  1. Good question, some attorneys think that, if you reentered before 6/15/2007 you can get deferred action, but will have a big bar to getting a greencard in the future. Others have an opposite opinion. The program is too new to say for sure.

    I suggest NOT filing or a while.

    As for fees, in all honesty, since we're not allowed by ethical rules and in some states anti-trust laws, we don't discuss fees with each other, much less the public.

  2. You should have an attorney review your case. If that attorney decides they will take the case they fees will be discussed between you both.


  3. You need to speak privately with an attorney before you apply. You can compare fees and differences in opinion by consulting with at least two or three before selecting one.

    THIS ANSWER IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY, DOES NOT CONSTITUTE LEGAL ADVICE, AND DOES NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP. Immigration is complicated and the wrong action can have serious consequences. Never take action in your case based solely on general information like is offered here. Speak to an attorney who can give you specific advice about your own situation.


  4. Whatever we charge is too little for what we are putting ourselves through with this one..

  5. in austin i would charge about $3,000 go see rick fernandez in dallas a great attorney.

    The advice that I give in each answer or legal is not intended to take the place of an in person consultation. A complete answer takes an in depth interview. After all, it is a life that is at stake. If you are in another city that I do not service ask me and I might be able to recommend you an attorney there. In general, in Houston, I recommend Adan Vega or Bruce Coane, Specialists. In Dallas I recommend Richard Fernandez or Yong Wood highly skilled and experienced.
