The Chicago Immigration Court has announced that all cases scheduled before Visiting Judge 2 (or VJ2) for January 2019 have been "descheduled" and will not move forward on the originally scheduled date, even if the government reopens in January 2019. No action has been taken yet on the February 2019 hearing dates scheduled with VJ2. Because the Court remains closed for non-detained matters, Court staff cannot generate rescheduled dates or notices at this time. Those dates and notices will be sent once the non-detained court reopens.
Attorneys can determine the judge assigned to their client's case by calling the Immigration Court's Automated Information Line at 1-800-898-7180 or by checking their e-registry account online.
