Some people present themselves as “visa consultants” or “notarios,” who are able to fill out immigration forms on behalf of people who cannot speak or write English very well. Unfortunately, many of these people fail to recognize the complexities of US immigration law, and they end up making decisions that could ruin your chances of obtaining a green card and in many times you may end in deportation proceedings.
Make sure you are dealing with a real green card based on marriage lawyer NYC who is a member of the New York State Bar Association.
Likewise, just as you would not ask a dermatologist to perform open-heart surgery on you, you shouldn’t ask a trusts and estates lawyer to handle an immigration matter for you. Make sure your lawyer practices primarily or exclusively in the area of immigration law. He or she should also be a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).
