MIAMI (AP) - A South Florida native and former White House fellow is taking the lead of a tech startup aimed at becoming the "TurboTax" of the immigration process.
A former U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services chief founded Clearpath in 2009 as a private sector solution to the United States' complex visa application process.
Incoming CEO Felice Gorordo took the reins this week. He says the goal is to provide a simple process that is cheaper than going to an attorney. The Clearpath fees generally range from about $70 and $200. Government fees are additional. Gorordo said those with complicated cases should still seek professional legal help, and the Clearpath website refers those who don't appear to be eligible for the applications they are attempting to file to the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
