Thread: Voluntary Agencies (VOLAGs) in Chicago, IL

    Does any one know any VOLAG in the Chicago area? My husband and I can't afford to pay an immigration attorney and we are not that well-versed ourselves in handling paperwork...some American friends of ours told us to contact an VOLAG but we don't know any...would appreciate your help

    You can check in your local Yellow pages in Chicago Area. Otherwise you can seek assistance from Catholic Social Services or other Non profit organizations for free legal help.
    Good luck.

    Umesh's advice is not bad:

    ALAC-Catholic Chatities Immigration & Refugee Resettlement Services
    126 N. DesPlaines St.
    Chicago, IL 60611
    312.427.7078


    is a very credible organization.

    These not-for-profit agencies, known also as voluntary agencies, provide free or low-cost immigration law services. Be aware however that the quality of service provided by VOLAGs, just like those of attorneys, varies. If you are not happy with the services of a particular organization, shop around.

    Just in case I'm including here a couple of other VOLAGs:

    Legal Services Center for Immigrants,
    Legal Assistance Foundation of Chicago
    1661 S. Blue Island Av.
    Chicago, IL 60608
    312.226.0173

    Travelers & Immigrants Aid, Midwest Immigrants Rights Center
    208 S. LaSalle
    Chicago, IL 60604
    312.629.1960

    World Relief
    3507 West Lawrence
    Chicago, IL 60608
    312.583.0002

    Good Luck!

    I spoke to three -- yes THREE -- immigration attorneys in Chicago some time ago and no one of them gave me a clear-cut answer for my questions...the one thing that they did do was charge me $150 for an hour of consultation.
