Why Do I Need the Help of a Lawyer for Immigration Documents in the US?

The complexity of the U.S. immigration laws and the complicated immigration process opens up many possibilities for the applicant to commit mistakes. Even modest mistakes in a visa or green card application or in providing the evidence as part of an immigration application process can lead to very long delays that may take years or even outright denials and deportation.

To help manage uncertainties and avoid causes of delays or rejection during immigration applications, many people choose to hire an immigration lawyer.

Hiring an immigration lawyer can help smooth the way in many ways.

Immigration lawyers interpret the law, help you analyze your rights, options, and strategies, and guide you through every step of the difficult immigration process.

How Does a Lawyer Help with Immigration Documents in the US?

One of the most important areas immigration lawyers can help you with is in getting your documents organized. They provide support with the following:

1. They let you know which items you must produce yourself, such as birth certificates or proof of a valid marriage.

2. Through their understanding of the eligibility requirements, they can give you the most reliable advice and provide you guidance on which forms and documents to submit to receive immigration benefits. They will counsel you on eligibility standards and evidentiary requirements that may include those not specifically defined in the instructions for forms. Often, presenting a high volume of documentary evidence and credible testimony are necessary to achieve a favorable outcome.

3. They will advise you on the implications of your answers to questions and the impact of providing or not providing certain documents.

4. They prepare a lot of paperwork on your or your employer's behalf, which can save you valuable hours.

5. They ensure that the information you provide the U.S. government through the various forms you fill out, the collected documents, or the prepared statements and testimony is clear, correct, and consistent. They will cross-check your information on application forms with your biographic and immigration records to help ensure accuracy and completeness. Many immigration applications presuppose the U.S. government officer believing the applicant’s story. The inconsistent information on different forms can create major problems with the application.
