FINANCIAL ELIGIBILITY / FINDING A PRIVATE IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY: Unlike in the criminal justice system, the government does not provide free lawyers (public defenders) in immigration court. Most organizations on this list require financial screening, as free or low cost legal services are limited to low-income individuals. Individuals who earn enough income to hire a private attorney can visit or to find an immigration attorney in their area.

WARNING ABOUT UNLICENSED PRACTICE OF LAW: Individuals must go to a licensed attorney for legal advice and assistance. Some non-profits also have “accredited representatives” who are non-attorneys authorized to provide limited services in some types of immigration cases. Do not go to a “notario,” “paralegal,” or “immigration consultant.” These non-attorneys cannot represent individuals in immigration processes, and are committing a felony offense in Florida by providing legal advice, even if they are “just filling out forms.” Fla. Stat. §454.23. Many immigrants’ lives and dreams have been destroyed by the false promises and incorrect advice of non-attorney “notarios.”
