Tips for getting immigration help.
Scammers can rob you of money — and your chance to immigrate.
Ads from notarios say they can help you with immigration. But, in the U.S., notarios are not authorized to help you. Only an immigration lawyer or an authorized representative can help you with immigration.
The signs are in store windows. Ads are in newspapers and online – for people called notarios. They promise to help you with immigration issues, but they are not the help you need. In the U.S., notarios are not lawyers, and they’re not authorized by the government to help you with immigration. Often, they take your money but don’t file your papers. Or, they use the wrong forms and hurt your chance to immigrate. Avoid notarios and avoid a scam. Find out more at ftc.gov/immigration. That’s f-t-c dot g-o-v slash immigration.
