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.

One of my relatives just received her Green Card and the credit goes to Kevin Raica and his Paralegal, Aga Bogdanowicz. The final “Adjust Status Petition” including the supporting documentation was 128 pages long! There is no way we could have compiled this level of detail much less have it be error free on our own. The whole process took around 8 months which is to be expected; however, the Petition package was so complete that no interview was required. If you ever have need of immigration legal service you just can’t go wrong with Kevin Raica and the immigration…
