AILA Doc. No. 08100662 | Dated December 21, 2012
AILA long has worked to ensure that immigrants are competently represented, so they are not forced to use the often-unscrupulous services of a local notario or unauthorized immigration consultant. To this end, AILA has created StopNotarioFraud.org, a comprehensive consumer website providing information and resources to immigrants to avoid being defrauded by a notario, and where to get help if they are harmed. Consumer protection information is available in English and en Español. Also newly launched in 2012 – view the website in Chinese and Polish!
Immigration laws and regulations are complex and challenging – don’t trust your status to a "notario." Don’t risk your dreams for your family. You need an attorney who knows immigration law. Whether you are a consumer of immigration services, or a lawyer who can help victims, visit StopNotarioFraud.org for more information.
