For individuals and families navigating America’s ever-changing immigration system, limited finances and the intimidation factor of working with an attorney lead many to try to manage their own immigration forms.
But it’s very common for anyone who isn’t an expert immigration lawyer to make a small mistake that results in the denial of their application for immigration status.
If you ever question yourself, “Is it worth hiring an immigration lawyer?”, then read this article for a full explanation.
Why Do I Need An Immigration Lawyer?
Immigration lawyers help you avoid mistakes
Many of our clients begin looking for immigration lawyers only after their initial application has been denied. If you hire an immigration lawyer up-front, you will avoid costly mistakes and heartbreaking delays in the immigration process.
Have you already submitted paperwork and had it rejected or denied? Don’t worry—Cook Attorneys can help you whatever stage of the process you are in.
Immigration lawyers help you meet deadlines and file appeals
They can help you know what paperwork to file—and when to file it. This is especially important if your first attempt is denied. An immigration lawyer will help you appeal the decision within the correct time frame, which is very strict.
Are you in need of filing an appeal? The experienced immigration attorneys at Cook Attorneys are standing by to help make the confusing process more clear for you and your loved ones.
Immigration lawyers can help with more than just paperwork
Immigration lawyers are experts in paperwork, the legal process, deadlines, and fees associated with helping you or your loved ones stay in this country. But did you know they can also help with translation needs and searches for legal jobs on your valid path to citizenship?
Cook Attorneys has translation services available in almost any language, so you can be confident everything is being done accurately and efficiently.
They can also help you find places to work that will accept your current immigration status, so you will not have to work illegally while you are waiting for citizenship.
