Immigration Legal Services

We provide high-quality, low-cost and pro bono legal immigration services. We empower immigrants, helping hundreds of people each year to obtain legal status in the United States for the first time in their lives. Our bilingual attorneys, paralegals, and caseworkers provide comprehensive services, guiding clients through each step of the immigration process. We serve clients in the southern ten counties of New Mexico, through our Las Cruces and Roswell offices. We also serve clients who live in west Texas and El Paso.

We help with the following type of cases:

  • Naturalization/Citizenship
  • Family-based petitions
    • Family Petition (I-130)
    • Adjustment of Status (I-130/I-485)
    • Removal of conditions of residency (I-751)
    • Waiver of extreme hardship for unlawful presence (I-601 and I-601A)
    • Consular Process
  • Green card renewals
  • DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals)
  • U-visas (for crime victims)*
  • T-visas (for trafficking victims)*
  • VAWA (visas for victims of domestic violence)*
  • SIJS (Special Immigrant Juvenile Status) – for children who have been abandoned, abused, or neglected by one or both parents*
  • Defense of Deportation
  • Asylum and Defense of Deportation
  • Bond Hearings

* Because of the funding we receive from the Mexican Consulate, we are able to provide free services for the majority of victims of crime and domestic violence and for Special Immigrant Juveniles who are Mexican Nationals. For other types of cases, we charge a flat fee which is much more reasonable than private attorneys, who charge by the hour. We also assist our clients in determining whether they qualify for a fee waiver for the immigration fees (for the types of cases for which fee waivers exist).

Before opening a case, we will do an initial consultation to see if you qualify for the immigration benefit you are applying for and to explain the costs and requirements.

Please call our Las Cruces or Roswell office to schedule a consultation. We see clients Monday through Friday.
