FAQs About Immigration Lawyers

Can An Immigration Lawyer Speed Up The Process?

While the processing of immigration applications depends greatly on the speed at which the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services works, hiring an immigration attorney to help you fill out and submit paperwork, as well as respond to follow-up inquiries, can significantly speed up the process. Immigration itself takes a substantial amount of time, but having a professional support you can ease the burden and help you meet your goals much quicker.

Do Immigration Lawyers Really Help?

You may be tempted to work on an application and resolve any outstanding issues on your own, but with the amount of paperwork and back and forth that’s often required from the government, it can quickly become overwhelming. Immigration is a highly complicated and difficult matter to navigate, which is why you should consider hiring or consulting the best immigration lawyer for your unique case, even for something as simple as a travel visa.

Is Immigration Law Hard?

Immigration law is complex and may require knowledge of both federal and state laws. Top immigration lawyers who specialize in these matters will be familiar with nationwide and local policies, so if you’re having difficulty dealing with an application, it’s best to contact a law firm to get set up with an attorney.
