Family-Based Immigration

Why Hire an Immigration Attorney?…
Can’t I Fill Out the Forms and Send Them In? 

Family ImmigrationMuch of what’s needed to get a loved-one legal immigration status involves filing paperwork.

This seems simple enough, right?  All a person needs to do is fill in the form!  But anyone who has filled-out a USCIS form will tell you the instructions can be very vague, and the process can be very confusing.

Without attorneys, most people look to online message boards to learn about the immigration process.  While the advice offered on these boards may be correct, often it’s not.

Why Mistakes Can Be Costly

Unfortunately, even the smallest mistakes can be costly.  For most family based petitions, at the very least, you risk:

  • Losing filing fees (currently around $1,500.00)
  • Losing months of valuable time waiting on USCIS hotlines or searching for answers (during which your relative won’t have legal status)
  • Losing the ability to refile after a USCIS denial (i.e. when applying for a Fiancé visa)

Odds are you genuinely need our help…  Immigration Law is a complex and constantly evolving legal area.  Without a knowledgeable guide, the immigration process of bringing families together can be unnecessarily difficult and painful.

Some things you should ask yourself when starting the family immigration process, include:

  • Immigration HelpAre you sure you (or your loved one) qualifies for the visa or citizenship you want?
  • Have you or your loved one ever had any criminal charges in any country?…  If so, have you reviewed the statutes to see if the charge(s) think are “off your record”?  Can you be sure paying the fine, and/or serving probation, and complying with the terms of your deferred adjudication will not land you or your loved one in deportation proceedings and immigration detention?
  • How can you be confident in the eligibility of your family member if you don’t know the consequences of your response to each question on a notice, form, application, or petition?
  • How do you know you’ve selected the correct notice, form, application, or petition… and packaged it in the correct way with the correct supporting documentation to get the result you want?

The attorneys representing your petition have amassed a wealth of legal knowledge through legal scholarship and learning through procedural experience how that law is applied.

In addition, our lead attorneys began their careers with Immigration Law Firms and learned the professional in’s-and-out’s of the field from experienced mentors.

Plus – our office continues to practice and encounter all kinds of different and unique situations that require new study into case law – and constant monitoring of changing legal events on a daily basis.

We never stop learning for you!

In fact, this may come as a surprise to you, but…

“Questions on immigration forms, notices, applications, and petitions aren’t designed
so DHS Immigration Officers can decide if they like you…

They’re designed to generate administrative data and trigger grounds for inadmissibility!

If you’re thinking about representing yourself (or using the services of a non-licensed, unregulated Public Notary) in an Immigration Proceeding, I genuinely wish you the sincerest of good fortune.  I recommend you read every instruction extra-carefully and call the National Customer Service Center (NCSC) at 1-800-375-5283.  You can ask certified government agents if you are using  the correct forms, and ask if you have all the necessary supporting documentation.

On the other hand, if you want a licensed professional on your side with rock-solid experience handling legal situations like yours’, go ahead and give us a call today at 303-886-7187.

Our consultations are always free, and our representation rates are low.  We also offer affordable payment plans to all of our clients.

Discounts for Multiple Visa Applications

Because it takes us less time per application to put together multiple applications, we pass this savings onto you.

What that means to you is, whether you’re applying for an status adjustment with your family-based petition, or you intend to sponsor multiple family members, we give you a discount for multiple applications.

A couple observations I believe true about our human condition, are:

“In our family relationships, we bring out the most profound depths and heights of life experience, and life is nothing if not a limited opportunity to experience.  I take the trust and confidence my clients place in my knowledge and experience with the utmost of humility. I resolve for nothing less than 100% success on the bottom line, to ensure their loved ones will be legalized as American residents and citizens.”
