Why do I Need an Immigration Attorney?
You need to know your immigration rights under the Immigration and Nationality Act. An application for immigration benefits, before United States Citizenship and Immigration Service, requires the application of specific facts to the immigration law. Failure to follow the requirements of USCIS and the immigration and nationality act will lead to a denial of any and all benefits and possibly a referral to the immigration court. Immigration court (i.e. deportation hearing) is a full-fledged court room with a judge, prosecutors, evidence, and witnesses. If you lose your case, the penalty is great: banishment from the United States, separation from your family, and perhaps even death in your country of origin. The seriousness of immigration issues is why Geygan and Geygan, Ltd. represent people like you and your loved ones.
The cost of failure
You need an immigration attorney because of the seriousness of the immigration process as mentioned immediately above: If you lose your case, the penalty is great: banishment from the United States, separation from your family, and perhaps even death in your country of origin.
Websites for immigration consultants and for governmental agencies themselves are often plagued with misinformation or a lack of thorough information.
Governmental agencies are enforcement agencies. They are trying to keep people like you and your family out of the United States, not help them get in.
Workers are not adequately trained in immigration law and its ongoing developments.
Your case is different from any other person’s case and workers do not have the ability to distinguish the facts necessary to help you.
Workers are not held liable for giving misinformation. There is no incentive to help you or to provide accurate up to date information.

Your right to an attorney
You have the right to be represented by an attorney in all immigration proceedings. However, the government does not pay for your attorney. In other words, while you have a right to an attorney, you must pay for attorney services.
