Immigration Assistance Providers: About the Board
About The Board
The Registration of Immigration Assistance Act, O.C.G.A. Title 43, Chapter 20A, regulates companies and individuals that provide immigration assistance in Georgia. Immigration Assistance is defined as any service provided to clients for compensation related to immigration matters, such as completing government agency forms. It does not include legal advice, recommending a specific course of legal action, or providing any other assistance that requires legal analysis, legal judgment, or the interpretation of the law. Immigration Assistance Providers must register with the Office of the Secretary of State to provide immigration assistance unless exempted by the Act. The Act gives authority to the Secretary of State to take disciplinary action against those persons and companies who violate its provisions.
