USCIS Unauthorized Practice of Immigration Law Initiative

Posted on June 17th, 2011, by James Livesay in Immigration Law. Comments Off on USCIS Unauthorized Practice of Immigration Law Initiative

On June 9, 2011, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services outlined their new Unauthorized Practice of Immigration Law Initiative. As stated in the Executive Summary of the initiative:

The unauthorized practice of immigration law (UPIL) is a serious national problem that adversely impacts individuals throughout the country. Anyone who is in need of an immigration benefit, either for himself or a family member, can be harmed by UPIL, including U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, nonimmigrants, refugees and asylees, and undocumented aliens. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will combat this pervasive problem through its UPIL Initiative.
