The Old Testament enjoins us to "treat the alien who resides with you no differently than the natives born among you." (Leviticus 19:34) The mission of Catholic Legal Services (CLS) is to implement this teaching by providing professional immigration services to South Florida 's refugee and immigrant communities and attorney representation before the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the Immigration Courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals.

Over 1,000 individuals seek the services of CLS each month. CLS provides pro bono services to individuals and family who qualify based on income, eligibility status, and the availability of resources.

For those who do not qualify for free services, CLS may represent you based on a sliding fee scale. For those who can afford a private attorney, CLS encourages you to seek the services of a qualified immigration attorney, particularly members of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. We will be happy to refer you to a qualified immigration attorney should we determine that we cannot help you.
