Hiring an immigration lawyer is a big decision. The immigration process is difficult and scary, and then you must decide whether you want to invest money in a professional service. Along with guiding you through the legal process, here are seven reasons why you should consider hiring an immigration lawyer.

Hiring an immigration lawyer is a big decision, make an informed choice.

1. Knowledge

Immigration law is complicated. If you want to do it on your own and get it right, there is a ton of information you need to know. A lawyer understands the law, has practical experience applying the law, and will have a better perspective of your options and likelihood of success.  

2. Avoid mistakes

Get it right the first time. Minor missteps in completing forms, not supplying enough information, or providing incorrect documents or evidence may cause delays or possible rejection of your application. If you need to start over for some reason, you will need to “get in line” again, you may need to repay government fees, or even trigger a “trap” (such as bans for unlawful presence).

3. It is an investment

Time is money, and mistakes are expensive. Hiring a lawyer will reduce the time needed to understand and complete all necessary procedures as required by the law. A lawyer will reduce the risk of errors that could negatively impact your immigration situation.

4. Experience

An experienced lawyer has seen many situations and tried different strategies. They have also seen changes in laws and policies and have learned to adapt quickly. 

5. Recommendations

An immigration lawyer can advise you on critical aspects of processes, guiding you through the dos and don’ts.

6. Peace of mind

An experienced, empathic, and effective immigration lawyer will be able to explain in simple terms how the facts in your case affect your options, what your alternatives are, and what the pros and cons are for each one. You can ask them about your worries and concerns and get an honest answer. Peace of mind should be a key factor when you choose your lawyer. 

7. Path to citizenship

An immigration lawyer can help with many parts of your immigration process. Although the process may seem never-ending, citizenship is possible. From entering the country to becoming a citizen, your lawyer can support you when it matters.

Get support through the different stages of the immigration process.

Immigration law is complex to understand. Although a lawyer may not be necessary, an attorney may help the process go more smoothly. Whatever you choose, be mindful of the risks and invest in your future.
