Diligent attorney advises and represents potential immigrants seeking consular services
Consulates are offices of the U.S. Department of State located in foreign nations. These offices may be located in other cities than the foreign nation’s capital and provide a number of services for U.S. citizens living abroad, as well as foreign nationals who wish to visit or immigrate to the United States. A consulate may process applications for the following:
- Student visas
- Financial sponsorship
- Marriage and family-related visas
- Tourist visas
- Visa waivers
Regardless of the specific authorization you are seeking, the review process can take a long time, especially you try to go it alone. There are numerous potential reasons for denials, including:
- Necessary information has not been provided
- Application is for the wrong type of visa
- Required payment not provided
- Suspected misrepresentation in application
- Ineligibility due to criminal record or other reason
To avoid unnecessary problems, our firm offers sound advice and assistance with required paperwork. We will help you deal with the State Department bureaucracy in pursuit of your visa, green card or visa waiver.
Assistance following denials issued by U.S. consulates
If the consulate denies your request for a visa, green card or visa waiver, we can help. You do not have the right to appeal, but you may ask for the reason you were denied. When the problem is correctable, we will help you address the issue and refile your application. You might have the right to appeal the denial of a green card in limited circumstances by filing your appeal with the Administrative Appeals Office of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), although you must file quickly. If you have a right to appeal, Mr. Deutsch will pursue the case on your behalf. If you do not, he will do everything reasonably possible to ensure the refiling of your application is successful.
