Default Anybody Ever Hear This?????

I found this on a legal firm's website. I don't think the facts bear this out and it is a scare tactic to get people to use their service. Comments???? Can they really say this legally? I'm tempted to ask them what "sources" they are referencing...

Although our office has a high success rate, we have been informed by other sources that AN AVERAGE OF 20-50% OF THE GENERAL POPULATION’S VISAS ARE NOT GRANTED. The non approvals usually occur at the U.S. Embassy and tend to be higher for developing countries.

Oh, the paragraph starts with

"The K1 visa is the most effective method for bringing an alien fiancée to the United States."

Well, there's a no-brainer......

I chalk that up to salesmanship. I’ve seen that on sites too, and I don’t believe it for one second in the fiancée visa context. For fiancée cases, it more a question of “when� it will be approved and not “if� it will be approved. I also have read sites that underestimate the time it will take (they say 90 days from petition submission to visa issuance, or some similar low-ball time frame). Again, salesmanship. I personally like to give “my� clients a realistic estimate. It’s better to deal with a client who has realistic expectations.

What you quoted sounds like something I once read on an attorneys site who happens to share the same name as a famous male porno star.

Correct, but after reading your post I realize that I had the actor's first name incorrect in my memory. Guess I'm a little rusty on my expired famous male porno actor trivia.

And all this time, I thought that attorney had the exact same name. Guess that explains why he never changed his name (I might consider it if I had been named John Holmes).

It is my experience that many of the website that I visted during my K1 process remain grossly outdated. Many out there still claim K1 only takes 30-60 days. I would be reluctant to do business or even take advice from any website that is not updated on at least a bi-monthly basis. Three nice things about these forums:

You generaly deal with people who are going through a simaliar situation as you in the present.

There are several people who deal with the legal side of immigration on a day to day basis and despite our good friend "Booger" thinking that they, "Are a WASTE of money", such immigration attornies can be invaluable.

No one is trying to pitch you are sell anything based on BS sales pitches like the one listed.
