Millions of individuals from various parts of the world dream of migrating to the United States each year, all for their own personal reasons. Some individuals desire to achieve a better education. Others hope to gain religious freedom. And others still hope to start a new life with more opportunities for themselves and their family members. “The American Dream” is alive and well, yet obtaining it is much more difficult than it used to be. Now, there are books of complex laws to adhere to, stacks of paperwork to file correctly, and board rooms of individuals to meet and convince that you are worthy of the American Dream. Sadly, many individuals make it through the first steps of the visa or green card application process, and then simply give up.
If an individual does not know U.S. immigration law as intricately the Cicero, IL immigration attorneys at Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC do, navigating the immigration process can be extremely frustrating and tiring. From correctly filling out intensive applications to meeting stringent eligibility requirements, individuals who hope to migrate to the U.S. must comply exactly with the requirements set forth by the U.S. entities that govern immigration laws, including U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the U.S. Department of State (DOS). Because of how easy it can be to file an application incorrectly, our Cicero immigration lawyers use their knowledge and intricate understanding of the law to help individuals around the world file for U.S. citizenship or residency, and thereby fulfill their goal of living the American Dream.
While one’s dream of moving to the U.S. may be a big one, many find that they are easily off-put by how difficult applying for a visa or green card proves to be. Without adequate legal representation, an adverse decision can mean the end of immigration goals entirely. However, our Cicero, IL immigration lawyers strive to help individuals work through any problems they face throughout the application and immigration process. Some of the more common issues that we deal with include:
Unfortunately, once an individual is in the United States, their problems do not end there. Even if a foreign national is successful in obtaining a visa or green card, a number of legal issues can arise that may affect their status in the future. Some of those issues include:
Our Cicero, IL immigration lawyers regularly assist clients with each of these issues, and strive to help each client achieve the U.S. residency documentation that they desire.
Although our office is located in Cicero, IL, we regularly travel to other areas throughout Illinois and the country to help individuals resolve their immigration issues.
Many individuals feel confident in applying for a visa or green card on their own, but these individuals fail to take into account the complex book of laws governing immigration. Individuals who choose the DIY route often find that they have to start the application process over several times because of one entry error, or that they cannot reapply after failing to meet one or two minor eligibility requirements. More unfortunate is when individuals already in the United States on a work or school visa fail to maintain eligibility requirements, and so have to leave before their time was supposed to be up. Should an individual who is already in the U.S. receive an adverse determination, they could face deportation, civil fines, and criminal penalties. In order to avoid those mistakes altogether, it is in the best interest of any foreign national who hopes to travel to the U.S. to do so with the assistance of an immigration attorney.
The Cicero, IL immigration attorneys at Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC have been providing individuals with legal representation and assistance with their immigration needs for over 40 years.

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.
