Immigration matters mostly start with filing one or more specified immigration forms. However, filing immigration forms correctly is only one requirement for having USCIS consider your case, and your claim must be presented well to get the desired immigration benefit.
Many foreign nationals are in the following situation:
"They gather immigration information from all possible sources they could find just to be able to complete that particular form, and they hope to get that approval from USCIS that they had been waiting for all these times. They feel entitled to the immigration relief they sought because they worked hard to complete that form. But do they get USCIS' approval?
"You desperately need that social security number to get that driver's license to be able to drive to work and start your normal life in the U.S. Of course, you want that work permit! It all starts here! You must get USCIS' authorization to work and stay in the United States" before you can get a social security card and a driver's license. You probably already filed some paperwork, but USCIS denied your request! Now, you are back to where you started!!
"You get so worked up in getting the correct information because you want to get it right this time. You talk to your "friends" and "their friends" and probably spend several hours researching online. You know the type of visa you must apply for and many of its requirements. Now, you just have to tell USCIS to give you that darn visa and that work permit. But how do you do that? You gathered a lot of information. But everyone was saying something different. You tried to absorb all that information just so you could finish, and you have even completed that form, well, almost! You know the filing fee amount and want to file the paperwork, and now, you question whether you filled that form correctly and whether USCIS will approve this time and give you that work permit. Because that is the starting point for your dream: "to have a life in the United States." Yes, you are right, this is where it starts, and you must get it right to be able to start!
But then, you are questioning yourself again! "Should I seek help?" Well, should you not?
Many of us go through this common scenario in our regular life because a lot of content is so easily available from "friends" and the internet, and we would love to try our hand at it; well, IF it works! We are optimistic, and we have a lot of hope! But information overload is baffling. It may also depend on how much time you have at your disposal.
Immigration law is complex, and the consequences are harsh. Additionally, it influences peoples' ability to earn their livelihood, tears apart families, and disorients the affected person from the country where (s)he had so many dreams to realize.
The immigration law complexities are multifold because of its interrelated provisions and its crossovers with other areas of law like criminal law, family law, bankruptcy, probate and trust, business law, etc.
