Who We Are

The Battered Immigrant Project (BIP) is a specialized project with Legal Aid of North Carolina's Domestic Violence Prevention Initiative (DVPI). The Battered Immigrant Project (BIP) provides comprehensive and culturally appropriate legal services to battered immigrants across the state of North Carolina, such as legal assistance with:

Domestic violence protective orders
Family law issues
Public benefits
Immigration issues
 

As domestic violence experts, LANC's BIP attorneys are in a unique position to assist battered immigrants with these types of cases.  BIP attorneys work with domestic violence advocates across the state to provide them with information about the rights of battered immigrants. Additionally, due to the constantly changing and regulatory nature of immigration law, it is necessary to have specially trained immigration attorneys as part of the DVPI corps of attorneys.  Although there are several methods for an undocumented battered immigrant to obtain legal immigration status, it is virtually impossible to obtain immigration status without the assistance of an attorney.   
 

To request assistance, call BIP's toll-free telephone:  866 204-7612 (bilingual English and Spanish)
 

Please note that Legal Aid of NC (LANC) does not provide legal assistance via E-mail. Rather, please telephone or come to the LANC office to request assistance.
