When it comes to choosing an E2 visa lawyer, or a law firm, there are a few things you should take into consideration:
Whit regards to hiring an E2 visa lawyer, experience should be your number one priority. You want to make sure that your lawyer is familiar with the ins and outs of the E2 visa process and has a successful track record of helping clients obtain their visas.
There are a few things you can do to research an attorney’s experience level. First, check out online reviews from past clients. Look for positive reviews that mention the lawyer’s success in helping clients obtain their E2 visas. Next, ask the lawyer for references from past clients. Most E2 visa lawyers are members of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). These references can provide you with first-hand information about the lawyer’s experience and abilities. Finally, schedule an initial consultation with the lawyer to get a better sense of their experience and whether they would be a good fit for your needs.
Secondly, you want to make sure that your lawyer is familiar with the process and requirements. The first step is to file a petition with USCIS. Your lawyer will need to gather evidence to support your case, and a business plan, and demonstrate that you meet the requirements for the visa. They will also need to file any necessary paperwork and pay the required fees. Once your petition is approved, you can then apply for the E2 visa at a U.S. consulate or embassy. The consular officer will review your application and supporting documents and conduct an interview with you. If approved, you will be issued a visa allowing you to enter the United States for a specific purpose and time.
Thirdly, you want to ensure that your E2 visa lawyer is knowledgeable about both federal and state business laws and regulations. Depending on the type of business you are starting, there may be different licenses and permits required. Your lawyer can help guide you through the process of ensuring that your business is in compliance with all laws and regulations.
In conclusion, when choosing an E2 visa lawyer, it is important to consider the lawyer's experience, success rate, and reviews. Furthermore, it is important to ensure that the lawyer is a good fit for you and your case. Lastly, be sure to ask the lawyer questions about their experience and fees.
