Green Card Lawyer Chicago IL

The path to immigration and naturalization is quicker and surer when you know and understand the law. We educate you on the law while guiding you through the process, so you understand what is needed and why. For example, for green cards through marriage, providing extensive proof that the immigrant married for love and not just for papers is crucial.  Attorney Waldman will guide you in identifying and gathering this evidence, and in preparing for the interview at USCIS.
