UNAUTHORIZED PRACTICE OF LAW
NOTARIOS AND IMMIGRATION CONSULTANTS
 
In the United States’ complex immigration legal system, “Notarios” or “Immigration Consultants” have become an increasingly serious problem in immigrant communities.  Notarios operate throughout the U.S. and use false advertising and fraudulent contracts for services which cannot be provided. Notarios present themselves as qualified to help immigrants obtain lawful immigration status, and may charge a lot of money for help that they never provide. Notarios cannot even legally inform you which form to use. Often, immigrants’ permanently lose opportunities to pursue immigration relief because a notario has damaged their case.  The ABA-Commission is working to provide immigrant communities with information about this dangerous practice, and to support advocates who represent immigrants who have been defrauded. 
 
En el sistema legal de inmigración en los Estados Unidos los “Notarios” o “Consultores de Inmigración” son un problema muy serio para las comunidades inmigrantes.  Los notarios operan por todos los Estados Unidos y utilizan anuncios falsos y contratos fraudulentos para servicios que no pueden proporcionar.  Los notarios se presentan como si fueran autorizados a ayudar a los inmigrantes obtener estatus legal y a veces cobran mucho dinero para servicios que nunca proporcionan. Muchas veces, los inmigrantes pierden para siempre la oportunidad de pedir alivio migratorio porque un notario ha perjudicado a su caso.  La ABA-Comisión está trabajando para proporcionar información sobre esta práctica peligrosa a las comunidades inmigrantes, y para apoyar las defensoras que representan a las víctimas.
