Finding Free or Low-cost Legal Help

12/01/2011
  • Vera’s Unaccompanied Children Program has prepared a directory of legal service organizations that provide free or low-cost immigration legal assistance and representation for non-detained children in immigration proceedings. The directory, which is organized alphabetically by state, includes the types of legal assistance provided by each organization and the areas and immigration courts served.

  • The Immigration Advocates Network and Pro Bono Net have created a website to help low-income immigrants find free or low-cost legal help. The website provides information about more than 900 nonprofit immigration legal services providers in all 50 states. The website allows searches for nonprofit legal services to be done by state, county, detention facility, languages spoken, types of legal and other services provided, and specific areas of legal assistance. It is available in English and Spanish. Not all of the organizations in this directory provide representation to children.
