What Options Are Available for Undocumented Immigrants Seeking Legal Status in Chicago?

Depending on their circumstances, undocumented immigrants in Chicago and throughout Illinois may have several options available to obtain legal status.

Here are some potential avenues our skilled immigration attorney can help Chicago residents with:

  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

DACA is a program that provides temporary protection from deportation and work authorization for undocumented individuals who came to the United States as children. To qualify, applicants must meet specific criteria, including continuous residence in the U.S. since June 15, 2007, and meeting educational or military service requirements.

  • Family-Based Immigration

Undocumented immigrants may be eligible for family-based immigration if they have a qualifying family member who is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (green card holder). Eligible relationships include spouses, parents, and unmarried children under 21.

However, certain factors, such as unlawful presence in the U.S., may trigger reentry bars, and waivers may be required.

  • U Visas

Undocumented immigrants who are victims of certain crimes and have suffered substantial physical or mental abuse may be eligible for U nonimmigrant status (U visa). This visa provides temporary legal status and work authorization to qualifying crime victims cooperating with law enforcement.

  • T Visas

Victims of human trafficking, including undocumented immigrants, may be eligible for T nonimmigrant status (T visa). T visas provide temporary legal status and work authorization to victims of severe forms of trafficking who are willing to assist law enforcement in the investigation or prosecution of human trafficking crimes.

  • Asylum or Refugee Status

Undocumented immigrants who fear persecution in their home countries due to race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group may be eligible for asylum or refugee status.

Asylum seekers must apply within one year of arriving in the U.S. Refugee status is typically obtained through the resettlement process of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
