Immigration Advocacy Program
Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada offers a wide array of immigration services. Learn more about who we helped and our accomplishments by clicking here to view our Immigration Year-End Program Report for 2021.
We offer a free community service information class on immigration options, taught by a licensed attorney in either English or Spanish. In "Do I Have a Path to Legal Status in the United States?", you’ll get an overview of the requirements for the various paths to legal immigration status, including family petitions, VAWA petitions, U Visas, T Visas, asylum, and current DACA updates. For class schedules and additional information about the free class, click here.
Our immigration program provides direct representation to victims of domestic violence (VAWA petitions), victims of serious crime (U Visa), victims of trafficking (T Visa), unaccompanied minors, children in foster care (Special Immigrant Juvenile Visa), and asylum. We also provide assistance for other immigration matters.
Applying for Services
To apply for legal representation for VAWA, U Visa, T Visa, Special Immigrant Juvenile Visa, asylum, or other immigration matters, please visit our office during walk-in hours, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. An application for our services can be downloaded here. Any victim of domestic violence or a serious crime needs to provide proof of the crime or abuse and a personal declaration that narrates the crime or abuse. For more information about our requirements, check the instructions in the application packet for the service you're requesting. If the information isn't in the packet, call our hotline number at 702-386-1070, ext. 1750.
