Insider TRUTH About the Visa and Immigration Process MYTH People think that Visa applications are a relatively simple process. They think they will either do it themselves, or find the cheapest lawyer because it’s all the same. MISTAKES People needing visas find out that the Visa system is an impossible labyrinth, that it is easy to make errors and give wrong evidence, and that once they sign with a lawyer, most have their own agendas you didn’t know about, hidden costs, they do not keep you informed, treat you as a ‘number’, may create only a ‘fair’ application and ignore your needs. The stakes are high! Denials are more likely the second time around, and appeals of denials are expensive and can take years. A quick, careless work permit application---even if successful---can jeopardize permanent residency later. Delays resulting from careless applications can make things more complicated and expensive. It costs more to fix a problem than to prevent one! CONSEQUENCES So people badly in need of visas often experience hellish, highly stressful situations, and consequences. The visa process costs them much more in the long run, they feel alone, lost, frustrated or angry by wasting precious time and money being ignored by their lawyers who do not follow up on their initial promises. For those trying to do it on their own, they suffer anxiety by conflicting, often out-of-date information online, and feel highly stressed and fearful that their errors cost them delay or they even destroy their chance of getting a visa. Visas and immigration can be key to the survival of your company, your choice of life-long profession and the future of your family. The long term consequences can include you not having the opportunity to change your life, to live your dreams or to better your family’s situation. ENJOY WITH RELISLAW a happy experience, feeling calm and well-cared for throughout. You find the whole system so much easier. You receive the best result possible because as a specialist firm, we have access to daily crucial changes in the law and government policy or practice that are often secret or hard to find, often using this crucial new information to your advantage. Your problems are resolved in the best possible way. With the visa you were dreaming of, you are free to pursue your dreams and many opportunities. You can earn well. You can enjoy quality of life with your family nearby or within easy reach, as you can travel in an out without worry. At RelisLaw PLLC, we do things differently. Your situation and your needs are our prime focus, to provide you with a most positive experience in the processing of your case. Your case will be vigorously pursued through every available avenue to enable you to enjoy the vast array of opportunities the USA has to offer.

Peter S.

We hired Dr. Relis and her team to assist with our marriage-based green card application. We approached several law firms initially but after an initial virtual meeting with Dr. Relis, during which she took a lot of time to explain all the relevant steps and laws, we decided to proceed with RelisLaw. We felt well cared for by everyone on the team throughout the process. The document preparation was time-consuming and required a lot of back and forth, but we could not have done it without the support of the RelisLaw team. Our application is now submitted to the government and we still have a long way to go before everything is done, but we feel relieved to know that we submitted the best possible application thanks to Dr. Relis and her team. RelisLaw stands out for their knowledge and expertise, but also for their customer-centered approach. We got comprehensive and fast advise whenever we needed it, whether related to our petition or other immigration questions. We highly recommend Dr. Relis and her team without reservations.

Dr. Tamara Relis and her team helped us to with all the papers since we got married to get my temporary 2-years GC and recently with renewing the green card. She is professional, she truly cares about her clients success and overall we had an excellent experience. Dealing with Immigration can be stressing and scary but she assured us she will help us all the way to get it sorted. Highly recommend for anyone that needs immigration support.

My husband and I had an excellent experience working with Dr. Relis and her team. She met with us via Skype or phone call any time that we needed clarification on our case. She was very knowledgeable about the laws pertaining to our situation and the procedures that we would have to follow. She clearly explained all of the steps we would have to go through and helped us gather the necessary evidence to win our 601-A waiver. We are so grateful to have found Dr. Relis and her team. We highly recommend her to anybody who needs legal help with an immigration case!

My partner and I were in search of a law firm to help with our immigration process and came across Dr. Relis. Upon meeting we both felt we wanted her to represent us. She was direct, professional, honest and credible, making us feeling extremely comfortable in every way. We are still in the process but with these trying times in the world they are there working day and night for us. Dr. Relis, and her team along with Coby and Marie get 5 stars!!!
