Immigration Services

Catholic Charities provides services to immigrants in need of assistance. Immigrants seeking to improve their legal status in America face a complex system of laws. A staff of lawyers and paralegals offers representation to immigrants – documented or undocumented, newly arrived or longtime residents - on a broad range of matters, including: application for citizenship, relative petitions, applications for work authorization, information from pending immigration and naturalization cases, legal representation in political asylum and deportation, petitions for battered and abused spouses and children.

Services are provided at various locations throughout Orange County. Reasonable fees are charged by Catholic Charities, but no one is turned away for inability to pay. Visitors are strongly encouraged to bring interpreters, as language accommodations may not be immediately available. Home visits are provided on a case-by-case basis.

The New York State Immigration Hotline is operated by Catholic Charities 1-800-566-7636. The New York Immigration Hotline is the only multilingual, full service information and referral resource for New York’s immigrant community. Hotline operators handle calls about immigration and naturalization benefits and procedures. Inquiries about individual eligibility are referred to agencies for immigration consultations.
