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.
