Attorney Agreement

Last Update: June 1, 2020

Limited Scope Representation Agreement

This Limited Scope Representation Agreement (“Attorney Agreement”) governs your relationship with the immigration attorney (“Attorney”) who will i) review your immigration documents before they are delivered to you by DYgreencard Inc. (“DYgreencard”); ii) render you legal consultation service if you purchase the Consult Lawyer Service through DYgreencard website. Your relationship with DYgreencard is governed by the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

As part of its Services, DYgreencard has made arrangements with immigration attorneys to i) perform a limited review of immigration documents before they are delivered to DYgreencard customers; ii) provide legal consultation service. These attorneys are independent practitioners. They will exercise their independent judgment as attorneys, without influence or control by DYgreencard.

By agreeing to have an attorney review your immigration documents or conduct legal consultation with you, you and the Attorney enter into a limited attorney-client relationship. The Attorney agrees to i) conduct a basic review of the immigration documents you have completed using the DYgreencard website, or that you provide directly to the Attorney; ii) render you legal consultation service if you purchase the Consult Lawyer Service through DYgreencard website. The Attorney agrees to provide, for a flat fee clearly disclosed to you prior to payment, the following services:

  • Reviewing the forms you have completed for errors, omissions and consistency, and reviewing the supporting documents for completeness and consistency with the forms prior to filing.
  • Answering questions about the forms and supporting documents that you have submitted for the Attorney’s review.
  • Rendering you legal consultation service if you purchase the Consult Lawyer Service through DYgreencard website.

Upon the Attorney’s receipt of all or any portion of the flat fee, the funds are the property of the Attorney and will not be placed in a trust account. The fact that you have paid your fee in advance does not affect your right to terminate the attorney-client relationship. In the event that your relationship with the Attorney is terminated before the agreed upon legal services above have been completed, you may or may not have a right to a refund of a portion of the fee. In addition to the flat fee, the Attorney may also be compensated an additional amount by DYgreencard to ensure sufficient attorney time and resources will be available to serve DYgreencard’ customers. You are not responsible for, and will not be charged, any such additional amount paid by DYgreencard to the Attorney. DYgreencard will not interfere with the Attorney’s independence of professional judgment or with the attorney-client relationship.

The Attorney must act in your best interest and give you competent assistance. However, the Attorney’s representation of you is limited to i) this basic review of documents described above; or ii) legal consultation service if applicable, and no more. The Attorney will not perform any additional legal work for you, such as filing your documents or representing you in any proceeding before any court or government agency, including United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

You specifically agree that:

  • The Attorney is relying entirely on the facts, information and documents you provide. The Attorney will not make any independent investigation of your facts or information, or the authenticity of any documents you provide. It is therefore extremely important that you are completely truthful as to any information you provide.
  • The Attorney is not promising you a favorable result.
  • The Attorney is not required to help you with any other part of your immigration needs or any other legal questions or problems you may have.
  • The Attorney’s representation of you ends when DYgreencard delivers your documents to you or when the Attorney advises against filing the immigration documents you selected; or ends when the Attorney completes the legal consultation with you.
