Why should I talk to an attorney about immigration relief options?

It’s important to talk to a qualified attorney or accredited representative and not just seek advice online or from family members or other consultants in the community (like notaries) because the immigration laws are very complicated and not everyone knows all of the laws and legal options.  Also, some people are dishonest and want to trick you into paying them more money than you should.  If you file an application and are not eligible, or if you give false information to immigration, your application can be rejected and you can be placed into removal proceedings and deported.
