While the term consular processing sounds vague, it refers to a process that lets US citizens bring family members to the United States. The family members allowed to be brought over must be spouses, parents or children of the US citizen who are under the age of 21.
Requirements for family members being petitioned to enter the United States:
In addition, the US 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 before you give up.
Monument will give you all the information you need so you know exactly what’s required to apply, help you gather your application information, and prepare your submission quickly and accurately.
We can have your consular processing application ready for submission within just 48 business hours after receiving your documentation and information.
We also provide consultations on interview preparedness (for free) to make sure you and your family are completely ready for consular processing.
The government usually takes about 9 months to review consular processing applications.
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.
The government filing fee for consular processing is $860, and Monument charges a flat rate of $3500 for consular processing.
If you choose to pay the entire amount immediately, you’ll receive a 10% discount. If not, we’re more than happy to offer a zero-interest payment plan that fits your budget.
We’re proud to support you and your family as you chase the American Dream, and providing fair, competitively priced legal services is just part of how we achieve that mission.

Mr. Mark Naugle handled all the details from beginning to end and won our immigration case. When Mark said he would get something done he did! All the paperwork were filed promptly and accurately. I highly recommend Mark Naugle as an immigration attorney.
Mark is professional, kind, patient, knows the immigration laws very well and gave us a good strategy as to how we should proceed with our case. He helped my wife through the adjustment to permanent resident status process giving us peace of mind and confidence.
Mark was extremely efficient processing my Deferred Action application. His client portal was simple and easy to use. My application was ready to submit within 2 days of my completing the questionnaire. I would highly recommend Mark and Monument Immigration.
The government allows most documents you submit to be copies, meaning you can easily send your documents by email or fax, or upload them through your client portal. You’re also able to mail or drop off your documents at our office.
However, be prepared to provide original documents to your interview.
Yes! Although there’s no way to expedite the process after we submit it to the government, getting all of the details right on your application makes all the difference.
That means accurately completing your online questionnaire so we can begin preparing your forms ASAP, and sending us your photos, filing fee checks and supporting documents immediately.
Although we offer interview attendance for just $250, we make sure you’re totally prepared beforehand so you’ll feel confident and relaxed on your own.
We accept credit cards, debit cards, cash and checks.
You’re welcome to change attorneys whenever you like, and you’re also entitled to a copy of your file from your last immigration lawyer.
