Why Hire an Immigration Lawyer in Florida?

There is no legal requirement to work with an attorney. You are permitted to file petitions and applications on your own. However, hiring immigration lawyers can be one of the most important decisions you make. The reality is the immigration system is complex and changing all the time. An immigration attorney in Florida can help you in many ways:

An immigration attorney understands the local resources available to you. Your immigration attorney knows Broward County and the surrounding area. They regularly appear before the Miami Immigration judges you may encounter in local immigration courts.  They regularly appear before the USCIS officers at the Miami Field Office, Oakland Park Field Office, Hialeah Field Office, and Kendall Field Office in the Miami District and the West Palm Beach Field Office in the Tampa District.

An immigration law firm knows the United States immigration law. If you live in South Florida and are applying for a visa, green card, citizenship or any other immigration benefit, you will quickly realize the immigration system is very complex. It can be even more challenging if English is not your first language. A U.S. immigration lawyer in Florida speaks your language, explaining terms to you in a way you can understand and using their extensive knowledge of immigration law to work on your behalf.

An immigration lawyer in Broward County or your region can advise you. Do you know all the types of visas you may qualify for? Do you know which application is most appropriate for your situation? Do you understand how likely you are to succeed with an application? The best immigration lawyer for you in Fort Lauderdale is the attorney who helps you understand what you need to do to achieve your desired results. They can steer you in the right direction and stay with you every step of the way.

In Fort Lauderdale, the best immigration lawyer for you can save you time and hassle. They do not just help you fill out forms.  They make sure that you follow all the rules and do not have to deal with delays created by mistakes. An attorney ensures your application or petition is correct the first time and takes care of the paperwork, so you can focus on building your life.

First Class Lawyer


Mr. Shane has been my immigration lawyer for 3 years. He helped make my process of becoming an American citizen a very easy, smooth and stress-free experience.
