Skilled Arizona Consular Attorney
Assisting Clients Through Consular Processing
People abroad who seek to live or work in the United States car apply for a temporary or permanent visa (“green card”) at a U.S. consulate in their home country. Known as consular processing, this is a necessary step for many individuals seeking to enter the United States.
Understanding Government Procedures
Consular processing requires joint government agency cooperation. The U.S. State Department, Department of Homeland Security and other government agencies are all involved in this process. We have experience working with these government agencies in immigration matters and we enjoy an in-depth understanding of each agency’s internal processes and procedures.
Arizona hosts many corporations and hospitals that employ foreign nationals. We can help with your employment-based immigration. When a company petitions for you to work in the US, we can fulfill the required documentation necessary to approve your employment.
At that point, the intending immigrant then goes to the U.S. Consulate in their country to pick up the visa.
If you entered the U.S. illegally; marrying a citizen does not provide automatic residence or citizenship. You may have to go back to your country and file for a visa through the U.S. Consulate. In certain situations, you may require family-based consular processing.
We can start the petition process for you and file any necessary or supporting documentation for your visa, including any necessary waivers.
