Technology has found a number of inroads into immigration legal work, with various automation tools and guided walk-throughs set up to help those who are undocumented and asylum seekers apply for relevant visas and immigration status changes.

The tool, called “Make A Plan” and hosted by legal tech nonprofit Immi, steps users through some of the key considerations they may need to handle quickly should they face deportation.
