Consular Processing: Immigration Lawyer in New Jersey
Need help with consular processing?
When citizens of other countries desire to obtain permanent resident status in the United States, they usually have to obtain their immigrant visas at their consulate or United States embassy. Immigrant visas permit the alien to live and work in the United States indefinitely, unlike student, non-immigrant tourist, or specialty worker visas which allow for a stay in the United States for a limited time period. At the Law Offices of Simone Bertollini, I can explain the consular process of immigration and assist those who contact me with the process of applying for immigration benefits prior to leaving their country of origin or residence.
There are 3 types of immigrant visa categories, family based immigration, employment based immigration, and the diversity visa lottery. Citizens of some countries such as India, Mexico or China are not eligible to participate in the diversity visa lottery and must apply for visas in other categories to gain immigrant entry into the United States. The consular processing route requires an immigrant to have an interview at a United States embassy or consulate in their country of origin or residence. If the alien already lives in the United States, and applies for immigration benefits, the petition will require them to choose whether or not they will adjust status in the United States or at a consulate abroad.
