U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) provides free resources to help guide you through the application process. Visit to download free forms, read instructions, get case status updates, or schedule in-person Infopass appointments to have your questions answered. You should never have to buy an immigration form!

The wrong help can HURT! For more information on common scams, visit the USCIS website or watch this video.

Only attorneys who are in good standing or a representative accredited by the Department of Justice (D.O.J.) working for a recognized organization are qualified to help you beyond basic preparation or translation. Notary publics, immigration consultants and other businesses are not able to give immigration legal advice. If you are not sure what immigration benefits to apply for or which USCIS forms you need to file, you should consult an attorney or a DOJ-accredited representative for immigration legal advice. You should never pay to download a USCIS form.
