- Immigration Consult
Seek an immigration consult from an Immigration Attorney or Accredited Representative to see if you are eligible for any alternate form of immigration relief. Ayuda is hosting regular, FREE, immigration consult clinics. Call 202-387-4848 for details.
- Fraud Warning
Congress has not passed the DREAM Act, nor any other legislative solution at this time.
ALWAYS beware of anyone who asks you to pay before there is a way to apply. ALWAYS make sure you understand what must be done in your case, and why, before you proceed.
NEVER sign anything that you don't understand or that is left blank. NEVER trust a representative who says they have a special connection in the government, because the government does NOT accept bribes or do favors.
