looking for lawyers and organizations to help me start the paperwork to bring my husband here, im a citizen if u.s, i found some places online mostly called rapidvisa, they are acredited by the BBB, but are they as good as actual lawyers? or are they scams?
Lawyer's are licensed professionals who must not only abide by the laws, they must also abide by the rules of their state's licensing agency. These agencies have methods by which upset consumers can complain and file fee disputes and hold the attorneys accountable. The groups you are speaking of are nameless and faceless and may not even be headquartered in the US. Think of it terms of a doctor would you go to a licensed surgeon or an online group called www.rapidsurgery.com.
Stay away from websites that don't have a 'real' US-licensed attorney working on your case.

PS Businesses are not 'acredited' by the BBB ... they merely haven't had any complaints ... there is a big difference.
Be SERIOUSLY careful of the things you read online. Websites like the one you mentioned, along with online forums, can give you wrong information. This is not a situation where you want to do the wrong thing, as there can be life-long consequences.
Being accredited by the BBB is not a very good indicator of a business' legitimacy, either.
