Thread: Lawyer or No Lawyer? I-130, I-360

  1. #1
    Is it true that if you have a lawyer when you petition with I-130 or anything similar you are given priority to people who petition without a lawyer?

    That's what my friend's attorney told her and her husband who are gathering documents right now. This guy claims that when applications are received they are sorted into two different piles - one of those represented by lawyers and one of people who are not represented. Then INS supposedly don't care too much about the un-represented people's pile. They give more attention and time priority to those with lawyers.

    I find this very hard to believe.

    I will be self-petitioning with I-360 without a lawyer and if this would really slow down my petition and have a negative influence, maybe I should just get a lawyer for a name and office or?
