There are many organizations that will give information about bringing your spouse to the U.S.

There are lots of attorneys listed in Chicago who specialize in immigration law. I suggest you look at that list. We are also in Chicago, so that is an option too.


How long it will take, how much it will cost, and whether it will even be possible depend on many, many factors. For example, whether your husband is in the U.S. now, his immigration history, and any criminal history.

An immigration attorney can help you assess your husband's admissibility and advise you on what procedures and papers will be involved.
