In this article we will explain appeals to the Illinois Supreme Court. Let’s start by explaining the structure of the Illinois court system.
The purpose of this article is to explain Form I-130, the Petition for Alien Relative, as well as to describe some changes to Form I-130 that occurred in 2017. Form I-130 is used by American citizens or permanent residents to sponsor a relative’s the Visa petition. It establishes the familial relationship between the U.S. citizen or permanent resident and the person seeking a Visa, as well as the citizen's or resident’s intention to assist the non-resident in immigrating to America. Form I-130 is a prerequisite to familial Visa petitions. The Visa petition itself is filed as a separate form (Form I-485).
On June 26, 2017, the Supreme Court agreed to hear oral arguments over President Trump’s revised travel ban. Oral arguments will be held in the session that begins in October of 2017. In the meantime, the Supreme Court has partially lifted the lower courts’ preliminary injunctions that had prevented the travel ban from going into effect.
Trump issued the initial travel ban as an executive order which prevented individuals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen and Iraq from entering the United States for 90 days. The executive order also prevented refugees from entering the U.S. for 120 days. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s ruling preventing this initial ban from going into effect.
