Immigrants often need advice to understand how the legal system works. But be very careful when you look for advice. There are people who seem to be lawyers—or even say they are lawyers—but they are not.

An immigration consultant, paralegal, or notary public is not a lawyer. A good lawyer would never “promise” or “guarantee” to win your case.

To get legal advice, talk to a lawyer as soon as possible. You can contact organizations in your community or visit this list of attorneys by county.
