Preparing for a Visa Interview

Preparing for a visa interview can be an overwhelming experience. Most importantly, you need to stay calm and tell the truth. The more organized you are with your documents the better. If the interview includes your spouse or other family member, make sure that they prepare with you.

Are you facing immigration issues?

If you are facing legal issues relating to immigration, it is important for you to speak to an immigration attorney. You may be worried and stressed as to what you can do to protect yourself and your interests. If you have concerns dealing with immigration law issues the first thing you need to do is speak to an attorney so that you can have an understanding of where you are and what you need to do to get to where you want to be. 

Posting Online

Although it may be therapeutic to post your thoughts and feelings online, it can also be very detrimental to your case. Think of it this way, if it's posted online, you can't take it back and online posts will likely make it back to your "ex" and be used against you. Do yourself and your attorney a favor by not sharing. Remember the attorney client privilege only exists with your attorney! 

Do not talk to a CPS investigator without an attorney.

Do not talk to a Child Protective Services (CPS) investigator without an attorney. The law prohibits you from interfering with a CPS investigation. That does not mean you do not have the right to have your attorney present when CPS is doing their investigation. The CPS investigators generally do a good job, but protecting your rights is not their primary objective. Your parent child relationship is the most important relationship you have, do yourself a favor and retain an attorney at the first instance of CPS being involved in your family's lives.
