How do I obtain a green card from outside of the United States?
New Jersey Consular Processing Lawyers
If you are not currently residing in the United States, or happen to be in the country illegally, you will need to apply for legal permanent residency through the United States Embassy or Consulate within your home country. When the visa petition is filled out by either your employer or relative who is is a United States citizen and approved by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) the petition will be sent to the US National Visa Center. When the priority date gets close, the US National Visa Center will ask for the filing fees and to submit the rest of the paperwork for the immigrant visa interview. Once this is complete, the US National Visa Center will send your paperwork to the US Embassy or Consulate in your home country. They will they schedule you and your family for the interview.
Once the immigrant visa and any waivers that may be needed are approved, you and your family can then travel into the United States. You then can look at working towards achieving legal permanent residence in the country.
