Afghan Legal Representation

Legal support for Afghan arrivals in regards to legal questions

Posted October 25, 2021

Background & Context

Due to the recent Afghanistan crisis, we are receiving a large number of Afghan arrivals coming under different legal statuses. Many have concerns about their families back in Afghanistan and neighboring countries (family reunification). Many are arriving under parolee or SIV status and have questions on their legal paperwork. Most individuals do not have the means to hire an immigration attorney.

Work & Deliverables

Help provide consultations to Afghan clients around their legal status, family reunification, parolee status, asylum process and application, and filling legal documentation.
