You can submit your petition for an immigrant visa to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services either by mailing the petition or by submitting it online. An immigrant visa lawyer NYC will be able to assist you in putting together your petition and ensuring that all necessary documentation and evidence has been included. Your petition must be approved by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services before your case is allowed to proceed to the National Visa Center.
As the Petitioner, when you complete Form I-130, be sure to choose only one option in the section indicating that the beneficiary does either (1) intend to apply for adjustment of status inside the U.S., or (2) will pursue the visa processing while abroad. If you want to change your selection (to either adjust status in the U.S. or consular processing abroad), you must contact the USCIS to request this change if the Form I-130 is still pending.
If you wish to change this selection after your Form I-130 has already been approved, you may need to file another form. The form used to make these changes after the initial Form I-130 is approved is called Form I-824, Application for Action on an Approved Application or Petition. If you have any questions regarding the immigrant visa application process, an Immigrant Visa I-130 USCIS Lawyer NYC can help.
