If you need legal help or have a question about pending litigation, our office cannot intervene. The separation of powers between the legislative branch (Congress) and the judicial branch, where legal issues are decided prohibits our office from intervening. This includes questions about criminal trials or imprisonment, deportation proceedings, child custody issues, and civil lawsuits.
