A: Hello, most Immigration Lawyers practice Nationwide. You can contact a few lawyers to see if it’s a good fit (fee and service scope)

Also, we now refer to people who don’t have residency or work papers as Non Citizen or undocumented. Illegal makes it sound like he did something wrong generally.

I’m located in NC myself. I offer services all over USA , I practice mostly marriage based immigration and I offer payment plans to help offset the pressure of paying in bulk.

Hope this helps.

A: You should start by doing a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney to make sure that your husband qualifies for the green card. You can find an attorney through Justia. com or AILA.org. Immigration attorneys can practice anywhere in the US so you don't have to limit yourself to the City or State where you live. Focus on finding an attorney that communicates promptly, is clear about their fees, is patient to answer all your questions and that you can afford. Best wishes!!

A: Hi, retaining a lawyer is an important matter and should not be taken lightly. Some lawyers offer free short initial consults to determine if the relationship would mutually benefit. When choosing a lawyer, like any relationship in life, you need to trust and be comfortable with them. Have in mind that is not one price fits all. The more years of experience an attorney have his or her fees may be above average and the opposite is true for less experienced attorneys. Search around and reach out to two or three attorneys and choose one that best suits your legal as well as financial needs. Good luck!

A: I assume you mean that your husband entered the USA without being admitted. This being the case he is going to need a provisional waiver. When looking for an attorney to assist you ask specifically whether they have experience in the filing of waivers. There are many areas of practice within the field of immigration. Not all immigration attorneys work in the area of waivers.
