CONSULAR PROCESS

Consular Processing is the procedure for bringing eligible family members to the US.  The Department of Homeland Security only recognizes the spouse, minor children and parents of a US citizen as "immediate relatives".  A citizen's adult son / daughter / sibling is outside the immediate family circle and must apply for a visa under the family preference system and wait until a visa becomes available. There is no visa category for an uncle, niece, cousin or grandparent.  

A permanent resident's "immediate relatives" are only his spouse and minor children.  The adult son / daughter of a resident must apply for a visa under the family preference schedule and wait until a visa becomes available.  There is no visa category for the parents of a resident.  

The goal of the Burchinow Immigration Law Firm is to keep families together.  We are proud to say that 100% of our consular processing cases have been approved.
