Please contact GCI and schedule a consultation. In preparing for the consultation, it is helpful to compile useful documentation. This will make the consultation a more effective meeting, as we will be able to fully understand and analyze your case. Please bring to the consultation all immigration documentation which may include permanent resident cards, passports, work permits, correspondence from the Department of Homeland Security, parole cards, applications, etc.
If you are or have been in removal proceedings before the Immigration Court, please bring the Notice to Appear (NTA), which is the immigration-charging document.
If a family member's immigration status is relevant to your case, please bring the family member's documents such as a spouse or parent's certificate of citizenship or resident card.
If you have a criminal record, it is extremely important to bring all arrest reports, charging documents, and dispositions. An arrest report or criminal complaint is prepared by the arresting officer. A charging document is an "Information" or "Indictment". It is prepared by the state attorney, district attorney, or U.S. attorney's office. The disposition is the final judgment, dismissal, jury verdict, etc. This will be issued by the court itself. Please bring all criminal records, even if the case was of a minor nature or dismissed. It is best if you go to the clerk of the court where your case was heard, and obtain certified copies of these documents before the appointment with Ms. Kim. Plea agreements and transcripts are also useful, if you have them.
All cases are entitled to confidentiality. Please note there is a consultation fee, which may be credited to any fee agreed upon for the work performed in your case(s). The consultation fee is for the attorney’s time and expertise to thoroughly analyze your immigration case, an area of law where there are rarely simple answers.
