Immigration Attorneys Chicago

Immigration laws in the United States are extremely complex, and it can be difficult for the average person to try and navigate any kind of immigration issue successfully. When you have any type of immigration matter requiring legal counsel, make sure to hire the immigration attorneys in Chicago at Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC.

Our firm employs a number of lawyers who are strictly dedicated to immigration cases and have a thorough understanding of the federal laws involved in these situations. We handle a wide variety of issues relating to immigration, so you can be confident that you will be getting the most effective legal representation for every single issue you will encounter.

Types of Immigration Cases

Among the many kinds of immigration cases that Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC handles, deportation defense relates to removal proceedings. In some cases, people may actually be able to argue that they are not removable as they have been charged, and you may be able to place the burden on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to present evidence demonstrating that you actually are removable.

Other common defenses in these cases could relate to possible I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, issues, criminal or noncriminal waivers, and asylum claims. We also have experience helping people obtain U visas for termination of removal proceedings, applications under Deferred Action for Certain Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and possible Temporary Protected Status (TPS) protection.

We also assist clients with many kinds of visa applications and obtaining permanent resident cards or green cards. Foreign nationals can be eligible for green cards through their family members, employers, or the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program. 

We also handle investor visas and trader visas. Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC also represents clients in matters concerning the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which creates a special route to immigration status for certain types of battered non-citizens.

Adverse decisions made by immigration judges can lead to appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), the highest administrative body for the interpretation and application of immigration laws. Even when the BIA denies an appeal, a case can still be brought before a Federal Court of Appeals for additional review.

Our firm also assists clients seeking political asylum, which is often claimed by an individual who is fleeing their home country and entering or requesting entry into the United States while applying for protection, so they are not forced to return to their home country. To qualify for asylum, an individual will have to establish that they are a refugee who is unwilling or unable to go back to their country of nationality because of persecution or fear of persecution because of membership in a particular social group, religion, race, nationality, or political opinion.

Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC represents individuals seeking family-based immigration services, such as United States citizens petitioning for spouses, children, parents, siblings, or fiancé(e)s. We also help clients with various employer compliance issues, including the completion of Form I-9s.

Our firm has experience with deferred action and DACA claims, which the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas held are illegal, but DHS continues to accept filings for both initial and renewal DACA requests. We can also seek U visas for the victims of crimes who suffered mental or physical abuse and are now assisting law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of the criminal activity.
