I am often asked if you need a lawyer for immigration. And today, I'm going to share with you three reasons why I think you should have a lawyer for your immigration case. The easiest way to put this is that you're either going to spend your time, or you’re going to spend your money.

How to decide

When you decide that you need to file an immigration case, you have a lot to learn. There's a big learning curve, and it's going to take a lot of time for you to find the right resources that you need, prepare the right applications, and monitor your case. You also have to stay updated on any new immigration policies and procedures. So the time that this will take will be yours to spend, or you can ask a lawyer to assist you with that.

A lawyer will monitor your case and keep you up to date

One reason why it's a great idea to have a lawyer is that a law firm will monitor your case from beginning to end. We stay up to date with all the current policies and procedures from immigration. For example, I receive hourly updates from all of my resources to tell me what is changing with immigration. That is how dynamic this field is.

Lawyers know all the rules and regulations that are not included on the immigration website

The second reason why having a lawyer is helpful is that we understand what is not written on the immigration website. So, if you are getting ready to file a case, understanding the underlying laws that Congress has put into place and the underlying regulations from the Department of Homeland Security, USCIS, the Department of Labor, and the Department of State can really make a difference in a successful outcome for your case.

You don't have to worry about your case

Finally, you don't have to worry about your case when you hire a lawyer. Instead of you doing all the work yourself, your lawyer and her team will be in charge of all of that. You simply need to review what has been done, make any additions or changes that you would like, and it is my firm’s job to do all the rest.
