The Office of Immigration Services serves all individuals, regardless of race, religion, or country of origin, who are experiencing problems in seeking admission into the country, seeking permanent residence, citizenship, or family reunification while here in the United States. Our goal is to stabilize their situation, achieve self-sufficiency as quickly as possible, and participate in the life of the community. Our multilingual/multicultural staff anticipates the needs of our client population and responds accordingly, providing assistance in translating, completing intake forms, and assimilating to cross-cultural differences.

Immigration Services

Immigrants have always played a significant role in the development of our region, providing infusions of culture, energy, and enthusiasm that help Northwest Florida flourish. Our Immigration Program, which is recognized by the US Department of Justice: Office of Legal Access Programs, provides low-cost, quality legal immigration services.

Each new client completes an in-take, rights and responsibilities form, and pre-immigration questionnaire for consultations. When filing petitions through our office, each client completes the post-immigration survey, a service plan, and signs a service agreement specifying that if they are present in the country without proper documentation, they are subject to law enforcement including deportation, and the fees due to USCIS as well as the nominal fee payable to Catholic Charities for services rendered.
