Notarios, Visa Consultants, and Immigration Consultants Are Not Attorneys

leave a comment »

Notarios, Visa Consultants, and Immigration Consultants are not Attorneys and therefore cannot represent you in immigration court or provide legal services or for that matter give legal advice.

Bonded immigration consultants in California can translate information, get copies, and file forms.

If you are seeking immigration help please note that only licensed attorneys and “accredited representatives” can represent you in immigration court, can provide legal services, and can give legal advice.

To avoid being a victim of Immigration Fraud:

  • DO NOT sign applications or other papers that are blank.
  • DO NOT sign applications or other papers that you do not understand.
  • DO NOT sign applications or other papers that have false information.
  • DO NOT pay money without getting a receipt, and be careful when people ask you to pay a lot of money for immigration help.
  • DO get copies of all applications or other papers prepared or filed for you.
  • DO check that an attorney or “accredited representative” can represent you in immigration court.
  • DO report complaints about notarios, visa consultants, and immigration consultants to the U.S. Department of Justice.
