•  Warning on Lawyers and Notarios

“We have been hearing stories all around the country about people taking advantage of the immigrant community. They call themselves lawyers, advocates, or notarios. They advertise their services to ‘help’ young immigrants apply for deferred action under the new Obama policy and charge hundreds or thousands of dollars.”

BEFORE YOU SEEK LEGAL HELP, please read United We Dream’s warning about notarios and lawyers who run immigration scams — who promise help they can’t provide.
