Why it is a good idea to hire an experienced immigration solicitor in Londonby Hudson Mckenzie Lawyers and Solicitors who understand you
The prevailing political scenario and 2016 election of Donald Trump for U.S. President have instigated fear among immigrant clusters. In the midst of the anti-immigrant bombast, it’s important to discuss your options in authorizing your status or getting the applicable visa with an experienced immigration lawyer.
Why go for a lawyer when there is lower-cost help available through immigration consultants and online immigration services? The reasons could be many, from guaranteeing you get precise advice to avoiding unnecessary delays.
1. You get guidance on which documents to submit
A lawyer is not supposed to fill out application forms for immigration benefits. Any person can do the forms, which are, along with the instructions, available for free on U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services and the U.S. Department of State’s websites.
But U.S. government agencies are not meant to act as your advocates and do not consider your specific situation when providing resources and information to you. Only an immigration solicitor in London, who really understands the eligibility requirements, can give you the most trusted advice on which forms and documents you need to submit to avail immigration benefits.
Legitimate immigration consultants and online immigration processors can certainly help you do with the forms and provide the paperwork to USCIS and DOS at a much lower cost than what lawyers charge.
Moreover, your understanding of which forms and documents to submit is not always clear by just reading instructions or doing your own research. Immigration consultants and online immigration services are forbidden from giving any legal advice related to your immigration case, including which forms and documents to submit. Instead, you yourself have to make this determination before they then fill out the forms with your answers and prepare the documents you have given them for filing with the respective U.S. government agency.
2. You receive legal advice on how to best showcase your case
A good immigration solicitor in London will always advice you on eligibility requirements and evidentiary requirements, including those that are not defined in the instructions for forms or are otherwise willingly known.
For example, while an immigration consultant or online immigration service will approve your marriage certificate and divorce decrees for prior marriages as sufficient in an I-130 spousal immigrant petition, an immigration solicitor in London will counsel you on additional documents to submit to prove your marriage is valid and bona fide.
A immigration solicitor in London might be superfluous in highly simple cases, where the bare minimum is all that’s required to get the case approved. But in many cases, a high volume of documentary evidence, as well as credible testimony, are needed to achieve a favorable outcome.
A majority of the growing online immigration processors states exactly that it does not
give legal advice or representation, but provides a service similar to TurboTax for visa applications. At a very competitive price, they provide online processing of K-1 fiancée visas, spousal visas, parent visas, green cards(adjustment of status), removal of conditions, citizenship (naturalization), joint sponsorship, and deferred action (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival, under President Obama).
