Insider TRUTH About the Visa and Immigration Process

 

MYTH

People think that Visa applications are a relatively simple process. They think they will either do it themselves, or find the cheapest lawyer because it’s all the same.

 

MISTAKES

People needing visas find out that the Visa system is an impossible labyrinth, that it is easy to make errors and give wrong evidence, and that once they sign with a lawyer, most have their own agendas you didn’t know about, hidden costs, they do not keep you informed, treat you as a ‘number’, may create only a ‘fair’ application and ignore your needs.

 

The stakes are high! Denials are more likely the second time around, and appeals of denials are expensive and can take years. A quick, careless work permit application---even if successful---can jeopardize permanent residency later. Delays resulting from careless applications can make things more complicated and expensive. It costs more to fix a problem than to prevent one!

 

CONSEQUENCES

So people badly in need of visas often experience hellish, highly stressful situations, and consequences. The visa process costs them much more in the long run, they feel alone, lost, frustrated or angry by wasting precious time and money being ignored by their lawyers who do not follow up on their initial promises. For those trying to do it on their own, they suffer anxiety by conflicting, often out-of-date information online, and feel highly stressed and fearful that their errors cost them delay or they even destroy their chance of getting a visa.

 

Visas and immigration can be key to the survival of your company, your choice of life-long profession and the future of your family. The long term consequences can include you not having the opportunity to change your life, to live your dreams or to better your family’s situation.

    My former lawyers neglected to file the petition to freeze the age of my children when they were still below 18 years old (now, over aged) and made the situation worse, for not filing the 'follow to join petition' within a year when I got my green card. I had consulted 5 lawyers, some well-known with good reputations: a professor; a silver awardee at that (had overweening attitude); some immigration state prosecutors but, none, had given me the assurance that there was a possible resolution to my dilemma. One lawyer even stated that, "there is no such thing as compassionate consideration in the immigration." This gave me years of guilty feelings on not finding the 'RIGHT' lawyer for my children's petition. Prayers were the only thing that gave me hope that the 'RIGHT' lawyer will come. As I searched through the internet, Atty Tamara Relis, PhD responded that she can help me with my problem. She and the rest of the Relis Law, especially Marie and Coby have great work ethics: prompt in responding to raised issues, diligent, detail-oriented, broadminded, humble and honest. Endowed with all of these traits, with extended patience and much-required skills, Dr Tamara, in collaboration with her associates, made an unfeasible case turned into a remarkable resolution on my children's case. Words were not enough to return such an excellent accomplishment! Though, my children aren't here yet, we are eternally grateful for your help. We will never forget this.Prayers worked miracle. Kudos to all of you! God bless us all! For those, who are in limbo on their immigration matters, seek 1st the guidance and expertise of the Relis Law. They are committed to bring their very best.

    Coming across Dr. Relis and her team was honestly a blessing. Me and my partner were looking for a law firm to help us with our immigration process and after a couple of interviews with other law firms, which only left us wanting and expecting more, we found RelisLaw and they filled all the gaps for our needs, making us feel confident that we were in good hands. Their professionalism, knowledge of the laws and rules, quality of their work and service combined with a personal connection and care about our situation it's just exactly what you want from a law firm. They have been there for us 24/7, even through these hard times, with such a warmth that is just admirable. I recommend them 100%, I would hire them again blind folded no doubt and will recommend them to anyone who needs a lawyer. You won't regret it and it’s honestly the best investment you can do to your life. They will help and advise you like no other but most important, they will care for you and do their best on anything they can. I LOVE THEM, A TRUE BLESSING !!

  • Michael M.

    My partner and I were in search of a law firm to help with our immigration process and came across Dr. Relis. Upon meeting we both felt we wanted her to represent us. She was direct, professional, honest and credible, making us feeling extremely comfortable in every way. We are still in the process but with these trying times in the world they are there working day and night for us. Dr. Relis, and her team along with Coby and Marie get 5 stars!!!
