While there may be a wide range of free blogs offering advice on visas and immigration to the USA, relying on this information can be dangerous.

Beware of Free Visa Advice on Blogs

Sometimes clients come to us after speaking briefly with other immigration firms (aka "free consultation") or after reading blogs and various web sites and  therefore think that they already "know" what can or cannot  be done and they just want to know what "it" will cost. 

Many clients are  surprised to learn---after a "thorough" analysis and discussion with Mr. Yurkofsky --- that they had been misinformed or that the information they had "learned" is just plain "wrong" or incomplete.

Some clients may have been advised in a quick "free" consultation---that they had no options when in fact they had many options or vice versa.

Case Study: James' experience with free blogs and the E3 Visa for Australians

One client of ours - James - can in to trouble when trusting free advice on a blog when applying for his E3 visa. He has documented his E3 visa application story on his website.

One aspect of the process that James initially failed to recognize was that a visa denial can have detrimental effects on future visa applications. Luckily, James came to us after being denied for an E3 visa and we were able to help him with a second, proper application that eventually led to him successfully obtaining an E3 Visa.

Increasingly complex visa application process in the USA

The U.S. immigration process is extremely complex and the current political "environment" in regards to security and unemployment in the USA makes the process even more challenging to achieve our client's goals. A thorough analysis is a critical first step.

Letting our clients know the truth

We will always let our client's know what  we believe their chances are of "winning". We are very proud of our approval record which is over 99 percent, including some of the most "difficult" cases. 

We will not agree to move forward with a visa application if there is no realistic chance of "winning" your case.
