K1 Visa Consultation Case Review - Assistance For The Do-It-Yourselfer

If you don’t want full service representation but you would like me to look over your case before it is submitted to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), I also offer “K-1 Consultation Case Review For The Do-It-Yourselfer”.

In doing this work I’ve never failed to spot serious mistakes made on the forms, errors in the type of evidence used to substantiate the case, beginner mistakes and unwarranted assumptions being made by the petitioner about case processing and how the system works, etc.

• I will examine your self-prepared I-129f submission in order to:
• Spot any “Red-Flag” issues that may be present in your case and give you an opinion about the best way to minimize or eliminate the potential problem.
• Spot errors you made on the forms.
• Suggest how to best organize - format your submission.
• Evaluate the evidence you intend to submit with your case and offer suggestions to help you achieve a “well documented” submission while at the same time avoid engaging in “overkill”.
• Give information and tips to the petitioner which will help the case move through the system as quickly as possible by avoiding beginner mistakes and reducing the odds of the case receiving an RFE (A case will experience a delay if a Request For Additional Evidence is received).
• Answer questions the petitioner has about the K-1 fiancée visa and Consular process.
• Discuss things you should be doing now which will eventually come in handy once your fiancée enters the USA, marries you and files an application for conditional permanent resident status.

The K-1 Consultation Case Review For The Do-It-Yourselfer service compared to Full Service Legal Representation:
When I provide full service legal representation in a client’s immigration case, I submit a G-28 form with the case. That puts the USCIS and Consulate on notice that I am the client’s attorney of record.

As the attorney of record; when the USCIS sends out receipt and approval notices, I receive “Attorney Copies” which I then send to my client. That means my client will receive this important correspondence even if the notices sent directly from the USCIS to the client become lost in the mail for whatever reason. That provides a nice “safety net” to ensure the client always receives the “I-129f Approval Notice” which is an important document that must later be submitted when your fiancée (then spouse) eventually applies for permanent resident status.

But most importantly, having an attorney of record with your case means your attorney can contact the USCIS and Consulate to resolve mistakes they make along the way. I believe quickly fighting for a client to resolve USCIS and Consulate mistakes is the most important thing an immigration attorney brings to a case and if a petitioner has an attorney of record, the USCIS and Consulate will listen to the attorney and reply to the attorney’s concerns about the case.

When providing my K-1 Consultation Case Review For The Do-It-Yourselfer service prior to the case being submitted to the USCIS, a G-28 will not be submitted with your case, the USCIS will not consider me as your attorney of record and I would be unable to contact the USCIS or Consulate on your behalf in order to try to resolve USCIS and/or Consulate mistakes.

Attorney Fee:
The K-1 Consultation Case Review For The Do-It-Yourselfer service typically takes approximately two hours to review the submission and to have a detailed discussion with the caller. I charge $500.00 to perform this service, which covers up to two hours of time. I am not charging by the hour and instead this is a flat-rate fee of $500.00 for up to two hours of time performing this service. The fee remains the same even if the performance of this service takes less than two hours and the service terminates upon the completion of one telephonic detailed discussion with the caller.

Note About Cases Requiring A Waiver For Criminal Or Unlawful Presence Issues:
Please do not contact me to perform the K-1 Consultation Case Review For The Do-It-Yourselfer if your foreign fiancée has criminal issues present in his or her background which requires the submission of a waiver or if your fiancée is subject to the three or ten year ban from the United States for accruing over 180 days of continuous unlawful presence in the United States. Waivers for criminal issues and unlawful presence issues are too complicated for this type of case review service and will take more than the two hours of allotted time. If your fiancée does have criminal or unlawful presence issues in his or her background that trigger the submission of a waiver, you should instead seek full service legal representation for your important case.
