Immigration Assistance

Any applicant will need to submit to an intake to see what they qualify for in terms of:

  • Type of application
  • Fee waivers (if applicable)
  • Assistance with testing or waiving of exam

Each type of application has its own conditions and requirements and therefore cannot be treated the same. Some applications are more in depth, complicated and take longer to approve than other applications. Fees and conditions do apply for the applications and if legal assistance is needed. United Labor Agency will counsel each applicant to the best of their ability; however, there are some cases that will require legal expertise. Another aspect of Immigration Assistance than ULA provides is education and materials regarding immigrant rights and workers’ rights.

If needed, ULA Coordinators can arrange for one on one tutoring sessions for the citizenship exam and interview or can refer you to a location and/or agency that better supports your needs.
