2.7 - Immigration Specialists/Consultants

Immigration specialists/consultants – who include visa consultants and “notarios” – are not practitioners and are not authorized to practice law or to appear before the Board.   They do not qualify either as accredited representatives or “reputable individuals” under the regulations.  See Chapters 2.4 (Accredited Representatives), 2.9(a) (Reputable Individuals).  These individuals may be violating the law by practicing law without a license.
