Services provided in multiple languages include:

  • Citizenship applications
  • Legal residence petitions for relatives such as spouses, children, parents and siblings
  • Work authorization applications
  • Special residence petitions for spouses and children who are victims of violence
  • Information about pending immigration and naturalization cases
  • Petitions for battered spouses and children
  • Temporary Protected Status applications
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
  • Green card replacement
  • Legal residence for victims of a crime in the United States
  • Provides low cost immigration services for those who are unable to afford a private lawyer. Catholic Social Services provides these services regardless of race, religion, gender or ethnic origin. Clients are charged nominal fees for these services. This program offers comprehensive and high quality legal immigration and naturalization support services.
  • CSS also helps immigrants avoid exploitation by unscrupulous practitioners by providing correct information and realistic counsel about immigration status.
