Just received PWD and my employer approved it. But I am considering getting a new lawyer, does that mean I need to re-process everything? What's the next step?
You can change lawyers at any time, but keep in mind, most employment based green card applications belong to the employer and they can choose their own lawyer.
It may not be necessary, unless the new attorney does not agree with the decisions or application thus far.
This response is general in nature and cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. Any comments offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship. You are encouraged to seek independent and private counseling for a complete review of your case.
No, your new employer will get the file from your present lawyer and continue with the application.
Please see below:
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals.
