Anyone who has had to deal with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) knows dealing with the agency can be both frustrating and complex, even in some of the services one might expect to be simple and straightforward. However, working with an immigration lawyer in Chicago, IL, such as we have with our experienced team, can help to make the experience less daunting and more effective in obtaining the benefit or services you seek. At Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC, we handle a variety of immigration matters ranging from visas and citizenship issues to removal and deportation defense. We also take cases in Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
As noted above, the immigration process can be both frustrating and complex, besides taking a long time to resolve some of the immigration problems. Having an attorney with experience handling your issue can make a difference as they would know how to have the issue resolved in the quickest time possible and without unnecessary delay.
Many of the delays and some of the denials of applications for immigration benefits are usually the product of poor document preparation or presentation. USCIS examiners handle a large number of cases and, sometimes, approval or denial of the case can simply be a question of how the case is presented.
Although we offer services in all immigration law related areas, some of the most common services requested from our clients include the following:
Many immigrants dream of one day becoming U.S. citizens, and when that time to apply comes around, we are able to assist many of them to apply and successfully get their citizenship approved. This is particularly the case for those individuals who may not know about the process, but in our routine intake consultation, we are able to identify and have addressed issues that can potentially lead to denial of their application.
U.S. immigration law allows a foreign-born person to become a legal permanent resident or LPR, more commonly known as a green card holder. A green card holder has the right to permanently live in the United States legally, and that status allows them to work as well. A green card can be obtained through a qualifying family relationship or through employment. In either case, the process is rigorous and complex, requiring the services of an experienced immigration lawyer.
For those found to be in the United States without valid legal status, the government makes every effort to have them deported, and this is usually done in what is known as “removal proceedings.” These are proceedings where the government makes the case why a person they believe is in the United States illegally should be deported. That person will then have an opportunity to make their case why they should not be deported. We routinely help clients beat back the government’s effort to have them deported and are here for you as well.

One of my relatives just received her Green Card and the credit goes to Kevin Raica and his Paralegal, Aga Bogdanowicz. The final “Adjust Status Petition” including the supporting documentation was 128 pages long! There is no way we could have compiled this level of detail much less have it be error free on our own. The whole process took around 8 months which is to be expected; however, the Petition package was so complete that no interview was required. If you ever have need of immigration legal service you just can’t go wrong with Kevin Raica and the immigration…
