Pros and Cons of a US immigration Attorney in Canada
If you’re looking for US immigration lawyer and you are located in Canada, it would be a reasonable assumption that you need help with the United States immigration system. Moreover, you have decided that your need is complex enough that you would benefit from professional advice. Having made that decision, what is the best way to get that advice? In some ways, it is very helpful to be able to visit an attorney in person. Sitting across the desk from an attorney gives you the ability to judge for yourself whether or not the attorney is the kind of person that you believe could help you best. No one would deny that a face-to-face conversation enables you to learn a lot about the other person. However, the drawback with seeking professional advice locally is the subject of that advice, US immigration laws, are necessarily foreign to a lawyer located in a country other than the United States. In terms of experience and understanding, a lawyer located outside of the United States is never going to have the depth or breadth of knowledge about US immigration law that a US immigration attorney, located in the United States would have, especially one practicing exclusively immigration law.
Video Conferencing: The Solution for a US Immigration Lawyer in Canada
A face-to-face conversation certainly provides feedback to a client seeking confidence and reassurance in the choice of legal professional. However, we believe the advent of high-speed Internet and video conferencing services like Skype mean that its close substitute, a face-to-face meeting over service like Skype can provide the same level of security. Like most today, our office is set up to provide video consultations. In many ways these are more convenient than a face-to-face meeting. Rather than traveling to an office, taking time out of your busy day, you can simply open a laptop in the comfort of your own home or office and conduct a video conversation. In some ways the ability to have this conversation on your own territory leads to comfort with the consultation process that might be missing in a face-to-face meeting. In short, a video consultation can deliver all you need, and more.
How A US Immigration Attorney Can Help You
Now that you see the possibility of a video consultation meeting your needs, the search for a US immigration attorney in Canada can be expanded to include places where you are more likely to find a skilled US immigration attorney, the United States! Many times, it makes sense to look for an attorney in the state to which you think you might be heading. For example, if you are romantically involved with a US citizen and are considering marriage or becoming a fiancé, you are considering perhaps moving to the United States to be with your spouse- to-be, looking for an immigration attorney in the state of your US citizen spouse to be makes sense. Similarly, we have assisted a lot of Canadians with E-2 investor visas. Consulting a US immigration attorney located in the state that is home to the business that you are thinking of purchasing or starting also makes sense. If you have them potential employment with the US employer, perhaps through the NAFTA treaty, you hope to obtain TN status, the US immigration attorney located in the state of the employer is in the best position to advise you on the employer on the necessary paperwork. As a last example, if for whatever reason you are inadmissible to the United States due either to past criminal conviction in Canada or the United States, you probably need a waiver to enter the United States. We have successfully assisted Canadians with these waivers.
