Immigration Counseling

JVS Immigration Services seeks to help reunite families and strengthen our diverse community. Our program is accredited by the Department of Justice: Office of Legal Access Programs.

Our bi-lingual (English/Spanish) immigration counselors work one-on-one with refugees and immigrants to complete family-based immigration applications, applications to adjust to permanent resident status, and naturalization applications. We also assist with applying for some humanitarian-based immigration benefits.

Our citizenship services provide assistance navigating the naturalization application process to elderly or disabled individuals, or individuals that have a medical condition which prevents them from learning the required material to pass the traditional naturalization exam.
