Introducing the Older Adult Legal Program at JAMLAC

by | Mar 18, 2024 | Uncategorized

In our continuous effort to serve the diverse needs of our community, JAMLAC is proud to unveil our newest initiative to our community: the Older Adult Legal Program. This program is specifically designed to address the unique legal challenges faced by older adults, offering compassionate and comprehensive support to ensure their rights and well-being are protected.

A Glimpse into Our Services

The Older Adult Legal Program at JAMLAC is set to provide a wide array of legal services, tailored to meet the specific needs of our older adult community members. Here’s what we’re offering:

  • End-of-Life Documents: We assist with drafting wills to ensure your final wishes are honored, creating powers of attorney to designate a trusted individual for legal decisions, and preparing advanced directives to communicate your healthcare preferences.
  • Family Law Matters: Our team offers support through the complexities of divorce, ensuring dignity and respect throughout the process. Additionally, we help older adults or grandparents in seeking allocation of parental responsibilities, ensuring they can maintain a meaningful role in their grandchildren’s lives.
  • Guardianship and Protection Orders: We provide the essential legal frameworks to safeguard the rights and well-being of older adults, including establishing guardianship and securing protection orders when necessary.
  • Immigration Services: Recognizing the diverse backgrounds of our community, we offer specialized immigration services to ensure all older adults have access to the legal support they need, irrespective of their immigration status.
    • Residency renewals (I-90), the naturalization process (N-400), including medical certifications for disability exceptions (N-648), VAWAs, U-visas, and SIJS cases (in case you are caring for a child that does not have status).

Our Commitment to Empowerment

The launch of the Older Adult Legal Program marks a significant milestone in our mission to empower and protect the most vulnerable among us. By providing these critical legal services, we aim to ensure that older adults can navigate the challenges of later life with dignity, security, and peace of mind.

We are deeply committed to making a positive impact in the lives of older adults in our community. This program represents not just our dedication to legal assistance, but our belief in justice, equality, and the value of every individual, regardless of age.

As we move forward, we are filled with optimism for the positive changes the Older Adult Legal Program will bring. We invite you to join us in supporting this vital initiative, whether through spreading the word, volunteering, or contributing to our mission in any way you can.
