Texas Lawyer Planning Midwest Move Seeks Info on Rules Regarding Being Waived In

By
Question:
I am currently practicing law in Texas, and while I like aspects of my current job, my wife and I have decided to move to the Midwest, where we both grew up and have family support. I have been out of school for six years and am under the impression that I can waive into the Illinois Bar as well as a handful of other state bars throughout the Midwest. However, I have a number of questions regarding the process, the costs, the time it takes to complete the process and whether the background check done on applicants includes contacting current employers. As you can probably imagine, I am conducting this job search in confidence so as to avoid jeopardizing my current position. Can you help me find the relevant information for each of the state bars in the Midwest?
