ILC is a safe and caring place for immigrants and their families to ask for help. Call NILAH  to determine if you are eligible for a consultation. 1.855.307.6730


Immigrant Legal Center collaborates with the Nebraska Immigration Legal Assistance Hotline to better serve you in regards to your case. NILAH’s intake process allows ILC attorneys to provide you with a high-quality legal consultation in a timely manner. The hotline will help you determine if you are eligible for a consultation. There is a waiting list, and your appointment may be scheduled a month or more after your initial call.

Detainee Consultations

Detained foreign nationals facing deportation can apply for free legal representation through the Pro Bono Detainee Project. ILC staff reviews the person’s eligibility for immigration bond and/or deportation defenses. If eligible, ILC contacts volunteer private attorneys who are willing to work with client cases pro-bono through this program.

If you are seeking legal immigration services for someone who is currently detained and would like to apply to the Pro Bono Detainee Project, you may fill out form online in English and Spanish or download the intake form in English or Spanish.


Urgent Consultations (Not Detainees)

If your legal needs are urgent and not related to a detained foreign national, you may download this
