Retaining an experienced immigration lawyer to complete your sponsorship application and represent you on the matter is a type of investment. One mistake or omission in an application package can result in the return of the entire package, the loss of a considerable amount of time, and the need to start from scratch. Indeed, if your application is returned to you for correction, your application is not held in a queue and it is as if you starting the application again from the beginning. Moreover, if an applicant or sponsor unintentionally provides an incorrect answer, this could result in the rejection of the sponsorship application.  So when considering whether to hire an immigration lawyer to do all the work for you, please keep in mind the potential risk to go it alone.
