Citizenship & Immigration Services

 
The Citizenship & Immigration Services is one of only two non-sectarian programs in the state accredited by the Bureau of Immigration Appeals (BIA), a branch of the federal government.  Seven accredited caseworkers and a staff attorney are trained to handle immigration matters such as citizenship, petitions for relatives, green card applications, asylum applications, deportation defense, and temporary protected status.

  • Largest and longest-running legal immigration service in Rhode Island
  • Accredited caseworkers average more than 20 years experience with immigration
  • Federal accreditation enables us to represent clients before immigration
  • Over 5,000 immigrants, families, and service providers receive services each year
  • Feinstein Center maintains an immigration attorney referral list to ensure best services for clients

We are pleased to acknowledge and to thank our many wonderful collaborators including Alan Shawn Feinstein, the RI Bar Association, the United Way of RI, Providence College, Holy Ghost, Liberian Association of RI, Progresso Latino, the Pawtucket Public Library, and Catholic Social Services.
