No Choice But to Approve Your Case

Spread the love

We want lots and lots and lots of evidence. Hi, I'm Jim Hacking, Immigration Lawyer practicing law throughout the United States at our offices in St. Louis, San Diego and Washington DC. We don't want a little bit of evidence. We don't want a few documents. We don't want a picture or two. We don't want you to give us the bare minimum. Here's a bank statement or two. We want lots of evidence, lots and lots and lots of evidence. And when I say we, I mean the immigration service, but I also mean Hacking Immigration Law. We want to send in a stellar packet.

One of the things that I'm really proud about is that we've developed a reputation at least here in St. Louis of putting together our cases properly and of really documenting the strength and the devotion of our cases. We want to make sure that the officers are overwhelmed with evidence, that there can be no doubt that this is a valid marriage. You know, it's absolutely impossible to prove a marriage just through documents. But that doesn't mean that you still should not do everything you can to give them lots and lots and lots of evidence.

Now, if you want to get a copy of our marital evidence list, I'm happy to send it to you. We're going to create a landing page for that. We haven't yet. But if you send an email to [email protected] and just say, "Marriage evidence list" in the title, we'll go ahead and send that to you. Or you can just leave us a comment down below and we will leave that for you.

So once you have that list and we've done everything we can to be as creative as possible to create that list so that you have what you need to gather, you have a list of all the kinds of things that you can gather, things that you probably haven't thought about like Amazon purchases that come to the house, or Netflix subscriptions, or we really try to use technology and the documentation of life in the 21st century to show what we need to show that this is a valid marriage.

So we don't want to give them just a little bit. We want to overwhelm them with stuff. So we're going to send in the forms themselves. And then we're going to send in properly organized and categorize evidence because this thing that we see sometimes from immigrants where they say, "Yeah, we just don't really have a lot. Yeah, sorry about that," yeah, that's not going to fly, not going to fly with us, not going to fly with immigration. You have to remember, they want to deny your case. They want to deny your case. Can I deny this case? I'm sure as hell going to try. So we have to beat that back. We have to literally push back with documents, with evidence, with lots of it. So those of you who watch my channel, who come to our live show, you know these things that I say. We want lots and lots and lots of evidence. So get it together.

If you need our help, putting your case together, give us a call 314-961-8200. Email us [email protected] Be sure to join us in our Facebook group, which is called Immigrant Home. We'd love to see in there. We have about 6,000 people in there, answering and talking about immigration every day. And then of course, we have our YouTube channel where we have hundreds of videos and we're adding to them every day. We'd love to see you in there, subscribing to the channel, sharing it out on social. And then don't forget, on most Tuesdays and Thursdays at Noon Central, you'll find me in our Facebook group and on the YouTube channel answering as many of your immigration law related questions as possible in just under 60 minutes. Thanks a lot and have a great day.
