Immigration law deals with individuals who are seeking temporary or permanent legal status in the United States. Immigration Paralegals are responsible for finding immigrant and non-immigrant visa alternatives, and also assist clients who want to become naturalized citizens.
They sometimes perform highly-specialized services such as determining whether clients requesting asylum are eligible for refugee status, and helping clients who seek temporary residence show that they will not violate their visas. Other duties of the Immigration Paralegal may include drafting and coordinating the filing of applications, petitions, letters and affidavits, as well as the translation of foreign documents and evaluating the equivalency of foreign degrees. The Immigration Paralegal salary varies based on experience.
