Consular Processing For Green Card Status

While many foreign nationals apply for permanent residency status (a “green card”) while in the U.S. on an immigrant visa, this is not the only path available.

With proper legal counsel, it is possible to get through this process relatively quickly.

Our lawyers can help you establish eligibility for permanent residency in the U.S., file your petition and prepare for your appointment at the consular office.
