An immigration attorney will be available at Councilman David Greenfield’s district office twice a month through June to provide free legal assistance with any immigration-related issues, the councilman announced Tuesday.
The attorney is part of a CUNY initiative and will be available to provide help with issues including naturalization, relative petitions, adjustment of status, consular processing, certificates of citizenship, replacement of lost or damaged documents, visa lottery entries, fee waiver applications and consultations on other immigration-related issues.
“I know that dealing with legal issues can be very stressful and expensive,” Greenfield said.
Greenfield said that providing residents of his district with access to free or low-cost legal help is especially important as it is home to many individuals who were born abroad or have family in other countries.
Meetings with the attorney are by appointment only and take place during business hours on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month through June. Please contact Greenfield’s office at (718) 853-2704 to schedule a confidential meeting.
