Although you are not required to have a lawyer when applying for an immigrant visa or green card in the United States or overseas, you may need to seek an immigration attorney in El Paso for various other situations. Immigration law can be complicated and if you have any type of negative history with immigration authorities, or record of crimes, you may be more likely to experience complications that can have long-term negative consequences when not handled with the proper legal oversight.
If you are in immigration court proceedings having to deal with deportation, you will need the help of an immigration lawyer guaranteed. Since you may be in a situation where your court proceedings are not yet finished or on appeal, the courts will have the power in this case and using the same application process on your own will not work.
A lawyer can safely guide your application process. If you are considered inadmissible by the USCIS or consulate for multiple reasons, ranging from having committed a crime or previously lied to the U.S. government. If you already know that you have a negative background that could affect your case, you should seek the help of an immigration lawyer to smooth out the process and help shorten the time it takes to complete the process. It is also helpful to have a lawyer sort through all the paperwork and work through the jargon involved. Gathering proper paperwork and handling the fees can delay or return your application if not done correctly. The offices they are submitted to may even reject them altogether. It can be frustrating and cost you in the long run.
