It appears that some “notarios” are already looking to capitalize on the recent news about deferred action. Stop Notario Fraud, a service of the American Immigration Lawyers Association has information right on their homepage about some ways to protect yourselves from notaries promising things that they cannot deliver.
Some key points are:
- Deferred action does not grant legal status
- Deferred action is not amnesty
- Notarios or immigration consultants are not attorneys and cannot provide legal advice.
- The application process has not begun and there is nothing a notario can do for you at the moment.
It is always better to consult with an attorney. Call the Law Offices of Omar Gastelum & Associates to see how we can help you with all of your immigration needs.
