UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS (WCIA) — Valentine’s Day is a day to hold loved ones close, but some people are still looking for a way to do that.

It’s why the New American Welcome Center on campus partnered with the Immigration Project offering a couples immigration legal clinic.

For $25, people can have a consultation with a legal representative for any cases involving family immigration.

Organizers say Valentine’s Day is an especially important time to help couples and families who need to petition to stay together.

The Immigration Project offers legal help to about 100,000 immigrants in central and southern Illinois.
