Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Immigration Law

Immigration is an extraordinarily complicated area of law, including administrative regulations, federal statutes, case law, and even constitutional law. For this reason, it is not surprising that people with issues related to immigration law often come to us with many questions. At the Dickson Frohlich, we are committed to making sure our clients understand the status of their case and the potential outcomes they may be facing. We make ourselves available to answer questions and communicate regularly with our clients. Some answer to questions we hear regularly follow in the material below.

  • Do I need a lawyer if I have immigration issues? While there is no rule or law requiring people with immigration concerns to consult with or retain an attorney, the complexity of immigration law and the serious implications of the way in which your case is resolved makes it highly advisable to do so. For example, if your green card is denied, you may be unable to legally work and support yourself. Similarly, if you are unable to secure an H1-B visa for a potential employee, you may suddenly be without personnel critical to the success of your business.
  • How much will my legal fees be? Many people have significant concerns regarding the costs associated with working with an immigration attorney and are surprised to learn that quality legal services are not prohibitively expensive. Of course, each case is different, so it impossible to give you an idea of how much your case may cost without first having a thorough conversation about your situation and goals. When you meet with one of our lawyers, he or she will give you an idea of how much your case may cost and we will provide clear and easy to understand billing arrangement should you choose to retain our firm.
  • When should I call an attorney? It is never too early to speak to an attorney regarding concerns related to immigration law. If your case is speculative and relates to an issue that that will arise in the future, meeting with a lawyer can help you determine whether there are any steps you can take in order to ensure that you issue is resolved smoothly and efficiently. Furthermore, if you do not yet need legal representation, your attorney will advise you as to that fact.

What Should You Do if You have Legal Issues Related to Immigration?

If you have concerns related to immigration law, you should speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner that you have your questions answered and retain an attorney, the sooner your case will be resolved. If your issues are related to your individual immigration status and may result in your deportation or being deemed inadmissible, the advice of an attorney is critical to maximize your chances of obtaining a favorable result. A lawyer will tell what to do or not do to ensure that your application or request is processed as quickly and efficiently as possible.
