The Immigration Project provides access to quality legal services in Central and Southern Illinois.  Due to the complexity of immigration law, we have found that access to quality legal services is essential to keeping families united, building strong communities, and protecting victims of crime.  The Immigration Project is a nonprofit organization providing immigration legal assistance to the 100,000 immigrants residing in Central and Southern Illinois.

Attorney Consultations on Immigration Issues

We offer individual attorney consultations and evaluations on immigration issues.  Our staff are all fluent in Spanish.  Topics include citizenship; assistance for victims of crimes, including domestic violence; family reunification; removal defense; and the recent Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Contact our office to learn more.
