Resolving Immigration Problems
In An Honest & Responsible Manner

Meeting with immigration officer doesn’t have to be intimidating

Those who are working on their immigration status will, understandably, have a lot of questions and fears about the entire process — especially if an interview is required. Immigrants in California and across the country can seek the help of a local immigration attorney to prepare them for and provide support throughout all immigration procedures. Utilizing the experience an attorney in this field brings to the table can calm fears and prepare petitioners for every issue that may present itself.

Going through an interview, for any situation, is stressful for most people. So, it is easy to imagine how intimidating an interview regarding immigration status can be. The results of this interview will affect the future of the petitioner and his or her family.

While it is impossible to prepare for everything that may come up during an immigration interview, there are some things that can help everything go as smoothly as possible. For instance, it is possible to take an interpreter into the meeting so that any language barrier is not an issue. Immigrants are also allowed to bring legal representation into an interview. Having support at this crucial meeting can make it less overwhelming and easier to calmly and carefully answer any questions immigration officers may have.

While it is possible to make it through the immigration process without legal assistance, when problems arise, they can be difficult to overcome alone. An immigration attorney can help those progressing through the required procedures — interview included — be prepared for what lies ahead. Immigrants in California do not need to be intimidated by the paperwork or by immigration officers, especially if they have help on their side.
