I don`t like the lawyer 3:03 am today
Read 11 Times
So, I am facing a dilemma and would like your input. I am planning to file for the CR1. Fiance`s family is footing the bill and we will repay after his arrival in US. They want me to go with the family lawyer but when I met up with the lawyer he wasn't very nice. He wouldn't answer basic questions such as 'After I give you the paperwork for you to organize, will you send the petition off or will I send it off?" He replies "Who will I send it off to?" I replied 'I don't know. Not sure." (Because I genuinely do not know who sends it off, I ask as a potential client) I ask again a few minutes later and he responds "Why do you need a lawyer?" I take a breath because I am irritated at this entire situation, I don't like lawyers and do not feel like I need one. I'm only here because the family is paying for him. I look at the aunt(who recommended him) and say "You were recommended to me." He then says "You don't have to follow through with any recommendation." I nod in agreement.
Out of fairness to him, it was a free 15 minute consultation when he normally charges $300 / hour but since I am now a 'friend of the family' he met up with me. He has not been hired as my attorney as of yet.
Not only did he not answer my questions but he was condescending. I do not like this man. But the fact is he has helped two family members with immigration.
I'm also positive that when I explain my thoughts to the family they aren't going to listen and be loyal to the lawyer particularly because they share nationality and he has helped two family members, the earliest being this past fall.
What can this lawyer do for me? No idea since he didn't sell himself to me nor answer my questions.

Wondering if anyone out there in Dallas, TX are having the same issue as us. Wel filed back on April, 2017 for my husband AOS. We got a confirmation few days after on April 30th & May 3rd! Within two months we got the biometric appointment(June 2017) but now we are on February 2018 and still no sign for the interview. On their website it says ready for an interview since September 06,2017
Did anyone file around this time? If so, how is it going for you?
*we did not hired a lawyer, file everything by ourselves!
