Consular Processing in Salt Lake City
Helping Families Transition with Ease
While the term consular processing sounds vague, it refers to a process that lets U.S. citizens bring family members to the United States. The family members allowed to be brought over must be children of the US citizen who are under the age of 21, spouses, or parents. At Monument Immigration, our experienced Salt Lake City immigration law attorney Mark Naugle can help answer your consular processing questions. We’re also pleased to serve families from our offices in Cottonwood and Las Vegas.
Who Gets to Qualify for Consular Processing?
Requirements for family members being petitioned to enter the United States include:
- Spouse, parent, or child (under 21) of the U.S. citizen
- Family members who have never been unlawfully present in the U.S.
- Family members who have no (or very minor) criminal histories in their home country
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.
We Provide the Important Information
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 usually takes about nine months to review consular processing applications.
The government filing fee for consular processing is $860, and Monument Immigration charges a flat rate of $5,000 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.
