Immigration Lawyers

Immigration lawyers can be extremely helpful, especially if the immigrant does not speak English well. An immigration lawyer should know the latest law, the fastest procedures, and be skilled in handling INS paperwork. To find a good immigration lawyer, check with the local bar association or any consumer-oriented social service or voluntary agency. If you need a lawyer to start the immigration process from outside the United States, the American consulate or embassy will be able to help you. In all cases, shop around, and be careful about paying too high a fee “up front”.
