Your family has been putting in the time and effort to come to the United States. You have saved money and prepared yourself by learning English. You believe that you’re prepared, so you want to get started on the paperwork now.
It’s a good idea to work with an immigration attorney if you intend to come to the United States. This can be a tricky and draining process, especially when you’re trying to come to the U.S. with your family. The good news is that your attorney will understand what it takes to get a visa, citizenship or green card, so you can live in the United States legally.
What should you look for in a good immigration attorney?
A good attorney will be able to help you understand your rights and responsibilities in your native language, to start with. If English isn’t your first language, then you’ll want to work with an immigration attorney who speaks Spanish or your own native language as well as English as a second language. A bilingual attorney will be able to explain everything clearly, so no mistakes are made.
You should also consider working with an immigration attorney who has positive reviews and results. There are plenty of things that can hold up the visa process, but an attorney who is seasoned will know exactly what the government is looking for when accepting applications and approving them. Check any references you receive, so you can verify them.
