Who Can You Trust?

With so many announcements and changes in immigration laws and policies taking place now and to come this year, where can a person find good advice?  Can an immigration consultant (a "notario") give me advice? What about a notary public? Or my friend's brother who is a divorce lawyer?

Immigration law is one of the most complicated fields of law out there, second only to tax law. There are well-meaning people who may try to give you or sell you advice about getting a green card, or "fixing" some other immigration issue.  Do not be a victim. Unless the person is a qualified immigration lawyer, their advice can be extremely dangerous, and can prevent you from ever obtaining papers.

The American Immigration Lawyers Association "Immigration Lawyer Search" web page is a great place to start when you're looking for good advice.  There are also nonprofit organizations in the Hudson Valley and New York City that can provide low cost immigration legal assistance. Check our "Links" page for more information, or visit this page of the New York Immigration Coalition: 


Free Citizenship Test Preparation

Westchester Community College and the White Plains Public Library are offering a free workshop on Saturday, February 16th, from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm. This workshop, presented by Westchester Community College’s Welcome Center, will provide an overview of the structure and content of the U.S. Citizenship exam.  It will also include an overview of the free test preparation materials that are available to the public. Participants will become familiar with the civics and English portions of the exam and will do some practice for both sections. The workshop is designed both for those who have already applied for U.S. citizenship and for those who are planning to do so in the future.

For more information, please call (914)606-5626. No advance registration required.
The workshop will take place in the White Plains Public Library, Room A, on
