For over 25 years, Paul J. Alvarado has helped clients overcome obstacles to obtaining lawful permanent or temporary immigration status in the U.S. I have more than 25 years of experience with successful visa petitions, applications for other immigration benefits and defensive strategies for individuals confronted with a threat of deportation. I approach every case from the standpoint of achieving my clients’ ultimate goals, regardless of how much work or time it takes.
Most individuals immigrate to the United States through family-based immigration. U.S. citizens can petition for the following family members to immigrate to the United States:
Permanent residents can petition only for spouses, minor children and unmarried sons and daughters over 21. I can analyze eligibility for a family-sponsored immigration petition in your case and advise on the documentation needed. My firm files and follows up on necessary paperwork with the government agencies involved to make sure your case is on track and headed toward successful completion.
I assist immigrants pursuing employment-based or investment-based immigration. This includes employers’ petitions on behalf of highly educated and skilled workers or those filling positions for which there are insufficient U.S. workers available. I also help investors seeking immigrant visas to engage in new commercial enterprises that create jobs and attract capital investment.
Political asylum is available to immigrants who are afraid to return to their countries of residence due to past persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, nationality, religion, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. Due to humanitarian concerns, refugees from certain areas of the world may be able to legally immigrate to the United States. I am experienced in assisting with applications for both these types of relief.
In providing deportation defense to clients, I aggressively seek waivers of deportability and other forms of relief, such as claims of political persecution abroad or of extreme hardship that would result from removal. Through my extensive experience, I have built a wealth of material on what it takes to mount a strong application for relief from deportation and I will put it to use in your defense.
