Legal Those practicing law without a license in United States Immigration matters can cause great hardship to those whom they claim to "represent." This hardship is often most acutely felt by the immigrant communities that are most negatively affected by unauthorized individuals claiming to be qualified or licensed to represent foreign nationals and their American citizen family members in US immigration and visa proceedings. In Thailand, many people (both Thai and American) are under the mistaken impression that any "visa company," "visa agent," or "immigration consultant," is entitled to assist in preparing visa applications and petitions submitted to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). This is simply not true. The Department of Homeland Security, which has jurisdiction over the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), has specific rules regarding who may represent clients in United States immigration proceedings. Under the current rules, only one who is licensed to practice law before the highest Court in one of the 50 United States or Territories and eligible to practice in all US jurisdictions shall be entitled advise and represent clients before the Department of Homeland Security as well as the agencies that are under DHS’s authority (example: USCIS). Recently, USCIS explored the issues surrounding the unauthorized practice of United States Immigration law. In a recent release distributed by USCIS the following information was reported: "Many unauthorized practitioners promise to expedite cases, and then take an applicant’s money and disappear – applicants are willing to pay more to an unauthorized practitioner than they would to a private attorney because they may believe that [they] can provide premium services…"* The idea that a "visa agent" has a "special relationship" with government officers is quite prevalent in Southeast Asia and wholly untrue. A person claiming to have a "special relationship," or "special influence," with United States Immigration authorities in either the US Department of Homeland Security or the US Department of State is simply not being candid and should probably be avoided as no one ought to have a "special relationship" with American government personnel and if they did it would likely constitute a criminal offense. American officials in both the Department of Homeland Security and the US State Department adjudicate cases impartially based upon the unique set of facts and evidence presented in each case. This author applauds the efforts of USCIS in studying the problem of unauthorized practitioners. One can hope that these assessments will lead to action on the part of American officials in pursuit of those who prey upon the immigrant and prospective immigrant communities both in the United States of America and abroad. For those seeking representation in an immigration matter it is wise to ask the prospective representative for information regarding their Bar Association Membership Card, License to Practice Law, or a License Number and State of Licensure. This information could be utilized when cross-referencing the attorney’s credentials in order to ensure that one is retaining a licensed representative who is in good standing. * About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
