When Do You Need an Immigration Lawyer?

Not all issues pertaining to immigration require involvement of a lawyer. For example, if you are just visiting a country for things like vacation and will return within the stipulated time frame, you may not need assistance of an attorney. However, immigration laws can be complex and when you find that you need to reapply for immigration, which you had done incorrectly, or save yourself from being sent away after an application goes wrong, you may need to have the helping hand of a qualified lawyer. Here are good reasons you need the services of an immigration lawyer San Diego, CA. 

Efficiency in completing visa application

Whether it is an immigrant or non-immigrant visa, you can save your time by seeking help of an attorney. A lawyer will help speed up the process of application. The attorney knows the kind of visas and relief that are available and will assist in compiling a valid application. It can save you time and money.


Mitigate risk of disapproval

When you make mistakes in the visa application process, you are likely to be denied the approval of your immigrant application. An attorney may help you avoid rejection of application. Where more information and evidence is needed, the attorney may also help.

On top of that, the legal practitioner will prepare you when attending an interview at the USCIS in the country. The attorney also evaluates your case and advises appropriately. Sometimes, after examining the case, the attorney can tell you if it is impossible to get the application approved.


Illegal presence

In case, you are in the country illegally, you want to seek help of a lawyer. The attorney will review your case and help you identify avenues, if any, which can be applied to secure your stay in the country. This reduces the risk of being separated from loved ones and friends.
