DuPage County Immigration Lawyer

Immigration law in the United States is complex and encompasses a number of different issues. Individuals may wish to obtain a work or family visa, adjust their status, or they may be preparing for the naturalization and citizenship process. In other cases, individuals may be in fear of deportation. 

No matter what immigration issue a person is facing, the system in the United States is extremely complicated. One small mistake could have serious consequences and can set a person back significantly in the process. A DuPage County immigration lawyer will ensure those mistakes do not happen and make the entire immigration process much smoother for those going through it. 

Adjustment of Status

Foreigners sometimes enter the country on a non-immigrant visa and eventually wish to change their status. In many cases, these individuals are eligible for permanent resident status and a green card. To qualify for an adjustment of status, individuals must have entered the United States legally, be physically present in the country, and meet all requirements of the category for which they are applying. There can also be no change in circumstances that would affect the adjustment of status, such as an employer that withdraws a job offer before the employment-based status is approved. 

Naturalization and Citizenship

Through the process of naturalization, a foreigner can obtain U.S. citizenship, giving them the right to vote and to leave the country for an extended period of time. This process is often overwhelming for individuals, as there are many eligibility requirements and tests that must be taken. Additionally, there is a lot of evidence that must be gathered and a lot of fact-finding involved in these cases. An attorney can determine if an individual qualifies for citizenship, and assist with their petition. 


When an individual wishes to live in the United States on a permanent basis, he or she must obtain a visa to do so. There are many different types of visas available, such as family and employment-based visas, and visas for those seeking asylum. Often individuals are eligible for applying for more than one type of visa. Determining which type of application will give them the best chance of success is often the most difficult part of applying for a visa. An immigration attorney can help individuals determine which option is right for them.

Removal and Deportation

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is aggressive in pursuing individuals for deportation. This is the scariest thing an immigrant could face and unfortunately, it happens every day. Even in these frightening times, there are defenses to deportation, and removal proceedings can be challenged. Anyone facing deportation must speak to a DuPage County immigration lawyer that can help with their case.
