Virtual Immigration Paralegals for Lawyers

ON DEMAND SUPPORT FOR YOUR PRACTICE AREA.

U.S. immigration law is complex and highly regulated. Whether your clients are reuniting with relatives who live in different countries, seeking asylum from hardship, fighting deportation, studying in the U.S., investing in the U.S. economy, or hiring valuable employees, immigration attorneys require specialized paralegal assistance to effectively communicate with clients, collect information, and timely prepare immigration petitions and applications. Our immigration paralegals have specialized knowledge in USCIS procedures, Consular Processing for various countries, and federal immigration court.

Equivity provides US-based virtual immigration paralegals and legal secretaries with years of experience assisting immigration attorneys. Our on-demand paralegals can assist your firm with every step of the immigration process including client communications, gathering, organizing, and assembling documents and information, preparing, and completing immigration forms, assisting with submissions, fee payment and case monitoring.

All virtual paralegals are Equivity employees, not independent contractors, providing you with the accountability, privacy and security assurances that come with a dedicated employee, while avoiding payroll, workers’ compensation, benefits and recruiting costs.

Our service is also designed to be adaptable to the needs of your practice. We offer a wide range of scalable plans so that you can increase or decrease your hours as the need arises. If you’re looking for a retainer-style arrangement, select our annual plan, which allows you to use hours over the course of 365 days. Busier than expected?  Not a problem. You can always add more hours and we’re happy to add new paralegals to your team.
