USCIS Fact Sheet on National Initiative to Combat Immigration Services Scams: The wrong help can hurt.

USCIS fact sheet on the national, multi-agency initiative to combat immigration scams involving the unauthorized practice of immigration law that was launched by DHS, DOJ, and the FTC on 6/9/11.

Many people offer help with immigration services. Unfortunately, not all are authorized to do so. While many of these unauthorized practitioners mean well, all too many of them are out to rip you off. This is against the law and may be considered an immigration service scam.

If you need help filing an application or petition with USCIS, be sure to seek assistance from the right place, and from people that are authorized to help. Going to the wrong place can:
  • Delay your application or petition
  • Cost you unncessary fees
  • Possibly lead to removal proceedings
