Submit Your Legal Intake by May 31!

For over ten years, our Immigration Legal Intake Service has served over 4,500 undocumented individuals across the United States. Over time, we’ve grown a lot to provide a free, trusted online immigration legal service. And as we continue, we want to take an opportunity to reflect on how we can strengthen and improve our legal intake service to better serve our community.

Our Legal Intake service will be temporarily unavailable starting June 1 and will return by the end of August 2021. If you are interested in submitting an intake, please complete the online form by 11:59 p.m. PT on Monday, May 31, 2021.
