If you are a lawful permanent resident or a U.S. Citizen, and you would like to bring a family member into the U.S. on a permanent basis, you may be able to do so through the so-called consular processing. Generally speaking, the process involves a beneficiary who is outside the U.S., who has to apply for an immigrant visa at a U.S. Consular Post in the home country. There are various steps to the consular process, and, depending on the relationship between the petitioner and the beneficiary, it may be a quick process or one that could last several years.
We are skilled in this area of practice as it affects most of our clients. Let us help you reunite with your family members in the U.S. and guide you through this complicated process.
