How to Prepare for Your First Meeting with an Immigration Lawyer

If you're planning on meeting an immigration lawyer who can give you the tools you need to become a temporary citizen with a visa or a permanent citizen, there are certain questions you need to compile before your first meeting in order to make the most of it, as well as steps you should take to prepare for the meeting. By keeping the following tips in mind, your meeting with your immigration lawyer is sure to go more smoothly and quickly than if you went to your meeting unprepared.

Have All of Your Documents with You

When you first meet your immigration attorney, you need to have all of the documents and information ready that he or she asked you to compile for your meeting. You may have had to fill out a form with basic information, such as your full name and contact information, or you may have had to fill out a questionnaire. These documents are important to get things going, so make sure you don't forget them at home.

Have a List of Questions Ready

Without a doubt, you'll probably have plenty of questions to ask your immigration attorney, and this is perfectly fine and completely expected. Therefore, don't be afraid to discuss whatever questions or concerns you have. This is your opportunity to get the answers and clarification you need, so make sure you write down all of your questions in advance so you don't forget any of them while you're at the meeting. You may even want to email the questions over to your attorney prior to the meeting so that he or she can have the answers ready when you arrive.

A few of the questions you may ask include:

  • What fees will I need to pay? These include legal, filing, and government fees.
  • How long will it take for my case to be reviewed and completed?
  • What can I expect during the case?
  • Is there anything else I need to do, or paperwork I need to fill out?

Arrive On Time and Relax

This is a very important meeting, and your attorney's time has been set aside specifically for you. Therefore, make sure you arrive a few minutes early to be absolutely certain you'll be on time for the meeting. To do so, make sure you're able to confirm the address and get driving directions in advance. You may even choose to drive to the attorney's office a day or more in advance so you can get a feel for the time it will take to get there and the flow of traffic. Again, the last thing that you want is for your meeting to be rushed because you arrived late.

Finally, try to relax during your meeting. Successful immigration attorneys like those at Nelson & Associates know exactly what they need to do to get you the temporary or permanent citizenship you seek.

If you follow the above tips and listen to your immigration attorney closely, you'll be on your way to citizenship before you know it!
