The mild climate and bustling economy in Monterey County attract people from all over the country and the world. Gonzales has the additional lure of a small town close to a sprawling urban area — an attractive combination. When people come here from overseas, there are always immigration issues; it is just a matter of degree.
At Miranda, Magden & Miranda, we provide a full range of immigration services. We work diligently on the process for people who want to come here to live, work, study, and build a future. Many immigrants come on a temporary basis, thinking they will return to their former countries someday. But “someday” never comes, so they look to upgrade their immigration status. Other people have issues with deportation and removal procedures. Our lawyers advocate for all these people in all these situations.
Most of the professionals at Miranda, Magden & Miranda have not been in America for more than a few generations. We feel a strong sense of duty to help immigrants who want to come here and improve their lives. Some possible options include:
Whether the process must begin here in the United States or in your country of origin, our experienced attorneys know the right buttons to push. We do more than file paperwork and hope for the best. We are a strong voice for you throughout the process, and we also offer ongoing legal advice for you and your family.
After immigrants have had a taste of life in California, most of them do not want to go anywhere else. At Miranda, Magden & Miranda, status upgrades make up a significant percentage of our immigration law practice.
We handle things like family petitions and green card applications.
Our clients also have a very high citizenship test pass rate. We assist with the complex application, so it does not draw unwanted attention. We work with you on interview skills and on the components of the citizenship test itself.
Not all immigration stories have happy endings. For the most part, California’s government is extremely immigrant-friendly. But there are always exceptions.
Without a status upgrade, deportation and removal is always a possibility. Some common grounds for these proceedings include:
That last bullet could include technical violations, such as failure to note a change of address.
In many cases, the government’s evidence is weak and circumstantial. Since the government has the burden of proof in some cases, it is best to put these deportation efforts to the test. In other situations, an agreed resolution, like voluntary departure, may be best. If a person leaves the country voluntarily, the waiting period to come back may be shorter.
Sooner or later, every noncitizen needs legal representation. For a confidential consultation with an experienced immigration attorney in Gonzales, contact Miranda, Magden & Miranda LLP. After-hours visits are available.
Patricia has been so helpful and provided excellent service. My husband and I are so grateful for all the help she has provided to help me immigrate to the United States. We really could not have gotten through it without her help. A big thank you to Patricia\'s assistant, Ingrid as well for always being prompt with responses and helping us get all the paperwork ready at each stage. I highly recommend Patricia for anyone who needs immigration help.
Thank you Miranda and team for the excellent service provided. Miranda is a compassionate, understating, extremely knowledgeable and professional attorney. Her team was always on top of everything making my legal process less stressful. I could never thank Miranda and her assistant Ingrid for holding my hand throughout this difficult process (literally). Miranda is one of the BEST immigration lawyers ever! I would definitely recommend her.
They represented my custody case and handled it like it is their own case and they are best in Monterey County.
The entire team at MMM are superstars! I appreciate all the time and prep that went into my original case many years ago. And now recently, I asked for some help on a follow-up custody matter that I felt I could handle myself but just needed their expertise to properly represent all the important details. They are knowledgeable, extremely thorough, and prepared me for every possible scenario. I can't thank them enough!
My partner and I sought legal advice on bringing my fiance' to the United States with this office after having called a few immigration attorney offices around Monterey County. Having never sought legal advice before it was a refreshing experience in which we both really felt that Patricia listened intently to our goals and needs, and then not only gave us thorough advice, but also she really showed a lot of empathy with our situation and all the challenges we faced in what we trying to do. I would definitely recommend this office for anyone who is unclear about what..
Working with Patricia was a professional encounter unlike any other, an absolute 5-star experience. From the first moment, we walked into our consultation until the moment our case was closed and my husband walked away with his permanent resident card Patricia was communicative, professional, and thorough. Her team contacted us every step of the way providing valuable process and law changes we would not have been able to catch if we tried to navigate this endeavor alone. Patricia answered our endless question stream with thoughtfulness and care, calling us countless times to ensure we were clear on every piece of..
