It depends on the type of false document. Creating or presenting a document with a government seal can be prosecuted as a felony. Call us immediately at 1-800-327-4652 for assistance.

Re: what is penalty for false documents

The question is sort of vague, so the answers will necessarily be general. It can be a federal or a state fraud to create and use a false document, but the nature of the document and the way it is used is critical in determining what will happen if someone finds out about it. If you would like to discuss this further, feel free to call me.
