All of our services are free to our clients, and immigration cases can be long and complex, so we have to make difficult decisions about what cases we can take for full representation. The communities we serve bring us the immigration law problems they need help with, and based on their feedback, their situations, and what funding we can find to meet the needs, we decide on "priority" cases that we can accept for full representation. When a person seeking help calls MIRC at (734) 239-6863, we ask screening questions. If the person's case is not within our priorities, we share legal information and referrals but we do not accept their case. If it is within our priorities, we conduct a full intake so that we can learn all about the case and make a decision about whether we can accept it either for direct representation with MIRC or placement with a pro bono attorney. When a case is outside of our priorities, it doesn't mean that we don't care about the person or their legal problem; it means that we don't have enough resources to take it on. ... more
