A lot of people have misunderstandings about the purpose of free legal consultations with an immigration attorney. The purpose of a free legal consultation with an immigration lawyer is not for a lawyer to answer questions about how to prepare legal forms (i.e., naturalization and adjustment of status) on your own. The purpose of a free legal consultation is for a lawyer to meet a potential client to discuss the need of hiring a lawyer and what the lawyer can do for the potential client, as well as the cost of the lawyer’s services. If you are not looking to hire an attorney, you should not be scheduling a free consultation with an attorney.
Dealing with immigration issues is extremely difficult. I do not advise people to prepare immigration papers on their own. The fact that someone who is trying to prepare their papers on their own needs someone to answer questions is a sign that they do not know what they are doing and need to hire a immigration lawyer.
