For the fifth year there will be a free clinic helping immigrants with citizenship questions,
On April 20 from 9am to 12pm at the legal aid society in Cleveland, 1223 W. Sixth Street, there will be two floors of activities; the first floor will be for people who have general advice questions. Law students will take questions and bring them to the attention of an immigration attorney who will then answer the question.
On the second floor people will help with citizenship questions and help fill out an array of applications.
“Anyone who does not have the means to hire an attorney should go,” said attorney Stacy Cozart.
The clinic is designed to help with those who have status questions, such as green card issues, VISA questions, and even questions on how to start a business. Cozart said the clinic will not be a lecture; there will be about 25 attorneys to help each person on an individual case by case basis. She believes the setting will be more productive.
“As long as it’s an immigration issue, we should be able to help them out,” she said.
Cozart expects questions on immigration reform and deportation proceedings and wants anyone who comes to bring all necessary paperwork and if possible bring someone who is bilingual to assist in translations; it will help move cases along faster.
