Entering the United States to live, work, and play is a dream for millions of people around the globe. Unfortunately, obtaining legal status in the country is not easy. The American immigration system is notoriously complex, and some even say it is broken. Seeking entry involves an extremely complicated process and for individuals facing deportation, it is not only challenging, but presents many other issues. An Arlington Heights immigration attorney can help individuals with these issues and guide them through the system with the understanding and compassion they deserve.
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is one that has come under immense fire lately, and it is one that is constantly changing. Individuals who wish to still submit a DACA application, or who are in the middle of the process and want to know about their status, should speak to an Arlington Heights immigration attorney who can advise on the options available.
The United States immigration system allows people to apply for a number of different waivers. The provisional waiver of unlawful presence is one of the most common. Provisional waivers of unlawful presence are best suited for individuals that have entered the country illegally and that are married to, or children of, lawful permanent residents. Permanent residents can apply for a green card for these loved ones if they qualify, and the waiting period will be waived. Provisional waivers are also available for individuals that can show extreme hardship. Although provisional waivers are the most common type available, an Arlington Heights immigration attorney can help individuals determine which type of waiver is best for them.
There are many instances in which someone may need to adjust his or her immigration status. Family members of lawful permanent residents or American citizens may apply for a green card using the I-130 form. Refugees can also apply to change their status, and employees can ask their employers to help them adjust their status.
Individuals who want to enter the United States to work have a number of options. They can apply for a temporary work visa, or they may apply for an employment-based green card. All options have many different requirements that must be met, but an immigration lawyer can help individuals determine which one is best for them.
Facing deportation is the biggest fear of many immigrants. Although the situation may seem hopeless, it is not. There are many defenses available to those in fear of being deported, and an immigration lawyer will know what those are.

Great work from Brittni Rivera, extremely professional. I highly recommend to go with them especially for U visa cases.
Both Jake, who has since relocated, and Lauren (current) are a saving grace to those who they’ve helped. Lauren, who I am working with currently, cannot be more attentive, understanding, and humble in the work and reassurance she gives you. She never makes you feel like you are any less due to your circumstance, she speaks to you more humanely and with compassion more than even a friend or family may. If you’re in the market for an attorney that cares, does her best to accommodate your circumstance and limitations while working your case, I can not recommend enough Lauren.…
Very intelligent, very much helpful, and always answer any question in your mind. Always immediate replies to my questions. Very much trustful. Thank u very much.
Simply put, I shouldn't be here. I had a really complex immigration case and all the firms that we consulted with told us that I virtually had no chance of staying here in the United States for my son. All except Kriezelman Burton.
