Local DACA Legal Services

There are several options to book an appointment to renew your DACA 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. If interested in being referred, please call (213) 385-7800 Ext. 209 or you can contact the offsite partner directly (whichever is convenient for you).

You will need to register with the offsite prior to receiving our services. If you contact the site directly, let them know you are requesting immigration legal services from CARECEN. Here is a list of our current offsite partners:

BOOK AN APPOINTMENT DIRECTLY WITH CARECEN STAFF

Click HERE to book an appointment through our online scheduler. As of November 1, 2022, we are charging a fee for renewals booked through our online scheduler. The fees for renewals are between $200-250 and $600+ for a complex case.

You can avoid these fees if you book through one of our offsite partners (Family Source Centers or the Los Angeles Public Library, see list above). There is no fee for our legal services at our off-sites.

Finally, we do offer Advance Parole services directly with CARECEN to avoid the legal services charge we also recommend that you book an appointment through one of our off-sites.
