Please Note: The USCIS Field Office in Amman has never designated, recommended, or certified any law office, immigration representative, or translator/ interpreter to provide services in connection with any immigration procedure in Jordan or elsewhere. USCIS does not require notarized translation; we only require that the translator certify in writing his or her competence to translate documents from Arabic to English or vice versa. USCIS does not require that an individual applying for immigration benefits be represented by a lawyer or anyone else. If, however, an individual wishes an attorney to represent him or her, the attorney must provide this office with a fully completed form G-28 (Notice of Entry of Appearance). If an individual wishes someone else (not a lawyer) to obtain information about a case on his or her behalf, the individual must submit a signed statement permitting another person to receive information.
