FAQ

Common legal questions from our clients
In which area of law are you able to assist me?
We specialize exclusively in U.S. Immigration and Nationality law and can help you with your immigration case in any U.S. state. We are not able to help you with state specific legal questions, but we work with a network of attorneys to help refer your case to other qualified attorneys if we are not able to assist you in your legal matter.
Why do I need an immigration lawyer?
The U.S. government’s procedures and criteria regarding immigration legal matters are complex and constantly changing. An experienced immigration professional can help you be aware of all the issues which may affect your case.
Why are your legal services so affordable?
We have developed a network of efficient immigration paralegals who are backed by sophisticated case management tools. Our team is supervised by in-house immigration lawyers, and you will be provided with attorney representation throughout your case. Using technology and our paralegal team we can charge much less than traditional law firms.
How does this online legal service work?
Think of it as a hybrid between the old and the new, where technology helps our immigration paralegals check your application and supporting documents for potential errors to avoid denials and delays. As a second layer of safety, your assigned immigration attorney will review your case and answer any legal questions you have so you can file with confidence.
Can an immigration attorney make my immigration case process faster?
Nobody can speed up the U.S. government’s processing timeline, but our online tools can help you fill out immigration forms faster. Having an attorney review your case will help ensure your application is complete and will help you avoid mistakes in filing.
Will my assigned immigration lawyer go to court or represent me in USCIS interviews?
No. Because our law firm is based in Utah, we use a limited-scope client agreement that allows us to represent you throughout your case, but not for any in-person matters. You can connect with your immigration attorney via phone, email, or a video-conferencing platform. Our team will work to make sure you are prepared for any in-person interviews or interactions with the U.S. government.
Do I need an immigration lawyer near me?
No, because U.S. immigration law is a federal legal issue, your assigned immigration attorney can help you with any immigration matter. It’s also one of the main reasons our law firm can function fully online and be the most cost-effective option for you.
