If you decide to use AIC’s Electronic Filing Service, we will forward your completed application to the USCIS electronically. Be sure to review your application for errors before electronically filing or mailing it. You must verify the status of your application to confirm that it has been received and accepted by the USCIS. If the USCIS rejects your e-filed application, you are responsible for filing it manually. We cannot guarantee that the USCIS will accept your application and are not responsible for rejection of your application due to any circumstance beyond our control, such as incorrect data or information, ineligibility, or a failure of the USCIS e-file system.
By using E-Filing, you agree to the disclosure to the USCIS (and any other immigration-related U.S. government authority) of all information relating to your use of the Electronic Filing Service. Additionally, you agree that we can request E-Filing receipts from the USCIS on your behalf, as needed.
Additionally, if you choose e-filing, for certain applications the USCIS may require that you use an account created on USCIS’ Electronic Immigration System, also know as “ELIS,” which is a website operated by the U.S. government. In choosing to e-file any applications that require use of the ELIS system, you are expressly authorizing AIC to setup and manage an account on your behalf directly tied to the e-filed application you submitted through the AIC Website, including creating a unique: (i) email address, (ii) password, and (iii) answers to security questions. AIC will continue to interact with the ELIS system, as needed, to process updates to the e-filed application you submitted through the AIC Website. Information that you provide to AIC through the AIC Website will also be provided to the ELIS system and the U.S. Government.
Further, the use of the ELIS system will require you to consent to:
- The USCIS Privacy Act Statement (when you create your ELIS account);
- The use of your credit card to pay the applicable government filing fee(s); and
- Use of a Department of Homeland Security computer system (whenever you access your ELIS account).
At any time, you may Contact Us and request and obtain full, independent control of the ELIS account uniquely tied to the e-filed application you submitted through the AIC Website. However, please be advised that if you do so, it may result in disruption of AIC’s E-Filing Service and we will no longer be able to ensure that we will be able to continue to provide you with updates and support.
Limitations on Our Service
You agree that AIC is not responsible for any rejection or denial of your immigration application due ineligibility for the immigration benefit which you are seeking, due to your failure to timely or properly file your application, or for any circumstances outside our control. Further, you acknowledge that USCIS publishes updated forms and changes filing fees from time to time. If you delay submitting your application to USCIS, be sure to confirm that USCIS still accepts the form you have printed and that the filing fee has not changed. You can do so at any time by logging into AIC’s Application Support Center.

