“Many people are unaware of the complexity of their own situation and often find themselves on the internet searching for answers. Often times, this leads them to be more confused than they already were and they enter a situation where they are acting incorrectly and making critical errors because they don’t know the law or the regulations or the policies attached to immigration forms.”
