Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama (HICA) provides a wide range of services to the growing immigrant Latino community in Alabama and the Southeast.

Services include DACA, N-400, VAWA, Consular Processing, Adjustment of Status, Lawful Permanent Resident ("Green Card") renewal, U-Visa, and other related family immigration matters. HICA will be processing DAPA applications if DAPA becomes available. HICA is a BIA recognized organization with one attorney and three BIA partially accredited staff members.
