immigration through marriage to Mexican

Post Posted: Wed Jan 14, 2015 12:21 am

I am a US citizen and recently married a Mexican man (he's residing in Mexico and I live in the U.S.). He wants to bring me and my son (from a previous relationship) to reside with him in Mexico. Does he begin the immigration process for us through the INM in Mexico? Or do I need to apply through the Consulate in NYC?? Can't find a clear answer to this...
