What is an Accredited Representative?

 Federal regulations allow non-attorney “Accredited Representatives” to represent aliens before the Department of Homeland Security and the Executive Office for Immigration Review, which includes the immigration courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals. These representatives are accredited through the Recognition and Accreditation  Program, which aims to increase the availability of competent immigration legal representation for low-income and indigent persons, thereby promoting the effective and efficient administration of justice. Accredited Representatives may only provide immigration legal services through Recognized Organizations. Only non-profit, federally tax-exempt entities may apply to be recognized.

¿Qué es un representante acreditado?

 Las regulaciones federales permiten que los no abogados "Representantes Acreditados" representen a extranjeros ante el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional y la Oficina Ejecutiva de Revisión de Inmigración, que incluye los tribunales de inmigración y la Junta de Apelaciones de Inmigración. Estos representantes están acreditados a través del Programa de Reconocimiento y Acreditación, que tiene como objetivo aumentar la disponibilidad de representación legal migratoria competente para las personas de bajos ingresos e indigentes, promoviendo así la eficacia y eficiencia administración de justicia. Los Representantes Acreditados solo pueden proporcionar servicios legales de inmigración a través de Organizaciones Reconocidas. Solo las entidades sin fines de lucro, exentas de impuestos federales pueden solicitar ser reconocidas.
