WHO IS IMMIGRATION DOCUMENT PREPARER?

An Immigration Forms Preparer is someone who helps people complete immigration forms to enter and live in the United States.

 

There are many USCIS forms immigrants need help with, like the I-485 (to become a permanent resident or “green card holder”) and the N-400 (application for U.S. citizenship).

 

To fill out these official forms correctly requires English-language fluency. Strong attention to detail is needed to prepare the submission packages to meet the requirements of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

 

The primary service an Immigration Forms Preparer provides is helping people complete immigration forms and prepare packages for submission to USCIS.

 

To fill out a person’s immigration documents thoroughly, an IFS may perform additional services. These services may include translating the applicant’s answers to questions on the forms and collecting required support documents, such as birth certificates.
