Why Should I Hire an Immigration Attorney?
Although you are not required to have an attorney to apply for an immigrant visa or green card, there are several situations where having a seasoned attorney by your side can ease the application process and help ensure successful immigration into the U.S. At D’Andrea Law, we understand the complicated proceedings of immigration law, and we will work with you closely to ensure that you and your family receive the support that you need. Hiring an immigration attorney in Southern California can help you navigate some tricky situations including:
Dealing with overwhelming paperwork: U.S. immigration law is a tremendously complicated field that is governed by many rules and regulations. Immigration applications are the key to obtaining a visa or green card, so it is crucial that all the paperwork is filled out completely and accurately. Even small mistakes can you leave your application vulnerable to being delayed, returned, and in worse case scenarios, rejected. By partnering with an experienced immigration attorney you can rest assured knowing that you have an advocate that will review all your application documents to ensure everything is complete and correct.
Being declared inadmissible: A common problem encountered by people attempting to immigrate to the U.S. is the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) or the consulate declaring them inadmissible. Inadmissible means that the applicant in question has some flaw on his/her record such as a previous crime or he/she has previously lied to the U.S. government. If one of these situations applies to you, it is best to hire an immigration attorney prior to beginning your application process.
Experiencing delays: Unfortunately, delays often occur when people submit their immigration applications through the USCIS or consulate. This is due mainly to bureaucracy rather than an actual problem with the application. If you have submitted an application and have received no response for months, an experienced California immigration attorney may be able to find an update on the status of your application or what factors are causing the delay.
