CLA's Immigration Unit represents clients seeking various forms of humanitarian immigration relief. We help immigrant survivors of domestic violence and other crimes to secure legal status through self-petitions under the Violence Against Women Act and applications for U and T visas. We provide referrals to other non-profit agencies for those we cannot represent.
