The Cost of Hiring an Immigration Lawyer in St. Joseph

Unfortunately, it is impossible for any attorney to give a flat quote for immigration services without knowing the specific problem. However, here are some things to consider about the cost of paying a lawyer to help with your immigration case.

  • How much would it cost to re-enter the U.S. later if deported?
  • How long would it take to earn the money if you are allowed to remain in the U.S. compared to the loss of income you may face if removed?
  • Can you afford to start your immigration journey all over again?
  • Can you afford to be separated from loved ones?

No doubt, the stakes are high in immigration proceedings, but the good news is that most of the law is straightforward once you understand it. Of course, immigration law is always changing, and it is not designed to be easy for the general public (in particular, immigrants) to grasp. With time and study, most immigrants could likely figure out how to navigate the system. Sadly, immigration courts move quickly, at times ignoring the law and making rushed decisions. Therefore, having a lawyer at your side is often the key element that can make the difference between staying in the U.S. or being removed unjustifiably.

How to Win Your Immigration Case

Every case is entirely unique. In fact, they are as unique as the people who must live through the process. However, there are a few things that seem to remain the same. Here are some simple pointers to remember:

  • Keep your attorney notified of a working phone number, email address, or another form of contact at all times.
  • Do not commit any crimes. If you need help after a criminal offense, let us know, but it is always best to stay arrest-free at all times.
  • Avoid working illegally. If you must work, talk to an attorney first to get guidance.
  • Do not sign anything or send any forms to the government without talking to a lawyer first.
  • Do not let family members sign or mail back forms to the government without talking to a lawyer.
