My boyfriend was deported to mexico from the United States on May2011. He got a lawyer & has a receipt # for the Vawa and U-visa. They both where received October 2011. It's going to to be almost a year since his deportation but only 5 months since the applications. It's been very hard for me. Im getting worse with my finances & health. I am all he has... Can we expedite the Vawa or U-Visa on behalf of my situation? Im the one helping him with his lawyer fees & supporting him. I'm a USA Citizen & i dropped out of college and have depression. I want to be a Vet but with all this happening, my whole future has changed. I been with my bf for almost 6yrs. I love him so much but im willing to do anything for him. Im just getting impatient and very sick. im willing to quit my job as a vet tech
I can certainly empathize with what you are going through as your situation must be very difficult. It appears your partner has representation but given privacy issues, you may not be privy to issues or communications going on in the case. It may be more beneficial to have your partner discuss any options for expediting his case with his attorney. If there are issues you feel the attorney is not addressing, it may be helpful to seek out a second opinion, but bear in mind that the attorney would need to see the case file before properly advising you of the options.
You have an attorney. He/she knows the facts of your case. We do not. You need to ask your questions from your attorney.
You are essentially asking us to second guess your attorney without having all the facts. No competent attorney is going to do that.
You certainly are entitled to a second opinion. However, rendering a second opinion requires an analysis of all the facts, including any filings by your present attorney. That is not something that can be done for free through Avvo. You would need to retain an attorney for the purpose of giving you that second opinion.
