Many of clients seek entry to the United States to join a family member who already reside here and may already be a citizen of the United States as well. The goal is typical of most immigrants. Unite with family members and live as a family. To achieve this goal on a permanent basis, the path is straightforward:

The Montefalcon Law Offices offer services that help clients achieve the important goal of uniting their family. They carefully prepare each type of application with special attention to each important detail.



Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for temporary stay, or an immigrant visa for permanent residence.

Visitor visas are nonimmigrant visas for persons who want to enter the United States temporarily:

  • for business (visa category B-1)
  • tourism, pleasure or visiting (visa category B-2)
  • or a combination of both purposes

Permanent Residence & Citizenship


A green card offers proof that its holder is a lawful permanent resident who has been granted immigration benefits which include permission to live and work in the United States.



Citizenship is the highest form of immigration status that may be conferred upon an individual in the United States.  While some of us acquire citizenship by birth, and others by having a parent who is a citizen, many of us acquire citizenship through the process of naturalization.  We routinely represent clients in asserting claims of citizenship by birth and naturalization.

Deportation Defense


The worst case scenario for an immigrant seeking to stay in the United States is the service of a Notice to Appear (NTA). This document indicates that you may be deported from the country, and requires you to defend yourself in immigration court. The Montefalcon Law Offices can assist all individuals in this difficult situation.


If you or a family member has any of the needs mentioned above, the Montefalcon Law Offices can help you achieve your needs and goals. Alberto Montefalcon offers knowledge and experience with a personal touch unparalleled in the Sacramento area.

   “I recently had to file for bankruptcy, which I had been contemplating for more than a year.  Once I decided to find out more information, I was referred to Alberto Montefalcon from a trusted friend.  For something this important, I needed to know that the person I was going to discuss my personal financial situation with was known for their professionalism, trustworthiness, integrity, and overall service.  Upon meeting Alberto, there was something about him that set my anxiety and confidence on what I was looking for in a lawyer at ease. Right off the bat I was impressed on how well he simply listened.  Alberto made sure he heard my situation before coming up with the best options for me.  This was also important, because there isn’t a one size fits all to determining if bankruptcy is right.  Once I decided which route was best for me, and after hearing my options, Alberto handled the entire process flawlessly.  It started with a caring attitude, godly character, and the right amount of communication that made the process easier to get through.  It is said that the best service is often referred, and I trust that anyone who decides to work with Alberto will feel very comfortable, and satisfied with his services, legal knowledge and advice.  Alberto is more than my lawyer in matters pertaining, I consider him a friend now.” – Mark D.
