The Coalition’s Immigrant Legal Clinic was created to address the unique problems faced by immigrant survivors. We provide legal advice and representation to immigrant survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking throughout Tennessee. Abuse need not be physical, and may include coercion, withholding of documents or privileges, threats, verbal abuse and stalking. Additionally, we work with community partners to help collectively defend and advocate for immigrant survivors and ensure their access to life-saving protections that all survivors of violence deserve.
There are no restrictions on what type of immigration case the Clinic takes, nor are there strict income guidelines. However, all clients must be victims of domestic or sexual violence and unable to afford an attorney on their own. Case acceptance is handled on a case-by-case basis and determined on the merits of the case and whether relief is available. Please contact us for your FREE appointment by calling 615.386.9406 or via the Online Intake Form below.
If you are a survivor of violence, regardless of immigration status, please know you have a right to receive help when calling 9-1-1, go to an emergency room or clinic, and request a restraining order.
Si Ud. es víctima de violencia, tiene el derecho de recibir ayuda llamando al 9-1-1, ir al hospital o una clínica, y pedir un orden de protección sin que importe su estatus migratorio.
