How to hire a North Bergen Immigration Lawyer
When it comes to filing for any immigration benefits there is a substantial amount of paperwork involved. It would seem that everyone would hire a lawyer to process an immigration case, but that is not what always happens. In many places such as North Bergen, New Jersey, there is a teeming "quasi" underground business of immigration forms preparation. In may instances, these business call themselves immigration consultants or Notario Publicos, and some even hide under the guise of travel agents and translations services, and other such businesses. They all charge less than license North Bergen, immigration lawyer, but they are unable to provide the service of a true immigration lawyer.
In North Bergen, New Jersey, as in other cities and states there are many such immigration consultants who offer to help obtain legal residency. Some of them are honest and hardworking and limit their work to forms preparation without to resorting to making believe that they are licensed New Jersey Immigration Lawyers. Some of the consultants are former employees of the Immigration Service or were U.S. consular employees. As there is NO LICENSE for immigration consultants and NO EXAMINATION needed, you can imagine the inconsistency in the quality of the work. Consultants, unlike a licensed North Bergen Immigration Lawyer are not subject to discipline by the Bar Association and normally cannot be held for damages for their work product.
One thing for sure, the immigration consultants, are not permitted to appear at an immigration hearing to represent a client. Not only can they not appear in front of an immigration examiner, they are not permitted to represent anyone in immigration court.
And there is no guarantee that when they complete the immigration forms that they know how to conduct a proper review, the way a licensed North Bergen Immigration Lawyer would do, to prevent needless complications and possible deportation action.

In the United States, Notaries are authorized to compare signatures and certify "notarize" that the signature on a form is that of the person who is named on the form, take oaths, or certifying a copy of paper. But that is not so in many foreign countries. In Latin countries, Notarios hold an esteemed position very similar to lawyers. The Notario prepares documents, and reviews their execution and in some countries may have the power of law.
New immigrants get confused and believe that an American Notary has the same power and place in our society as that of a Notario in their country. The immigrant believing that a Notatio is like a licensed lawyer, hires the Notario and in many cases, find themselves in "hot water." In the United States most anyone can become a Notary Public, by filling our an application and taking a very simple test. To make a complaint against a Notario Publico click here.
