GET STARTED

Fast, easy and guaranteed.

Legalpad has an extremely different process than law firms. I have friends working with different firms who receive no communication and lack of support from their legal teams. I've referred one of my friends to work with Legalpad, as I know they will help remove any worry about your immigration status in the United States.
