The Chicago Immigration Court and ICE Office of Chief Counsel are Moving

The Chicago Immigration Court and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Chief Counsel (OCC) are moving locations in December 2011.  As part of the move, the Court and ICE OCC will be closed from December 1st until December 6th. 

Beginning December 7, 2011, the Court will be located at 525 W. Van Buren Street, Suite 500 Chicago IL 60607.  The Court's new phone number is 312-697-5800.

Beginning December 7, 2011, ICE OCC will be located at 525 W. Van Buren Street, Suite 701 Chicago IL 60607.  The OCC's new phone number is 312-542-8200.  Currently, the OCC's office is not open to the public, so attorneys will need to mail all filings to the OCC address and will be unable to hand deliver filings.  Attorneys may also submit documents to the OCC electronically at Chicagooccfilings@dhs.gov.  By filing documents via email, attorneys are agreeing to receive future OCC submissions electronically as well.
