Why Hire an Attorney for Immigration?

Do I Really Need a Lawyer or Can I Just Fill Out the Forms Myself?

The United States Citizenship & Immigration Service reports that 67% of all applications and petitions filed without legal counsel are DENIED. Why does this happen? It happens because immigration law is one of the most complex areas of law in the United States. Here is what our courts have said about the complexity:

"The statutory scheme defining and delimiting the rights of aliens is exceedingly complex. Courts and commentators have stated that the Immigration and Nationality Act resembles 'King Mino's labyrinth in ancient Crete,' and is 'second only to the Internal Revenue Code in complexity.'" Chan v. Reno, 1997 U.S. Dist. Lexis 3016, *5 (S.D.N.Y. 1997).

Preparing your immigration case involves much more than completing the proper forms. Our experienced immigration attorneys review the specific facts of your case, determine the appropriate legal remedies, determine potential pitfalls or liabilities associated with the application, and guide your case through the appropriate federal agencies. Much of the attorneys work is associated with anticipating legal issues, solving legal and pragmatic problems, avoiding delay, and resolving legal complications.

When you hire an immigration lawyer, you benefit from the years of experience, legal training, continuing education, and personal and professional relationships of that attorney with the government officers. Chances are good that the people, plans, and future opportunities that are depending on the outcome of your immigration case deserve good legal representation. Limiting yourself to odds of success of "one in three" is not acceptable.

The U.S. Immigration Process Is Complex

Immigration law can be incredibly complicated without the assistance of a knowledgeable attorney. Over the last few years, immigration law has become very strict. This overly protective attitude can be especially frustrating for individuals wanting to gain access to the United States and the advantages that come with being a citizen of this country.

Legal immigration into the United States requires an immense amount of dedication and focus. Though with so many laws, processes, and paperwork standing in the way, it can often be difficult to understand what exactly where and what you should focus on. An immigration attorney can help you through the immigration process by minimizing the confusion and cutting through red tape and excessive paperwork.

The United States controls and regulates the amount of people flowing into this country through a number of classifications and procedures to determine an individual's eligibility for certain privileges. In order to accomplish this goal, visas exist to provide individuals with the specific rights and privileges he or she needs for the time he or she will spend here.

There are a number of different types of visas for certain situations. These visas can be either non-immigrant visas or immigrant visas depending on whether an individual desires to stay in this country after relocating. Each visa requires its own set of qualifications and requirements. A skilled and knowledgeable attorney will be able to successfully guide you through the application process so that you will get the specific visa you need to live in this country.
