Immigration Clinic: Resources

Resources for People in Immigration Proceedings

The Immigration Clinic has created self-help flyers and other resources for people in Immigration proceedings to use when applying for legal relief. These resources are meant to guide people through the difficulties of immigration law, but do not constitute legal advice.

Because immigration law and procedure can be complicated and winning a case is difficult, people are encouraged to seek the assistance of a lawyer. People who are proceeding without a lawyer and anyone who would like more detailed information about the topics discussed here should visit the law library of the detention center or jail where they are detained.
