Why Do You Need an Immigration Lawyer?

Immigration laws are complex and confusing, they change in the blink of an eye. That’s why you can not afford not to have a lawyer dedicated to immigration. Even the smallest mistakes can have serious and permanent consequences – such as the denial of visas, deportations, etc.

Why does it pay off to have Attorney Ernesto and his team represent him:

We have the staff that will fight for you and your family.
You will have our help every step of the way.
You will always be treated by a person from our office, not an answering machine.

Can I fill out the forms and send them myself? Why do I need an immigration lawyer?

The process can be very confusing, stressful and even annoying. If you do not have a lawyer, you are probably looking on the internet to learn about the Immigration process. The advice of these sites may be correct, but often they are not, using that advice is a risk. These sites do not have staff to help you. If you have any questions, there is no where you can call and ask for the process to be explained. We also want you to bear in mind that not all cases are the same and that each case has a different form to be processed.
Asking for a family member is a little harder than everyone thinks; it is not just to send the forms, you must also send the correct documentation.
Attorney Ernesto and his Legal Office staff will be happy to explain and help you in your Petitions for your family members.

What Can The Errors Cost?

Unfortunately, even the smallest mistakes can be expensive. For most requests based on the family, there is a risk of:

  • The loss of payments (currently around $ 1,800.00)
  • Lose months of your valuable time waiting (where your family member will not have a legal status)
  • Losing the ability to retry after a USCIS rejection (Example: When requesting a financé visa.)

Don’t Leave It Up to Chance – Talk to Us, First!

Most likely, you really need our help… The immigration laws are very complex and constantly evolving. Without an expert guide, the immigration process to unite families can be unnecessarily difficult and painful. Some things you should consider before sending or initiating the immigration process for your family are:

“Are you sure you or your loved one qualifies for the visa or citizenship you want?”

“Have you or your loved one ever had any criminal charges in any country? If so, have you reviewed the statutes to see if the charge(s) think are “off your record”? Can you be sure paying the fine, and/or serving probation, and complying with the terms of your deferred adjudication will not land you or your loved one in deportation proceedings and immigration detention?”

“How can you be confident in the eligibility of your family member if you don’t know the consequences of your response to each question on a notice, form, application, or petition?”

“How do you know you’ve selected the correct notice, form, application, or petition… and packaged it in the correct way with the correct supporting documentation to get the result you want? The attorneys representing your petition have amassed a wealth of legal knowledge through legal scholarship and learning through procedural experience how that law is applied.”

In addition, our lead attorneys began their careers with Immigration Law Firms and learned the professional in’s-and-out’s of the field from experienced mentors. Plus, our office continues to practice and encounter all kinds of different and unique situations that require new study into case law — and constant monitoring of changing legal events on a daily basis.
We never stop learning for you! In fact, this may come as a surprise to you, but…

“Questions on immigration forms, notices, applications, and petitions aren’t designed so DHS Immigration Officers can decide if they like you… they’re designed to generate administrative data and trigger grounds for inadmissibility!”

If you’re thinking about representing yourself (or using the services of a non-licensed, unregulated Public Notary) in an Immigration Proceeding, I genuinely wish you the sincerest of good fortune. I recommend you read every instruction extra-carefully and call the National Customer Service Center (NCSC) at 1-800-375-5283. You can ask certified government agents if you are using the correct forms, and ask if you have all the necessary supporting documentation.
On the other hand, if you want a licensed professional on your side with rock-solid experience handling legal situations like yours, go ahead and give us a call today at 303-886-7187 or 719-822-2863. We offer affordable payment plans to all of our clients.

Discounts for Multiple Visa Applications

We can Offer Discounts for Multiple Requests since it takes us less time to gather the information for the applications, and these savings are for you and your family.

What this means is that if you are requesting an adjustment of status with your family-based petition, or you intend to sponsor several family members, you and your family would be saving.

A couple of observations we believe true about our human condition, are:

“In our family relationships, we carry out the deepest and highest experiences of our life, and life is but a limited opportunity to experience. I take the trust that my clients place in my knowledge and experience with maximum humility. I resolve no less than 100% of the cases successfully, to make sure that their loved ones were legalized as residents and American citizens.”

Immigration Consequences for Criminal Acts

If you are currently without legal immigration status and you’ve been charged with a criminal act, don’t hesitate… immediately contact an attorney. If you believe you’ll suffer immigration consequences for a criminal charge, then the time to take action is now.

Don’t wait for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to put a hold on you and deport you. Because once you’re in deportation, there are few defenses available to keep you in the country. Hire an attorney to ensure that you get the charge reduced — or you are able to negotiate a settlement that doesn’t involve spending a single day in jail. If you can keep out of jail, then most likely ICE will not know of your transgression, and you can prevent deportation.

To help you out in your time of crisis, we offer affordable payment plans and no hidden fees for representation. That means you’ll pay just one lump sum to keep you away from deportation, even if we take your case to a lengthy and time consuming trial.

So please call us now at 303-886-7187 in Denver or 719-822-2863 in Colorado Springs for an attorney consultation.

Jail Visits

Have a friend or loved one in jail who needs to speak with an attorney about his/her rights and the potential consequences of the charges he/she is facing?
Why not have an attorney go to the jail, speak with them in person and answer all their questions and concerns?

If you have a friend, family member or loved one who is in jail for a criminal case, because of an immigration hold — or in immigration detention — The Abogado Ernesto Law Group will send an attorney to visit him/her in jail or detention for a consultation about their case.

Sometimes, people are unexpectedly arrested and taken to jail. Often, friends or family will visit an attorney, then go to the jail and try to explain what the attorney said.
Unfortunately, friends and family often don’t know all the facts about the current criminal charges or the details of past criminal charges (if any). Without knowing these things, it is difficult for an attorney to evaluate a case or give accurate advice about potential consequences.

Similarly, friends and family of someone with an immigration hold may not know enough information for the attorney to determine whether the detained person can get out of jail, whether they will be deported, or what options may be available in immigration court.

Call The Abogado Ernesto Law Group at 303-886-7187 or 719-822-2863 and we will send an attorney to visit your friend or loved one in jail for an in-person consultation for a low fee!
