Helping Clients Through Consular Processing
All beneficiaries of an immigration petition who are currently abroad must go through consular processing. In the past, consular processing once was the only means of obtaining an immigrant visa. Today, there is also the process of Adjustment of Status (AOS) as an alternative, though this process requires the person to currently be in the United States. There may be some restrictions on those who may file for consular processing or an adjustment of status. You must consult with an experienced attorney before taking any affirmative steps.
Consular processing is complicated and its decisions are generally non-reviewable, rigid, and there may be significant delays due to national security concerns or current foreign policies. In some cases, consular processing may be quicker than the AOS application, "between 5 and 13 months", making it a preferred choice for prospective lawful permanent residents. Having an experienced lawyer is essential to achieve permanent resident status through consular processing.
