How often did you meet with your lawyer?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

It is very hard for me to take time off of work. I was just curious how many times (in your experience) you met with your lawyer. Thank you.

I'm fairly certain that that majority of people on these forums didn't go through a lawyer - we used the guides listed on this site. Anyone who did go through a lawyer did so because there were complications in their cases.

Read up on the guides provided here and see if you can do it yourself. There is a wealth of information not only in the guides but also from the community of members. It's not that difficult and if you have concerns or questions then 99% of the time someone here can answer them from personal experience.

Like the previous poster stated, most people do not need a lawyer for this process. Since our case was a little bit more complicated, we opted to use a lawyer. We met with her I think 5 times total - the consult, once to review and sign application, once to turn in and organize all the bona-fides, and twice to prepare for the interview itself. We only had to meet for the 2nd interview prep because of the specifics of our case, so I think they usually only do it once. Each visit was 30 min-1 hour long.

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
