DETAILS

The new tool, from the Immigrant Advocates Network and Pro Bono Net, makes it possible for immigrants to learn about all possible avenues for achieving legal status, like family-based immigration, Temporary Protected Status, asylum, Special Immigrant Juvenile Statues, and even visas for victims of crime or trafficking. Also, immigrants who can’t afford lawyers can find out what legal statuses they might be eligible for by answering a series of basic interview questions.

Then, based on eligibility, Immi’s network of experts can connect those in need with free or low-cost legal help from civil legal aid groups. The site is currently available in English or Spanish, and you can check it out at the link below.
