an immigration lawyer has botched my file and USCIS refused the visa shall. This lawyer has written me have a plan B !?
I found this abnormal so I wrote to the USCIS to request information, USCIS confirms to me that there no plan B and asks me the contact details of this lawyer, it seems that the deal goes go further.
What do you think?
Hi Carl, M.Mayorkas of the USCIS wrote me: subsequent developments cannot retroactively establish eligibility as of the filing date. A petitioner may not make material changes to a petition in an effort to make a deficient petition conform to USCIS requirements.The evidence submitted in support of the motion will not be considered as because it constitutes a material change to the petitioner's corporate structure that occurred after the petition was filed on April 24, 2012. will not be considered, the decision to deny the petition will remain unchanged. Addendum II and proxy not conform... His answer leaves no doubt no "plan B" with the USCIS. Other lawyer are telling me that it is a professional misconduct of a the lawyer than proposing a "plan B" to the client just for continue to get paid, my case was botched the lawyer had no skills required for my case.
How do you know that It was the lawyer who "botched" your case, and not USCIS CSC? I would be careful in making such sweeping conclusions. A Plan B" can come to mean many different options that the attorney may have wanted to propose when realizing that CSC was wrong and unreasonable. Many US Immigration attorneys offer clients several options in complex cases when receive unreasonable CSC denials, especially in work visas. Your lawyer acted responsibly.
