Citizenship

Citizenship is a major milestone for foreign nationals who wish to permanently remain in the United States. Generally, once an individual becomes a citizen, they cannot be removed from the U.S. With our attention to consistency in all applications sent to the government and careful case monitoring, our Chicago immigration lawyers can help you become a citizen.

Removal

A foreign national who is in the United Stated may be placed into removal proceedings for being inadmissible or deportable. Sometimes, aliens in removal proceedings may be eligible for relief from deportation based on special circumstances or a fear of persecution in their home country. This complex process requires specialized knowledge from our immigration lawyers who can help you in immigration court to defend against charges of removability or deportability.

LGBT Immigration Issues

LGBT foreign nationals face exceptional challenges in the immigration system. Even though the United States no longer discriminates against same-sex couples, many countries do. Laws in such countries criminalize same-sex relationships, and petitioning for a same-sex fiancé or spouse often presents unique challenges. If you are a gay, lesbian, queer, or transsexual person and would like to live with your loved one in the United States, contact our office for a consultation to review the options available to your partner.

Visas

With approximately 30 types of nonimmigrant classifications, navigating the process of obtaining a work visa can be challenging for individuals and employers alike. Once a foreign national is admitted into the United States, they must maintain the status consistent with the conditions of the alien’s admission. There is a significant amount of information concerning each visa type. The experienced immigration attorneys at Zneimer & Zneimer, P.C can help with extension of stay, change of status, and guide you through the requirements for H-1B visas, L-1 visas, E Treaty visas, among many others.

Asylum

New and constantly changing regulations have made asylum cases an especially challenging matter for persecuted individuals wishing to stay in the United States. Contact our office for a consultation with our lawyers who can advise on your case and make recommendations for pursuing asylum status. Our experienced immigration attorneys have experience in both affirmative and defensive immigration and will work closely with you to build a strong case.
