Successfully navigating the immigration system requires the guidance of a skilled immigration attorney who has an in-depth understanding of the most recent changes to the law. Unfortunately, there is no shortage of scams out there targeting those who are desperate and uninformed. The Law Office of Carmen DiAmore-Siah, one of Honolulu's leading immigration attorneys, encourages everyone to be wary of these financial predators.
Many immigration scams exhibit similar signs, such as:
- Unrealistic Promises: Almost no honest attorney will promise a certain outcome for your case, but someone less scrupulous will not hesitate to guarantee a certain result. They may promise to get your visa immediately, for example, or describe other outcomes that aren't really possible.
- Escalating Fees: Most of the costs associated with applying for a visa aren't flexible, so your attorney’s prices shouldn't change unexpectedly. If the attorney you've hired continuously asks for more money, check with the United States Customs and Immigration Services to ensure the costs are warranted.
- Bad Advice: Some scam artists will recommend that you simply purchase a plane ticket without applying for a visa. Unfortunately, this is almost always a sign of a scam, so be sure to ask for a second opinion if your attorney suggests that your visa is guaranteed.
