Do I need to see an immigration lawyer?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Sicklerville, NJ

My dad filed a I130 petition for my brother year 2004. My dad was still a green card holder back then. However, my dad became a citizen few months ago this year (2012) . Was wondering if we need to see a lawyer about this or just wait for the process? What can we do?

    Answered . Yes, you should schedule a consultation. In your situation, and depending which country your brother is from, it may or may not be advisable to remain in the same preference category. So for these reasons, you are much better of speaking with the experienced immigration attorney who could advise you properly.
