Consular Processing

If you are an immigrant living in Redlands, permanent residence green cards are obtained in two ways: either at an adjustment of status interview at the San Bernardino USCIS district office or by the issuance of an immigrant visa at a United States consulate abroad.

Normally, staying near home and being interviewed at a local office is the preferred options. But for some immigrants, adjustment of status is not possible. They must seek their green cards through consular processing. In most cases, your interview will take place at the U.S. consulate in your home country.

If you are thinking about taking the consular processing route, you should not pursue it blindly. Before you leave the U.S., it is in your best interest to consult with an immigration lawyer. You do not want to find out, at your interview, that you do not qualify, and that you may not be allowed to return to the United States.

This can happen if you have lived in the U.S. a long time without legal documents or you have committed certain crimes.

In some situations, you can overcome these problems by winning an I-601 waiver. This waiver is not easy to win. You must prove your family will experience an extreme hardship if you not allowed to immigrate and return to the U.S.