Choice of Law

Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration
Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.
Most or your concerns can be resolved quickly to your satisfaction by contacting our Customer Service Center via our Contact Us page. In the unlikely event that Customer Service cannot resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, or if we have not been able to resolve a dispute with you after trying to do so informally, we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration rather than in court. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows less discovery than courts, and is subject to very limited court review. We agree that any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis. Representative, group, collective or class actions or arbitrations are not permitted. As explained below, if you prevail in arbitration, AIC will pay you more than the amount of the arbitrator's award and will pay your actual, reasonable attorney's fees if you are awarded an amount greater than what AIC offered you to settle the dispute before arbitration.
You may speak with your own lawyer before using this Website or purchasing any Service, but your use of this Website and the purchase of any Service constitutes your agreement to these Terms.
- AIC and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us before a single arbitrator. The kinds of disputes and claims we agree to arbitrate are intended to be broadly interpreted, including but not limited to:
- claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, advertising, or any other legal theory;
- claims that arose before these or any prior Terms became effective;
- claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
- claims that may arise after the termination of these Terms.
For the purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, references to "AIC," "you," and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of Services under these Terms or any prior agreements between us.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude your bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and AIC are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a representative, group, collective or class action or arbitration.
You acknowledge that use of this Website and/or purchase of Service constitutes a transaction in interstate commerce. The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement survives termination of these Terms.
- A party seeking arbitration under these Terms must first send, by U.S. certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice") to the other party. A Notice to AIC should be addressed to: American Immigration Center, Inc., c/o Paracorp Incorporated, 236 East 6th Ave, Tallahassee, FL 32303, Attn: Notice of Dispute (the "Notice Address"). AIC may send a written Notice to the electronic mail address that you provided when you created an account, if any. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If AIC and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or AIC may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by AIC or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or AIC is entitled.
You may download or copy a form Notice at:
You may download or copy a form to initiate arbitration from the AAA website at:
(There is a separate form for California residents, also available on the AAA's website at:
- After AIC receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your total claim is for more than $75,000. If your total claim exceeds $75,000, the payment of all arbitration fees will be governed by the AAA rules. The filing fee for consumer-initiated arbitrations is currently $200, but this is subject to change by the arbitration provider. If you are unable to pay this fee and your total claim is for $75,000 or less, AIC will pay the filing fee directly after receiving a written request at the Notice Address. Except as otherwise provided herein, AIC will pay all AAA filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with these Terms. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse the AIC for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. All arbitration proceeding will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator is bound by these Terms. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and interpretation of the arbitration provision and the scope, enforceability, and interpretation of paragraph (f) are for the court to decide. Unless AIC and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county or parish of the contact address you submitted to AIC. If your total claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, by a telephone hearing, or by an in-person hearing governed by the AAA Rules. If you choose to proceed either by telephone or in person, we may choose to respond only by written or telephone. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the AAA Rules will determine whether you have a right to a telephone or in-person hearing. The parties agree that in any arbitration under these Terms, neither party will rely on any award or finding of fact or conclusion of law made in any other arbitration to which AIC was a party. In all cases, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned, written decision sufficient to explain the findings of fact and conclusions of law on which the award is based.
- If, the arbitrator finds in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim, and the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of AIC's last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then AIC will pay you either the amount of the award or $2,000 ("the Alternative Payment"), whichever is greater, plus the actual amount of reasonable attorney's fees and expenses that you incurred in investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration (the "Attorney's Payment"). If we did not make you a written offer to settle the dispute before an arbitrator was selected, you will be entitled to receive the Alternative Payment and the Attorney's Payment, respectively, if the arbitrator awards you any relief on the merits. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees, expenses, and the Alternative Payment and the Attorney's Payment at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits. In assessing whether an award that includes attorney’s fees or expenses is greater than the value of AIC’s last written settlement offer, the arbitrator shall consider only the actual attorney’s fees or expenses reasonably incurred before AIC’s settlement offer.
- The right to attorney's fees and expenses discussed in paragraph (d) supplements any right to attorney's fees and expenses you may have under applicable law. If you would be entitled to a larger amount under applicable law, this provision does not preclude the arbitrator from awarding you that amount. However, you may not recover duplicative awards of attorney's fees or costs. Although under some laws AIC may have a right to an award of attorney's fees and expenses from you if it prevails in an arbitration, AIC will not seek such an award.
- The arbitrator may award monetary and injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND THE AIC AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES AND NOT AS PLAINTIFFS OR CLASS MEMBERS IN ANY PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE, GROUP OR CLASS ACTION OR ARBITRATION, OR IN THE CAPACITY OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL. Further, unless both you and AIC agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, group or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court could award that is individualized to the claimant and would not affect other customers. Neither you nor we may seek nonindividualized relief that would affect other customers. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph's limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court. All other claims remain subject to this Arbitration Agreement.
- If the total amount in dispute exceeds $75,000 or either party seeks any form of injunctive relief, either party may appeal the award to a three-arbitrator panel administered by AAA by a written notice of appeal within thirty (30) days from the date of entry of the written arbitration award. An award of injunctive relief shall be stayed during any such appeal. The members of the three-arbitrator panel will be selected according to AAA rules. The three-arbitrator panel will issue its decision within one hundred and twenty (120) days of the date of the appealing party's notice of appeal. The decision of the three-arbitrator panel shall be final and binding, subject to any right of judicial review that exists under the FAA.
- Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, we agree that if we make any material change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to any notice address, website link or telephone number), that change will not apply to any dispute of which we had written notice on the effective date of the change. Moreover, if we seek to terminate this arbitration provision, any such termination will not be effective until at least thirty (30) days after written notice of such termination is provided to you, and shall not be effective as to disputes which arose prior to the date of termination.

AIC’s employees are not authorized to modify the Terms, or to make any additional representations, commitments, or warranties binding on AIC, except in writing signed by an authorized AIC officer.

Further, unless both you and AIC agree otherwise, no court or arbitrator may consolidate more than one person's claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class action based on any claim you may assert against AIC.
In the event that you breach these Terms, AIC will, in addition to all other available remedies, be entitled to the equitable remedies of a temporary restraining order, preliminary and/or permanent injunction.
