What does our agency do?

We are a Not-For-Profit Immigration legal services provider organization. As such, we only deal with Immigration law; our staff attorneys, paralegals and counselors are all regularly trained and updated in this field. We specialize in family based Immigration law and applications such as ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS (I-485), ALIEN RELATIVE PETITIONS (I-130), NATURALIZATION (N-400) AND GREEN CARD REPLACEMENT (I-90) and many more.

Why should we do our case with your agency?

Although there is no requirement that you use any organization or attorney/accredited representative to file your case, there are reasons why it makes common sense. 1) Any legitimate agency or attorney will file a Form known as a G-28 if they represent your interest as a petitioner, beneficiary or applicant. One of the best things about this is that the USCIS then has to send all appointments and receipts- any correspondence- to both you and our office. What this means in practical terms is that the chances of you not receiving a timely appointment are greatly lessened. This is of great importance in a field where even missing one appointment usually derails the application.

Secondly, and probably most importantly, submitting an Immigration filing is one of the most serious and important documents you will ever file. Outside of getting married and starting a family, becoming a legal permanent resident or citizen of our country is one of the most life changing experiences. The legal ramifications and far reaching consequences of an insufficient or botched application cannot be overemphasized. NTA’s (Notices To Appear) or Deportation notices are now issued much more readily on non-qualifying cases because of the extra personnel available. A consultation prior to filing with one of our staff is always a good idea. No appointment is necessary for consultations and they are free.

Lastly, all our agency does is Immigration work; our staff- attorneys, paralegals, supervisors, clerks- all practice only Immigration. What this means to you is that we keep up on current laws and procedures so that you don’t have to. In this way procedural errors are lessened for your application. Anyone can fill out Immigration forms, but knowing that they are done correctly is another story. Using taxes as an analogy, it’s always better to consult and file with an expert in the field to avoid unnecessary aggravation due to inexperience.

    I decided to bring my significant other to America on a fiancé visa so we could be together. After successfully … read more getting him here I was recommended by a close friend of mine to try Immigration Advocacy Services. When I tell you from the beginning to the end the communication, the preparation and the staff was phenomenal. They took on my husband case like it was their first case they were going to win. My husband came literally 2 weeks before the pandemic shutdown so you know his case was going to be a tough one. Immigration Advocacy Services made sure we crossed out T’s and dotted our I’s and no hair was out of place when it came to our paperwork. Because of the pandemic timelines it took quite some time to get responses from immigration, but God is good because my husband got approved for all three documents he applied for. The front Representative Rose was just a professional sweetheart. Every time I called for updates she always had encouraging words to say and gave me hope to hold on to. And when we got a document mailed to the office for pick she had so much enthusiasm in her voice that always made me happy to come pick up the approved documents. Thank you Mr. Meloni again for personally making sure my husband got the best service in your establishment. If you need immigration services Immigration Advocacy has some of the best lawyers and staff to take on your case.
