  • Is a Lawyer necessary?

    I am a college student, filing for my husband for permanent residence. I am a US citizen, and everyone has scared me and said I need to have a lawyer represent me and go over my files. But I cannot afford, the prices in my area, while being a full time microbiology major in college. Can anyone offer advice in the whole process. He is here on a B-2, we got married 2 months ago, and his status is still legal.

      No, you do not need a lawyer. You can download all of the forms you need from http://uscis.gov/graphics/howdoi/LPRApplication.htm

          Obviously there is a lot she is not telling us/ Only criminals need lawyers. This is clearly a fraudulent marriage. Get out.

                  If you are a full-time student at a decent-sized university, they may have some sort of legal service that is free or inexpensive for students. That would at least be a place to start to find out if there are any complications in your case. But if he doesn't have a criminal record and isn't out of status immigration-wise, it doesn't seem like there should be any problem.

                    Lawyer necessary...not at all, or at least as long your marriage is legitimate and your spouse hasn't been out of status over 180 days. It is just as much of paperwork as you've got to go through while studying in college, believe me! It isn't a rocket science and the positive side of doing everything by yourself is that you SAVE a lot of money

                      You don't need a lawyer. I filled out all of the paperwork for my wife and everything was fine. She's with me here in the U.S. now so there's the proof!
