Our services

Our primary goal is to treat the refugees, asylees, and immigrants among us with the respect and dignity they deserve. We believe that no human being is illegal, and that every person deserves equal representation and access to legal services, regardless of status.

About Immigration Legal Services

Immigration Legal Services (ILS) of Catholic Charities Dallas was established in 1975 in response to the growing number of immigrants moving to the North Texas area.

Program caseworkers are committed to help individuals understand the immigration law and to know their rights under the law.

The program provides a broad range of immigration representation to immigrants and their families.
