Local DACA Legal Services

There are several options to book an appointment to renew your DACA, apply for DACA for the first time, or apply for Advance Parole through DACA with CARECEN.

FAMILY SOURCE CENTERS

If you live in the City of Los Angeles, you can register for our services through one of our offsite partners. This may be the fastest way to get an appointment. You will need to contact one of our offsite partners (whichever is most convenient for you) and register with them prior to receiving services. Let them know you are requesting immigration legal services from CARECEN when you call. Here is a list of our current offsite partners:

NEW AMERICANS PROGRAM OF THE LOS ANGELES PUBLIC LIBRARY

CARECEN temporarily is not offering services at the Los Angeles Public Library. We will resume services soon. Stay tune for that update!

In the meantime, LAPL appointments are still available to California residents without income restrictions. Please call (213) 228-7390 and leave a message, a library staff member will return your call within 2 working days. You will be offered an appointment with another immigration legal service provider.

BOOK AN APPOINTMENT DIRECTLY WITH CARECEN STAFF

Click HERE to book an appointment through our online scheduler. Your DACA Renewal or Initial DACA appointment will be free of charge if your household earns under 250% of the Federal Poverty Line. If you earn over 250% of the poverty line, you will be responsible for our legal services fees, which range from $300 - $600 if you book your appointment directly with CARECEN. You can avoid these fees if you book through one of our offsite partners (Family Source Centers or the Los Angeles Public Library, see above). Finally, we do not have funding to provide Advance Parole services for free if you book directly with CARECEN but you can book through the Family Source Centers or LAPL to avoid our $300 legal services charge.
