Bridgeport Immigration Lawyers

When agents from the U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) come knocking, or when you have an immigration need that requires dealing with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), it is best to have an experienced immigration lawyer to help you. At Kriezelman Burton & Associates, we have a team of experienced immigration lawyers who help clients in the Chicago area in addressing their immigration issues or needs.

Areas of Practice and What We Can Do for You

We provide services in all areas of immigration and nationality law. The bulk of our work covers employment immigration, family immigration, and removal proceedings. In all these areas, we have a team of experienced lawyers who know the law and skillfully find solutions for our satisfied clients – as we can do for you.

Family Immigration

U.S. immigration law allows relatives of U.S. citizens and green card holders to obtain green cards based on that family relationship. However, not all relatives qualify, but spouses, children, siblings, and parents of U.S. citizens and green card holders generally do qualify. For these close relatives of U.S. citizens or green card holders to obtain their green cards, the U.S. citizen or green card holder must first file a Form I-130 petition with USCIS. If it is a U.S. citizen filing the I-130 petition, then the petition can be concurrently filed together with a green card application of the relative. If the I-130 petition is being filed by a green card holder, then the I-130 petition must be approved first before the relative applies for their green card. Going through the complicated immigration process to obtain any of these visas can be frustrating. Always hire an experienced immigration lawyer to help you.

Employment Immigration

American companies are allowed under U.S. immigration and labor laws to recruit and bring foreign workers to work for them. To do this, the American employer must first get approval from the USCIS. The foreign worker must also meet certain requirements. The process of bringing a foreign worker to work in the U.S. begins with the employer filing a petition with USCIS. The petition would request for the prospective foreign employee to be given a permanent or temporary work visa.

Companies that hire foreign workers must comply with additional labor and employment laws. These laws and regulations are intended to make sure the employer has proper employment records covering these foreign workers. One of the areas that is frequently investigated is non-compliance with I-9 requirements. An employer found to be in violation of these compliance laws is subject to serious penalties. At Kriezelman Burton & Associates, we represent companies to ensure compliance with immigration laws and obtain visas for employees.
