We provide comprehensive legal services to immigrant survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in collaboration with community partners to ensure the safety and wellbeing for our clients and their children.

In conjunction with the Domestic Violence Prevention practice, we help survivors with:

  • Immigration remedies, including VAWA Self-Petitions and U Visa Petitions
  • Temporary Restraining Orders
  • Divorce, legal separation or annulments
  • Child or spousal support
  • Custody and visitation orders
  • Training and community education
  • NOTE: BayLegal DOES NOT handle DACA matters or other immigration matters. Please contact Catholic Charities or International Institute of the Bay Area for more information.

LEGAL ADVICE LINE

The Legal Advice Line provides free legal advice and referrals in all languages on a range of civil legal issues.

IMPORTANT UPDATE, DECEMBER 4, 2020

The Legal Advice Line will be closed starting this Monday, December 7, 2020 until January 3, 2020.  We are closing slightly early for the holiday this year in order to perform key technological upgrades that will allow us to better serve clients in the new year.  During this time, we recommend that you use the resources at www.lawhelpca.org to find legal help based on your location and issue, or call 211.  Thank you for your patience and understanding, and we hope everyone stays safe and enjoys the holiday season.
