Immigration Attorneys

There are certain issues that are beyond the scope of ISSS. In these cases, ISSS can lend you general support and advice, but you will also need to seek the help of an attorney to properly handle your legal situation.

When to Seek the Help of an Attorney

  1. Removal Proceedings
  2. Permanent Residency not sponsored by Vanderbilt (based on marriage to a U.S. citizen, for example.)
  3. Divorce

Beware of Attorneys who:

  1. Who have little or no experience with students and scholars
  2. Offer a guaranteed result or offer to charge you only if they are successful
  3. Will not agree to a “flat fee” (unless your case is unusual or complex)
  4. Are unusually cheap or promise results different from other lawyers you consult
  5. Who ask you to sign things that are not true, or without reading them first
  6. Who don’t call you back or don’t send you copies of their work on your behalf
