  2. I agree with my colleague. It would be cheaper to go with an experienced attorney to make sure it is done right and there will be no need for appeals, motion to reconsider, deportation defense - all costly. Then there are those filing fees.
    You do not provide enoguh information to advise you on the best way to proceed from this point forward.

  3. If the income is not there, the motion is a waste of money. No, only the person affected or the attorney can submit.

  4. I agree with my colleagues. Make sure to consult with an experienced immigration attorney to advice you what option will be best for you based on your circumstances. Make sure you do not delay it, because you have a deadline of 33 days, if the notice was mailed to you, to file I-290B.
