办绿卡的感受 系列

17. 从RIR,PERM深度探讨美国移民政策

本来今天和客户忙了一天,不想写东西,躺在床上,看打仗,结果还是忍不住,看来,不 仅仅吸毒(没吸过),看来写文章也上瘾,因为写东西的时候,是自己心灵的一次次坦白 。然后,特别能激励自己,鼓励自己。

因为有的客户反映EB讲的太多,LC讲的很少.我觉得我应该写写.因为我总觉得L/C的问 题 现在一般的律师事务所的模式不错,因为LC的办理要靠经验,和时间,智商没关系。特 别是你和网上著名的每年处理一两千个案子的“律师团队”做LC,除了价钱贵以外(要40 00刀到6000刀),问题不是很大。但是我从我的客户的谈话中了解到很多的关于LC存在的 误解和问题。我觉得大家对于LC的误解主要是由于几方面造成。

1。中文报纸,我觉得这是最大的问题。 特别是有一些“专家”发表的言论。我原来在世 界日报,星岛日报,中国日报有几个法律专栏。(如果你要是我的客户我可以给你MAIL个 COPY过去),我就负责写吓唬人的专栏。每天,不是”美国移民全面收紧“,就是”LAYO FF之后必须离境“。我觉得特别是中文报纸的东西最多信50%。如果有相关的法律,最好 到移民局的官方网站看比较保险或多看看英文的报纸,至少质量高一些(小弟在英文的报 纸上也写过专栏,不过不是关于法律的,关于中美文化和中美关系的).

2.网上的专家.我听的最多一句话就是,"我听人家说"怎么怎么, 在论坛上,有些是自己的 亲身经历,
有些是自己的想法,有些是在误导.毕竟在网上的人并不负任何的责任.LC以及移 民是非常个性化的问题,没有什么大师自己做了一次劳工证,就是包治百病的大师。如果 你非要是网上问,就多问几家,在用大脑分析分析。我有个客户连H-1的L/C和永久劳工证 的区别还没搞清楚,就张罗着DIY。我心想:也就是碰见我拉,换个别人,你准上当。我 最常说的一句话是:移民不是钱的事情,最忌讳冲动,一冲动就上当。如果有人和你说你 要是出了这个门,就没有这个价格,别理他,他一定是在骗你。


3。没经验的律师或专家。这种人是最害人的。我的客户和我说的一些经历,我都不相信 。看来我也是有幸开了眼:

Case1: My green card attorney already kept me waiting while having no progress at all since my first payment in July 2002! I gave her enough push and now I am going to fire her. I already set up an appointment to meet with a new attoney this saturday. But actually I am still not quite sure whether having a attoney is the best way to handle my green card case.

Case2: All the companies I worked said they would sponsor my GC. First one I had to contact the attorney through the secretary. Everytime I tried to let secretary ask the process,there would be a long time waiting. From the time I requested GC application till to my layoff, they even didn't file up the laber application, the time was more than 1 year.

The second company said they let the attorney who dealt my H-1B transfer do my GC application, and gave me same answer every time I asked them. But after several months I decided to call the attorney directly, found out he didn't even know he would do my GC. Then the company chose another attorney and let me deal with him directly. Everytime I tried to call him I couldn't reach him. No response to my messages too. At last I tried to call him everyday, and he called my back and shouted at me said I bothered him. I think he is the biggest jerkass I ever met. So one year passed I got laid off again, hadn't got the labor application filed just like before.

Then my wife got a job, she had to do GC herself. We chose a big firm in Boston, having more than 10 immigration attorneys. They are expensive. But they are doing somethings. We can reach them through phone, email(the two attorneys before didn't have email). They reply our request very fast, in general, they will reply the email within 30 minutes if the attorney is in the office, and the chief attorney told us we can call her directly if the assigned attorney is not available.

Since we first contacted them in the mid of October, they filed labor application at the end of October, approved by Department of Labor at the beginning of December. Then at the mid of Jan we filed I-140 and I-485. My wife has a colleague chose another attorney in Cambridge last September, right now her labor havn't been filed up yet. This attorney we called when we did our attorney shopping, his secretary said we had to arrange an appointment if we want to know the detail and the prices, and the attorney wouldn't discuss anything about our case before that........

我觉得在这点上,网上的几个著名律师很负责任,因为他们和我一样处理过上百个LC的案 子,知道是怎么回事,就是价钱贵了点,但是肯定是办事情。
