There are a few different paths to having your family-based immigration needs met. One choice that people often opt for is hiring an immigration attorney. But, unless your case is complicated, such as you have convictions or need a waiver, most attorneys will cost 5 to 10 times more than RapidVisa Legal and take significantly longer to process and review your petition.
We understand you have to do your homework. This is important. But don’t be taken advantage of. Do your research. Many of our customers first went to a traditional law firm but after thousands of dollars and no results, contact us in the middle of the process and kick themselves for not using us sooner.
There are a few websites out there that are lead generators for lawyers, so of course, if you ask a question like “Should I use RapidVisa or should I use a lawyer?" they’ll be biased. Oftentimes they try to lump us in with scammy sites that illegally sell forms or don’t know what they’re doing.
We’ve gathered some comments from some of these lawyers, and paraphrased them to keep the commenters anonymous out of respect.
Let’s debunk some of these concerns.
1. “You should never trust someone who is not an attorney to manage your legal matters. That’s like trusting somebody who is not a doctor for medical issues.”
Petitioning for a family is a benefit request from your government. That said, if you have legal issues that could complicate your situation, you definitely should get legal counsel. RapidVisa legal can help you determine if this is the best path for you.
RapidVisa Legal is a non-traditional law firm, and does not offer legal advice or representation. Here’s what we do offer. Some lawyers have accused us of unauthorized practice of immigration law, or “UPIL”. RapidVisa and its software has been investigated and cleared by both the Department of Homeland Security and the Colorado Supreme Court. We offer a service similar to TurboTax for visa applications. Here’s news coverage of our company being investigated and cleared by the Colorado Supreme Court.
2. “An attorney can significantly improve your chances for approval. Every year, approximately 40-60% of fiancée visa petitions filed are not approved.”
This is false. The overall K-1 visa approval rate is around 80% according to NVC statistics. RapidVisa has a 99.97% success rate, which means you're nearly 50X more likely to be rejected without a service like ours.
3. “As an attorney, we do dozens of cases a year and therefore we are the most experienced option to go with.”
If your value proposition is that you are the most experienced because you have handled the most cases, then RapidVisa wins. We have over 70,000 approvals at over 99.7% approval rating. We have dozens of experienced representatives and an in-house law firm to help with these petitions every day.
Over more than a decade, we have helped thousands of families, not dozens.
While lawyers definitely have their place, they are not necessary or feasible in most basic, clear-cut immigration benefit requests. If you have no legal issues or concerns, and you’re going by the book, RapidVisa is a clear choice.
