The field of Immigration & Nationality Law has become increasingly complex with the passage of new Immigration laws since 1996. You should feel comfortable with your lawyer’s knowledge, expertise and experience in handling your immigration matter. When hiring a lawyer, most of us hire someone who has been referred to us by a family member or friend. Legal fees vary from law firm to law firm.
