Do I Really Need an Immigration Lawyer? Things to Consider Before You Go It on Your Own

Do you have immigration issues? When personal expenses add up, it’s tempting to try to save money by taking matters into your own hands. But when you file a form on your own, you may be going into it blindly. What types of forms or supporting documents does this immigration case require? Most importantly, what are the eligibility requirements to receive an immigration benefit? For these answers, you need to touch base with an immigration lawyer.

It is important to note that each case is different. Through a careful assessment of the personal life and background of our clients, Migration Resource Center determines whether you are eligible for an immigration benefit. Because we only take cases that can be successfully completed, you save time and money. Ultimately, with our representation and knowledge, your application package is more likely to be accepted.

Playing with immigration matters on your own is playing with your life. According to a recent  policy memo, USCIS states that it no longer issues documents (Requests for Evidence) when application information is missing. USCIS will flat-out reject application packages, instead. Sometimes, this means applicants face removal proceedings.

What sets Migration Resource Center apart from others is our human approach to immigrant needs. We cater to low-income individuals by offering affordable fees, based on ability to pay. We connect immigrants to psychologists and medical experts, if needed. At the end of the day, it is our pleasure to get to know you all. We welcome everyone to come in for a free consultation to speak to us!
