WARNING

Beware of immigration scams! Immigration consultants and "notarios" are not lawyers. Learn about Immigration Scams.

Immigration law is very complex. Hire a licensed lawyer or accredited representative to help with an immigration case.

Is your lawyer licensed in California?
Is your representative accredited?
