  • Federal government shutdown & immigration services
    January 11, 2019
    By Christina Murdoch

    As the Federal government shutdown nears the end of its third week, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ offices continue to be open and to process applications for immigration benefits such as adjustment of status and naturalization.  U.S. consulates are also continuing to process visa applications and hold visa interviews.  However, non-detained immigration courts are closed and are not accepting filings or holding hearings.  Hearings canceled due to the shutdown will be rescheduled once the government reopens.  Detained immigration courts are operating as normal.

    For more information on this or other immigration matters, please contact our office at (312) 444-1940 or to schedule a consultation.
