Helping low-income, Spanish-speaking immigrants acquire the tools they need to thrive.

In light of the unprecedented levels of fear and uncertainty facing immigrant communities, it is important to stay connected to expert and trusted sources of information. We have recently received a massive number of phone calls and emails regarding ICE raids in Marin. We verify the accuracy of all reports, and when we receive information about ICE in Marin that we are able to verify, we will inform the community as soon as possible.

Immigration Legal Services

We offer immigration legal services to low-income Marin County residents. We assist with general legal consultations, asylum and SIJS for children, naturalization, DACA, TPS, U visas, T visa, green card renewals, and VAWA.  At this time we are not taking new clients for family based cases, adjustment of status or deportation defense.

Citizenship classes: We offer classes in English to prepare for citizenship test. Please contact us for more information.

Know your rights: We provide information on how to prepare in case of an encounter with an immigration officer. Know your constitutional rights regardless of legal status!

We reserve the right to change this list of services according to our capacity. Given the high volume of clients we serve every day, we can’t guarantee immediate availability. When you come to our offices our receptionists will schedule an appointment with our department to assess your case. This is an initial appointment and does not guarantee that we will take your case.  We will be happy to offer additional resources and refer you to other agencies if needed. We do charge a fee depending on the type of case.
