Illinois Driver’s Licenses for Undocumented Immigrants

Illinois, where I live, is among the overwhelming majority of states that issue driver’s licenses to deferred action (DACA) recipients. The state went one step further recently, signing a new law in January 2013 that allows undocumented immigrants to receive Illinois driver's licenses. The license will be valid for three years, and will require training and insurance. It has limits, however, because it cannot be used as identification, for example to purchase a firearm. Backed by Democrats Governor Quinn and Mayor Emanuel, and some of Illinois' prominent Republicans, the law was applauded as a "common sense" approach that is to take effect in October.

  • Successful case for marriage-based green card

    “Milla & Associates delivers an incredible quality of legal representation and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Robert Milla, Tatiana Alonso, and their team. My husband and I entrusted them with my adjustment of status and green card application. Our case was handled very efficiently, they answered our questions at every stage and kept us informed of the next steps and developments throughout the process. Not only that, Robert is highly experienced and has an incredible understanding of immigration law on top of being genuine, personable and transparent. It is really hard to be able to find a good attorney that genuinely cares about the case, he is trustworthy, and I can tell that he does his work with his heart. My adjustment of status/green card was approved within a week from the interview, and I received my conditional green card in the mail a few days after receiving the approval notice. Robert and his team definitely made the entire process seamless. I would strongly recommend Robert Milla for anyone who is looking for a great immigration attorney and to be put in the best position possible with obtaining a green card. Thank you, Robert, for making my husband and I feel at ease as we navigated through uncharted waters. We are so grateful for you!”

    “Words just cannot express how grateful I'm to Robert Milla for all his efforts and dedication towards my case. It was a very complicated case and I had consulted a lot of attorneys in Chicago who were just not that confident in proceeding with my case. Then I met Robert and his knowledge and determination showed me light when I was almost about to give up. He was confident and Knowledgeable and did a meticulous job with my case especially when ​I had very less time to apply. I'm so relieved and happy that I got my green card within a week of the interview. Mr Robert is an amazing, humble and extremely knowledgeable attorney. He gives a lot of attention to detail. I'll never forget that he helped me when I was most in need of help. It was easy to work with ​Robert and legal assistant Maria.

  • We highly recommend Atty Robert Milla and Associates.

    “We were married in 2009 and got denied the first time it was filed. We got a lawyer to help us and it took years of waiting and nothing came out of it. Until my wife found Atty Robert Milla on the internet and with his very exceptional and successful work on immigration based cases, we decided to asked him to represent us . He told us what documents we need to re submit to follow up the case and waited for a decision. And finally my wife got her green card before Christmas this year exactly 8 years after we first filed it but Atty Robert Milla was able to get it for us , when we thought it was a hopeless case. We are so happy and very grateful for Atty Robert Milla for all the help and understanding and patience to our never ending questions and also to his paralegal Stylvia . Thank you very much. More power.”

  • We strongly recommend Robert

    “My wife and I hired Robert to handle my wife's greencard process while I was busy studying an MBA and could not dedicate much time to the process. We consulted with other lawyers and decided to go with Robert because he was very direct in his answers, gave honest and knowledgeable advice and because from day one he provided first class support and clarity on what the process would be like. My wife benefited greatly from his calmed demeanor and openness to quickly answer our questions and accommodate solutions for our case. We strongly recommend Robert, you will find a lawyer you can trust and that will help and guide your throughout every step of the process.”
