Immigration Law for Paralegals, 3rd Ed.

New Edition Coming in Late October

Immigration Law for Paralegals, 3rd Edition, is an indispensable and practical guide on U.S. immigration, citizenship, and visa procedures for instructing and training students or anyone interested in a career as an immigration paralegal or legal assistant.

Contents include:

  • Interviewing, gathering information, case management, and document preparation techniques.
  • Analysis of temporary and permanent employment visas.
  • Family-based petitions, political asylum, naturalization.
  • Samples of completed applications, glossary, and appendices.

The third edition also includes:

  • New chapter on court litigation
  • Updated forms
  • Expanded discussion on H-2Bs, EB-2s, and regional centers
  • New test standards for the current naturalization process
  • and more!

Authors Maria I. Casablanca and Gloria Roa Bodin offer real life, hypothetical situations at the end of each chapter, allowing paralegals to visualize actual problems and issues that arise when processing a case. Furthermore, in responding to the hypothetical situations, paralegals will look to the U.S. immigration statutes, rules and regulations, and precedent and administrative policies to resolve issues. In addition, each section contains a completed sample application, definition of legal terms, and exercised modeled after tasks paralegals may encounter on the job, including the preparation of relative petitions (Form I-130) and the adjustment of a status package (Forms I-485, G-325A, I-131, I-765, I-864A, and G-28). In keeping with the concise format of each chapter, excerpts from federal, AAO, and BIA decisions will be cited or footnoted where relevant.

The Glossary and Appendices include immigration law resources; USCIS Local, regional, and service center addresses; questions and answers for the naturalization exam; blank forms; credential evaluation sample request forms and a list of agencies; sample color photograph specifications, sample medical form (I-688); and IRS Individual Tax ID Number Request (SS-4).
