How a Compassionate Immigration Appeals Lawyer Can Help

While you are not required by law to hire an attorney for appealing an immigration decision, an attorney can help your case. If you’re concerned about the immigration status of yourself or your family, an attorney can help explain your rights and can ensure your rights are protected. An attorney can also work to ensure all paperwork is filed correctly and within the appropriate deadlines, increasing your chances of success.

One of the first things an attorney will do is review your original application and the legal reasons as to why you were denied the benefit. For a successful appeal, you need to understand why your application was denied in the first place and address that issue. Attorneys with experience in immigration appeals have handled multiple appeals. They know what a successful application looks like. By reviewing your paperwork, they will look for why your application was denied and can offer assistance and advice on creating an appeal to specifically tackle those areas of your application.

It is rare for a hearing to occur. Therefore, it is very important to have an attorney who can present legal arguments in writing well to try to preserve your rights.
