Chicago Immigration Attorney

The Law Offices of Robert D. Ahlgren and Associates, P.C., is a Chicago immigration law firm committed to serving clients in Chicagoland and across the United States. Active since 1973, Ahlgren and Associates has worked with intense dedication to meet our clients’ needs as they travel the road to legal immigrant status and cope with other immigration law issues in the United States.

Ahlgren is a full-service law firm representing individuals and families across a broad spectrum of immigration matters. As a full-service firm, we serve clients’ needs in

  • Family Cases – Family cases generally relate to obtaining a visa for a closely related family member of a U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident,  such as a spouse, child, or parent. 
  • Adjustment of Status – The process by which one applies for Lawful Permanent Resident Status
  • Consular Processing Applications – The application process for a U.S. green card when applying from outside the territory of the United States.
  • Removal (Deportation) Defense – Removal defense is the act of representing and advocating for an immigrant facing deportation from the United States. For many, this process involves appearing before an immigration judge in immigration court.
  • U.S. Citizenship and Naturalization – A wide variety of issues fall under this category. Still, if you have had trouble with citizenship or naturalization, we can help resolve the problem and assist you in meeting the requirements of the USCIS.
  • Fiancé Visas and K-1 Visas – Fiancé and K-1 visas rely on your intent to be married within 90 days of the Fiancé’s entry into the country. It is technically a nonimmigrant visa, but it allows your fiancé to enter the country to marry. 
  • Humanitarian Relief – Various kinds of humanitarian relief are available in immigration law. Humanitarian parole allows foreign nationals to travel to the U.S. in case of an emergency or public interest reasons. In other cases, the immigrant may be needed to provide support to a relative in the U.S. Victims of human trafficking, political repression, and similar bases for asylum may also be eligible for humanitarian relief. 
  • Nonimmigrant Visas – Nonimmigrant visas allow foreign nationals to enter the U.S. temporarily for business, tourism, medical treatment, and certain kinds of employment. 
  • Victim of Crime Applications – The victim of criminal activity visa or U visa allows for victims who have suffered mental or physical abuse and are helpful in an investigation. It is available, for example, to victims of trafficking and others under the Women’s Protection Act.
  • Inadmissibility Waivers – This process asks the federal government to, in essence, forgive you for whatever conduct you engaged in that makes you inadmissible to the U.S. Generally, proof of extreme hardship that will occur due to your deportation is a requirement.
  • Appeals – Appealing an immigration decision is highly complex and involves working with the federal courts and, on occasion, the Board of Immigration Appeals.
