Legal Services

Almost half of all immigrants seeking assistance have a valid legal claim or available legal avenue to obtain legal status in the US. However, immigration laws and related legal proceedings are complex.

To make a legal right a reality, low-income immigrants need help to successfully access and navigate our justice system. We provide expert legal services so that low-income immigrants can overcome barriers and access justice.

Unaware of their rights and overwhelmed by a complex legal bureaucracy and language barriers, many immigrants require the aid of a professional to navigate the U.S. immigration system. Ayuda’s staff attorneys and pro bono program serve more than 3,000 women, men, and children every year by helping them obtain visas, work authorization, legal status, and more.

Ayuda's Response to Busing of Migrants

Since April 2022, Ayuda has been working to help coordinate the humanitarian response as the governors of Texas and Arizona continue to send thousands of migrants on buses to Washington, D.C.

We are providing culturally and linguistically specific legal, social and language access services to newly arriving migrants. These services include case management and intake support, interpretation, as well as the provision of food, clothing, hygiene kits, prepaid cell phones, medical supplies, and paid shelter.

Our legal team is providing individualized legal orientations for migrants explaining the immigration system and helping them be aware of their rights and responsibilities.  

“Immigrants are first and foremost, human beings. They deserve respect and compassion, and Ayuda will continue to do what we do best – provide holistic support to those in need in our communities.” - Paula Fitzgerald, Executive Director
