Do I need an immigration lawyer for my immigrant visa case?

There is no requirement to use the services of an immigration lawyer in order to file for an immigrant visa to get a green card. But, many people will find the services of an immigration lawyer to be extremely valuable to successfully navigating the immigrant visa process. An experienced immigration lawyer can:

  • Provide you with legal advice that will help minimize the time it takes for you to get a green card
  • Help keep your case on track to avoid unnecessary delays
  • Help ensure that your application is submitted correctly and with all of the evidence necessary to help your application get approved quickly
  • Communicate with USCIS and the Department of State on your behalf
  • Represent you if the government requests additional information about your case
  • Represent you if you need to file an appeal in the event your application is denied
  • Provide legal advice and assistance if you need to apply for a waiver
