Immigration Legal Services

Legal help on immigration issues for low-income immigrants

Consultations are by appointment only.

If you are a new client seeking legal immigration support, check out next free brief advice & referral remote clinic here.

If you are a DC resident, please call (202) 387-4848 on the 15th of the month to see if any appointments are available for new client consultations the following month. New appointments are very limited at this time, so not everyone who calls on the 15th will be able to get an appointment.

If you are a Montgomery County, Maryland resident in removal proceedings or a Maryland resident who has experienced domestic violence, forced labor, or other forms of human trafficking, please call 240-594-0600 to see if any consultation appointments are available.

Ayuda’s Virginia office is closed for immigration legal consultations for new and former clients at this time.

In looking for an immigration attorney, beware of non-attorneys or “notarios” who are not allowed to provide immigration legal services. If you believe you may be a victim of fraud in your immigration case, please contact Project END at 202-552-3604.

Ayuda aims to provide free legal services whenever possible. We are able to provide free immigration legal services, including consultations, to many individuals because of grant funding we receive.

If we are unable to serve you for free, Ayuda’s legal consultation fee is $100. If you are unable to pay, please ask to apply for a waiver of Ayuda’s legal fees.
