BIA / Immigration Advice

BHITC is an accredited site in Cleveland for providing non-legal assistance with immigration (BIA) issues and concerns. The Bureau of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and the Department of Homeland Security have trained BHITC staff to assist immigrants in completing the following processes:

  • Applying for US Citizenship
  • Applying for Legal Permanent Residence
  • Applying for travel documents
  • Petitioning for refugee/asylee and immigrant relatives

BHITC fees for these services are often minimal ($25-75).  Assistance for additional forms is provided at a fee per service rate.

To schedule an appointment to discuss your immigration concern, contact Eileen Wilson at (216) 281-4673 or refugeeinfo@buildinghopeinthecity.org.
