of U.S. citizens reunite with their U.S. spouses and obtain a Green Card to live and work in America.
We take your stress and headache out of the entire petition process for U.S. citizens residing anywhere in America. Our attorneys are admitted to practice immigration law in all 50 states. We have helped scores of men and women in America petition for their fiancées to come to the U.S. to join them on a K-1 non-immigrant fiancée visa. If the couple marries within 90 days of the visa-holder’s arrival in the U.S., then the foreign spouse may stay in the US while applying for lawful Permanent Resident status.

Our Immigration Specialists Also Help You Prepare for the Interview
Not many foreign nationals filing their applications with U.S. Consulates realize the importance of interviews.
The interview happens to be one of the most important parts of consular processing. Yes, it can last just about five to ten minutes. No, you will not be accompanied by your counsel during this interview. Put simply, it’s pretty much a make-or-break scenario.
Therefore, it’s important that you prepare well for this interview. This is exactly what our immigration specialists at MJLF do. No matter where in the world you live, our team will provide you with all necessary guidance to help prepare for the interview. Once you choose our Phoenix consular process attorneys, we make it our business to help you at every step of the way.
Our team will patiently review your application with you. We will also explain any possible challenges involved in your application. Our immigration law specialists will also work to familiarize you with possible questions or topics that may come up during your interview.
Receiving a Green Card through Family-Based Immigration
The following steps must occur if you are to receive a Green Card through family-based immigration:
- A close relative, who is a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident, must file an immigrant petition (Form I-130) on your behalf with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
- The petition must be approved by the USCIS and forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC).
- The NVC collects fees and documentation, and then notifies the petitioner and the foreign beneficiary when a visa number is available.
- Once a visa number is available, a local U.S. Embassy or Consular office will notify the foreign beneficiary to come in for an interview and for final processing.
- If a visa is granted, the Consulate or Embassy will give the foreign beneficiary a sealed Visa Packet to take with them to the U.S.
- Upon arrival in the U.S., the beneficiary will present the unopened Visa Packet to the Customs and Border Protection officer at the Port-of-Entry. If s/he is found admissible, s/he will be allowed to enter the country as a Permanent Resident (Green Card holder).
- A Green Card will then be mailed to the beneficiary within 30 days of entering the country.
- Non-Citizen crewmen who arrived in the U.S. on board an airplane, ship, or vessel
- A foreign national transitioning through the U.S. from one country to another
- An alien admitted legally into the U.S. as a non-immigrant visitor, under the Visa Waiver Program
