Find Help in Your Community

 

USCIS Offices Temporarily Closed to the Public.
USCIS Response to Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

Many community organizations and social service providers offer citizenship classes and assistance with the naturalization process. Classes are often held in the evenings and on weekends. In many cases, these programs provide additional support and referral services as well.

If you need help with an immigration issue, you can use the services of a licensed immigration attorney or accredited representative of a Board of Immigration Appeals recognized organization. Be sure to review the ¨Legal Assistance¨ section below so you can make the right decision about what kind of legal help you need.

Other resources may be available in your community. See the NALEO Educational Fund's directory of Citizenship Centers or CitizenshipWorks for a selection of service providers in each state.
