  • Should I get a lawyer if I'm applying for a TN visa?

    Hi,

    I'm currently working as a graphic designer with a OPT work permit, which ends in June. I'm of Mexican origin, and I would like to apply for a TN (NAFTA Professional Worker) to continue working in the U.S..

    I had a friend that got that permit, and he did all the application process throughout a lawyer.

    In my case, I already know about the required documents and application process and I was wondering if getting a lawyer would make a difference. It's just that I would like to avoid paying lawyer fees if I can do the paperwork myself.

    Here's more info about the permitL

    Virtually anything you have around yourself you can get by not paying others and doing it yourself.
    For instance, you can plant seeds and grow vegetables in your backyard and eat those to sustain your diet. You could even diversify your food supply by bringing a dozen or so of cattle which you could then use as part of your meat and diary supply.
    The house you live in - why bother to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to a construction crew when you know you could walk into local Home Depo and buy all the materials and tools you need to build the house you want?
    Same goes with furniture. And what a fool would spend thousands of dollars on any car?
    All you need is metal scrap, bunch of tools, garage and dedication to build a car of your dreams. Worst case scenario: buy two bicycles , put a motorcycle engine in the middle and melt few pipes together and hoopla - you got a motorized means of transportation for yourself without paying any car maker or car dealer.
    And if someone around you is in need of surgery all you need is a sharp knife and some sterilizing gadgets, well may be some painkillers too.

    So, if you can do all above on your own , why should you ever consider hiring an attorney to fill out a piece of paper?
    That's beyond common sense and something only a fool would do.

    I congratulate your decision to take it upon yourself to apply for TN on your own.

        @OldE:
        Thanks for the advice. I'll apply for the permit myself then. About planting my own vegetables and building my car, I think it might be better to go to the supermarket and to a car dealer. Maybe in the future I'll learn to do that myself!

        I love how in America you're encouraged to be independent. Cannot wait to be an American!

        God Bless.



        @NO AMNESTY!!!:
        Go home? I'm already at home. Should I go some place else? Do I need to be in my house to apply for the permit?

        What is a beaner? Is it like a special kind of beans? I love beans by the way.
        Please respond...

          Remember, a man who has himself for a client, has a fool for a client.

          Find a good attorney specializing in TN issues. And whatever, don't use just any attorney or any immigration attorney. Use a specialist. It will be money well spent.

            listen beaner, you are on some type of temporary visa, therefore, you are NOT home.

              @fedarle86: Thanks for the advice, appreciate it. I will start looking for an specialist in my area.

              @No AMNESTY!!!: You're right, I should probably use the term "house" rather than "home." In Mexico, we say that home is wherever your family is. I guess America won't be my home until I bring my family to live here with me. Do you know of a good lawyer that specializes in that?
              Thanks for taking the time to respond.
