Federal regulations allow non-attorney “Accredited Representatives” to assist individuals with immigration forms. These representatives are accredited through the Department of Justice (DOJ) Recognition and Accreditation (R&A) Program, which aims to increase the availability of competent immigration legal representation. The Glenside Library is officially recognized by the DOJ, pursuant to Title 8 Code of Federal Regulations Part 292.2.

Not all individuals seeking assistance will receive it. Individuals looking for assistance with immigration benefits other than those listed below, or who have a criminal history or other circumstances that make their case more complex will be referred to other qualified agencies.
