SOFTWARE AND MATERIALS ON OUR WEBSITE ARE NOT LEGAL ADVICE
LegalResident.com LLC is not a law firm and does not provide legal services. Our Site provides an online portal to give visitors a general understanding of marriage-based immigration, software and educational materials to prepare legal documents.
At no time do we review your answers for legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide legal advice, opinions or recommendations about your legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms, or strategies, or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation. LegalResident.com LLC, the Site and our Services are not a substitute for the advice or services of an attorney.
Attorneys are trained in the law and can help prevent a case from being denied, the immigrant from being deported and either party to the case from inadvertent self-incrimination. Attorneys do this through careful case preparation, filing an entry of appearance and communicating with government agencies on behalf of their clients. You are voluntarily assuming several risks if you do not hire a privately retained attorney to provide full-scope legal services.
USERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCURACY OF IMMIGRATION FORMS
Our Site does not produce immigration forms that are 100% percent correct or complete, and immigration forms generated by the Site are populated with several default settings (or assumed answers appropriate for the majority of cases but not based on user input). Click here to view the default settings and learn why we use them. The forms can be edited post download to fit your particular needs.
YOU AGREE TO READ THE FINAL IMMIGRATION FORMS BEFORE SIGNING THEM AND AGREE TO BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCURACY OF THE FORMS IF YOU HAVE NOT HIRED AN ATTORNEY.
While we promptly update the immigration forms as new editions are published by the government, users and their attorneys (if any) must check the form edition is valid as of the time of filing, not the date of download.
We make no representations about the suitability, reliability, availability or accuracy of the software, products, technical Services or immigration forms produced on this Site. To the maximum extent permitted by law, all are provided “as is” without warranty of any kind. We hereby disclaim all warranties express or implied, including implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement, with respect to our Site and our Services.
INDEPENDENT ATTORNEY ADVERTISING AND INTEGRATION
One or more attorneys or law firms may from time to time advertise on our Site and integrate with our site in connection with the delivery of legal services. However, each attorney or law firm acts independently from us. We make no representation with respect to the quality or sufficiency of legal services they provide.
An attorney-client relationship can only be established pursuant to an agreement made directly with the individual attorney or law firm.
