Navigating the complex immigration system can be frustrating. Whether you are an employer who seeks to hire a foreign worker, someone who wishes to bring a family member to the United States, or simply one entangled in the immigration system for one reason or another, it is important that you have an experienced Evanston immigration lawyer to help you. At Kriezelman Burton & Associates, we have a team of dedicated immigration lawyers, and you cannot go wrong in having us represent you.

We practice in all areas of immigration and nationality law, including the following:

Employment Immigration

If you are an American company that has foreign workers working for you or wishes to hire non-citizens, then there are additional employment and labor laws that you must comply with. These laws govern both how you recruit foreign workers if you cannot find American workers to do the job and how to keep records of those foreign workers. Failure to comply with these laws can result in penalties such as fines, criminal prosecution, or not being considered for government contracts.

Obtaining authorization to hire a foreign worker is not easy, as many employers find out. Rather, the process is complicated, requiring meeting strict requirements by both the employer and the prospective foreign worker. At Kriezelman Burton & Associates, we have experienced employment immigration lawyers who know exactly what needs to be done to successfully navigate the complex immigration system.

Family Immigration

A U.S. citizen or green card holder can petition the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to have their qualifying relatives obtain a green card. Qualifying relatives are usually the spouse, child, sibling, or parent of a United States citizen or of the green card holder. For an individual in any of these relationships to obtain a green card, the U.S. citizen or green card holder must first file Form I-130 Relative Petition with USCIS. This petition should be accompanied by proof of the existence of the relationship, and, in many cases, both the petitioner and relative may be required to appear for an interview. If the petitioner and relative are in the United States, they may be called for a joint interview though it is possible for the examining officer to separate the couple being interviewed. In all these situations, it is important to have the service of an experienced immigration lawyer on your side.

Removal Proceedings and Appeals

Being placed in removal proceedings is a very stressful and often a traumatic experience for some. These are proceedings before an Immigration Judge where the government is required to show that the person they have targeted is in the country illegally and should be deported. The person will also be given an opportunity to show why they should not be deported. In many cases, the person in removal proceedings is held in custody. It is important to retain the services of an experienced removal proceedings lawyer from Kriezelman Burton & Associates to mount an aggressive defense for you, or to appeal your case if you have been ordered deported.
