When should I get a lawyer?

Here are some examples of when you may want to get a lawyer. These examples come from the American Bar Association, a national organization that helps people with legal situations:

  • If you are detained by the police at the airport at another location
  • If you are discriminated against
  • If you are arrested by the police
  • If you are given official papers for a lawsuit
  • If you are in a big accident where you are physically hurt or where you or someone else’s property is ruined
  • If you have a big family event or change such as a divorce, adoption, or death (However, most of the time you do not need a lawyer to get married.)
  • If you have to file bankruptcy because you do not have any money to pay your debt

Interpretation in legal settings

Under US law, if you are seeking help or required to cooperate with a government agency or an organization funded by the government, you must be provided with language help. If you do not speak English well, you can receive interpreter for the following services:

  • Federal courts
  • State and local courts that receive money from the US government
  • Federal agencies such as the Social Security Administration and US Citizenship and Immigration Service
  • State and local government agencies that receive money from the US government such as your local social services, welfare office, or unemployment office
  • Legal services offices that receive money from the Legal Services Corporation or another agency of the US government to provide free legal services
  • Police departments that receive money from the US government
  • Hospitals that receive money from the US government
  • Schools that receive money from the US government

If you are in immigration court, you must get help only from a licensed attorney or accredited representative. It is very important that you get immigration help only from organizations or individuals approved by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). If you ask your friends or family for help, they might accidentally tell you incorrect information that could get you in trouble with immigration services.

If you need legal help for immigration, you can find low-cost attorneys and legal help. If you are using an online website to find legal forms, make sure you are using the official United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website.
