Frequently Asked Questions About Our Immigration Services

Immigration law is a particularly confusing subject. It’s federal, and it changes all of the time. The good news is that our affordable immigration attorneys are here to help.

Absolutely. Northern Nevada Legal Aid assists Northern Nevada residents with all kinds of civil legal matters, and many of those issues overlap with immigration services. For example, we offer legal services to victims of domestic violence, and if you are dealing with domestic abuse, your immigration attorney can connect you with the legal representation you need to change your situation.

Much of the work we do can be conducted by pro bono immigration attorneys. However, the Reno immigration services department works a little bit differently. Our staff members who help those seeking immigration services are not attorneys, but they are accredited to practice immigration law. Our staff members can provide the same immigration services as an attorney, but we are not technically attorneys.

Although Reno serves as a population hub and central location within our Northern Nevada service area, Northern Nevada Legal Aid immigration clients are not limited to Reno. Whether you are looking for a Reno immigration attorney or Carson City immigration attorney, or even if you’re from Truckee or just about anywhere else, our Reno-based immigration services staff can help you in our local area.

We offer free immigration legal services to many clients, and for those who don’t qualify for free services, we offer highly reduced, affordable immigration services in Reno.

We can. Helping residents get legal immigration status for their loved ones is one of the core tasks we handle.
