Ohio Consular Processing Lawyer
Working Toward Permanent Resident Status
Are you hoping to receive a green card? It is important that you take all necessary steps to make sure that your adjustment of status or consular process runs as smoothly as possible. Consular meetings and interviews may take place in the home country of the applicant or within the United States in the case of status change.
Consular Processing Steps
After a notice of action petition has been filed, the National Visa Center receives the application. Next, the foreign immigrant's local U.S. consular will set up a meeting to begin consular processing. When a visa number becomes available, the immigrant will then receive Packet 3 of the immigration packet. This packet must be filled out and returned to the National Visa Center to be processed. Once the processing has been completed, the State Department Visa Office will be notified and the consular office abroad will schedule a meeting for the immigrant in their home country, if necessary.
National Visa Center
The National Visa Center approves your immigration petition and works directly with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services to approve or deny your visa application.
Interview at U.S. Consulate
There are a few different things that you can do to prep for your interview with a U.S. consulate. It is important that you have all necessary travel documents and valid photo identification and that you speak with an attorney regarding your particular situation.
You may be eligible to apply for a Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility if you are deemed not eligible for a visa. This waiver application is submitted to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office.
