Counselor Processing

Tampa Based Counselor Processing Attorney

Also serving clients nationwide in immigration 

What is Counselor Processing?

In cases where legal permanent residents (green card holders) or U.S. citizens want to bring family members over to the United States, the process needs to be handled outside the U.S.

During consular processing, the U.S. sponsor will complete a family-based petition. If it’s approved, it will be sent to the National Visa Center (NVC), then to the consulate and processed.

The affidavit of support is needed in this process, and asserts that the sponsor has some method by which to support their family member without the need for public assistance.

Once your petition is filed, the consulate will perform a criminal background check and review your medical records to ensure that you are in compliance with U.S. vaccination requirements.

Lastly, the beneficiary will need to be interviewed at the consulate. While the interview takes place in English, the beneficiary is allowed to have translators there during the interview.
