Living abroad, even for a specified period, has far-reaching ripples that must get addressed. For instance, your tax status likely changed due to how and where you earn your pay.

Consular Process

Consular Process deals with those seeking U.S. citizenship. Although an immigrant will need help with Consular Processing as part of obtaining their green card, current American citizens may require it as well.

You may not need to return home to complete documentation. When you need expert assistance with your Consular Process requirements, just give our office a call!

CRBA (Consular Report of Birth Abroad)

If you have United States citizen status and you give birth abroad, you must inform the proper department. That is especially true if the child was not born on “U.S. Soil” like an international army base.

Visa Denials

Few things are terrifying as getting denied your visa. Unfortunately, there are many reasons why you might not get approval.

Whether you lost identification, or you didn’t complete documents correctly, there are lots of reasons why you may get denied. Don’t get rejected from your visa, and let us help get you home!


Sometimes, you need to obtain a passport while you’re in Colombia. Whether it was lost or stolen or you just need to apply, it helps to have your best law team fighting for you.
