Consular Processing - How to do it?

Recommended Posts

My friend needs your help in filing Green card thru Consular Processing, thanks in advance.

Chronology of events:

1. Came to USA on H1b in 2006, and Perm/i140 were approved in 2008. 
2. In 2009 during recession the H1b renewal was denied (reason: Not on a Project), then moved to India. 
3. In 2018 employer filed 824 (for amending i140 for CP??), and it is approved.
4. Will apply to Consulate in India for consular processing.
5. The Priority date is current.
6. Employer will provide the necessary documentation, if any. 

He can't afford the attorney fee for filing the final application(s) for entire family, so want to apply on his own.  

1. Which forms have to be filled for final application? -- need names of the forms. 

2. Does the denial of H1b renewal cause any problem in the final process?

He will get a letter asking him to make an appointment for fingerprints and then the Interview. The letter will mention documents needed. Most important is a current job letter.

what about consular processing for physician in under served area NIW 1 -140 approved folks who finished 5 years of work in under served area ? but still waiting in the never ending Indian line for GC.

Can such a physician move to India and apply to be self employed once priority date is current?
