Hello! I would like to ask for advice, if I may. I am considering filing for a green card (I'm on a P1 visa at the moment). My immigration attorney wants around $5,000.00 to prepare the case – besides government filing fees and doctor fees. I can't afford that, so I’ve been entertaining the notion of filing it on my own. All forms are downloadable from uscis.gov, the kind of materials she would need I'll have to collect by myself anyway… If I tried filing on my own, I would only pay the government fees. Also I could do it in stages – first I-140, then I-485, then I-765 or I-131… I guess the question becomes – if my application was to be denied, would that complicate my P1 extension of stay renewal next year (or visa issuance if I should leave the country)? Are there any additional resources to help me file on my own? Or any other, more affordable options of getting professional help? Thank you!
