Avoid Immigration Scams

Many people offer help with immigration services. Unfortunately, not all are authorized to do so. While many of these unauthorized practitioners mean well, many of them are out to scam you. This is against the law and may be considered an immigration services scam. Learn more about avoiding immigration scams and how to protect yourself.

Filing Information

Follow the instructions on the form(s) that you are filing. If the instructions on the application tell you to file the form at a USCIS local office and you live within this service area, please mail your application or make an InfoPass appointment to submit your application in person.

Field Office Services

Field Offices handle a variety of functions, many of which you can complete online. We suggest you Ask Emma for more details about what you want to accomplish. Many times, you can complete your task via the Internet. For example, you can get Green Card help, Employment Authorization Documentation assistance, Adoptions or Citizenship information, or download forms.

Attorney or Representative Procedures

If you are an attorney seeking information, you must make an InfoPass appointment with the office that has jurisdiction over your client’s residential address. You must make a separate appointment for each client you wish to discuss. 

Becoming an Accredited Representative

If you are not an attorney and wish to provide the public with immigration services, you must be authorized by the Department of Justice (DOJ)'s Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). More information is available on how an organization can apply for recognition and accreditation at the District Office.
