An important aspect of non-immigrant visas has to do with the consular processing.  Non-immigrant
visas have to be approved at consular or embassy offices outside the US.   It usually takes a shorter
period of time for an application to go through if is done through a consular office.  Furthermore,
attorneys might not be allowed to be at the interview depending on the particular policy of the consular
office.  If you are in the US, however, you might be able to apply for adjustment of status in the US
rather going through consular processing.  A disadvantage of consular processing is that a denial at the
interview could bar you from coming to the US.  A denial of adjustment of status done in the United
States gives your better appeals options. You need to speak to a skilled and knowleagble immigration
attorney to better explore your options.
