Consular Processing


Helping Families Transition with Ease

While similar to an adjustment of status, consular processing is for individuals who are currently outside of the United States looking to gain lawful permanent resident status, commonly referred to as a Green Card. The family members allowed to be brought over must be children of the U.S. citizen who are under the age of 21, spouses, or parents. At Sverdloff Law Group, our experienced Chicago immigration law attorney Julia Sverdloff can help answer your consular processing questions.

Who Gets to Qualify for Consular Processing

Requirements for family members being petitioned to enter the United States include:

  • Spouse, parent, or child (under 21) of the U.S. citizen
  • Family members who have never been unlawfully present in the U.S.
  • Family members who have no (or very minor) criminal histories in their home country

In addition, the U.S. citizen must not have any criminal history involving sex crimes. While ideally all of these stipulations should be met, there are some exceptions. If you or your family members don’t quite meet all of the requirements, be sure to consult with an immigration attorney to go over all of your options.

We Provide the Important Information

Consular processing allows you and your immediate family members to live in the United States together. Once approved, family members will immediately become lawful permanent residents as green card holders. We’re proud to support you and your family as you chase the American Dream.
