Federal government shutdown: impact on immigration

The shutdown of the federal government has not affected most operations at the USCIS. Interviews and appointments at USCIS remain as scheduled unless otherwise noted.

The Department of Labor’s Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) has temporarily suspended operations while the shutdown remains in effect. Employment-based immigration cases which require certification by the Department of Labor may be affected.

Operations at the Immigration Court have also been affected by the shutdown, but please contact your individual attorney if you have questions about the status of your hearing.  Please do not make any assumptions about the status of your hearing without talking to an attorney.

Schedule A Consultation!

As we respond to the current events surrounding COVID-19, the health and safety of our clients and staff remains paramount. Effective March 21, 2020 until April 7, 2020, we remain open for business, as an essential service per Governor Pritzker’s March 20, 2020 “Stay at Home” Executive Order. However, we are temporarily suspending in-person client services at our office. Instead, we are offering user-friendly web-based video conferencing and regular teleconference appointments. The video conferencing feature is simple to use for those with internet access and comes at no extra charge to our clients -- we encourage its use whenever possible.

Please contact your attorney to set this up via email or call us at 312-332-2550 to set up a video conferencing consultation.

Thank you,

The KB&A Team
