Law Centre's immigration legal advice suspended at present

Please note that due to a restriction in funding, from 1 April 2015 the Law Centre is unable, until further funding is secured, to provide specialist legal advice and assistance on immigration matters. 

The Law Centre continues to provide legal advice and assistance in relation to children and young people who are the victims of human trafficking.  Please also note that the Law Centre also continues to provide legal advice and assistance on social security, employment, community care and mental health issues, including as these issues relate to migrants and those affected by immigration law. 

Should you require legal advice and assistance with an immigration matter, please go to Law Society NI: www.lawsoc-ni.org, telephone 028 9023 1614.
