More and more often, we are hearing reports of attorneys in Waco and surrounding areas (Temple, San Antonio, etc) who are being dishonest and are ripping off families and individuals in Waco – they’re messing up paperwork, not showing up for court, not turning in paperwork, not returning calls, etc and refuse to issues refunds. (Some of them even hire other Latinas to go into the community where immigrant families spend their time and who are misleading others and recommending these dishonest attorneys.)
Additionally, notario fraud is a HUGE problem in Waco- notaries, or notarios, in the USA are NOT authorized to practice immigration law or any kind of law, nor to complete legal documents, etc. In other countries this is different, but in the US they are ONLY trained and authorized to **witness a signature**- that is ALL. Many people have told us that notarios are misrepresenting themselves and are completely messing up their paperwork, to the point where there is no way to undo the damage that has been done and people are losing their green cards and being accused of fraud and deported for what a notario did to their papers.
Therefore, we’ve created a page where anyone in Waco who has ever hired an immigration attorney or criminal attorney can submit a quick review to help others make informed decisions! (Even if the person is a notario but is claiming to be authorized to fill out immigration papers, leave a review for that too!) Thank you for helping other families to be spared from losing thousands of dollars to dishonest people and worse- losing their legal status or their immigration case and being torn away from their family and lives here.
