Equivity is looking for a part-time virtual paralegal with recent experience supporting attorneys in completing immigration petitions and applications. We are looking for paralegals with at least three years of experience in immigration law, including preparing applications for immigration, cover letters, support letters, and gathering and organizing other supporting documents. If you are an expert in this area, have previously assisted attorneys remotely, and have excellent writing skills, we want to hear from you!
We are currently seeking a virtual paralegal who has recently (within the last six months) worked in an immigration law firm and is able to prepare immigration forms for NVC and USCIS, draft correspondence, compile petitions, create and update standard immigration questionnaires, ensure prompt client communication, and ensure timely and accurate document production. The candidate must be familiar with preparing immigrant and non-immigrant visa, both employment-based (H1-B, PERM, Adjustment of Status, etc.) and family-based petitions. Experience with adjustments of status, naturalization, applications for asylum, withholding of removal, and cancelation of removal, preparing motions; preparing I-601 and I-601A waivers; and preparing applications for citizenship are a plus, but not the key skillset we are seeking.
In addition to these requirements, we are looking for a paralegal that is detail-oriented, proactive, extremely organized, and possesses strong case management skills. The ideal candidate will be very technologically adept and have excellent Word and Adobe skills. In addition, the candidate should have experience working with cloud-based practice management software. Experience in other areas of legal practice, including litigation, family law, bankruptcy, or estate planning, would be a plus.
