I’ve Been Where

You Are Now

 

I’ve been on the other side, and it wasn’t fun.

My story begins many years ago when I still lived in Canada. I met my husband online and we began a long-distance relationship.

After years of being separated, we decided it was time for one of us to move closer. We agreed that I would move to the United States. 

My life became consumed with U.S. immigration. I was obsessed with getting it right. 

I read horror stories of other couples being denied and either living apart forever or breaking up. 

This terrified us to the core.

Our entire future felt like it was out of our control. We felt powerless.

I don’t want you to feel like this. You do have control over the outcome of your case. Your first step is to reach out for help and not try to “go it alone.”

Let’s do this together. 

 

 

Don’t Let Fear Stop You

U.S. immigration can feel intimidating.

But with the right guidance, you can be successful.

“I don’t know how to build a strong petition for USCIS. I’m worried that I will make a mistake that can get us denied. I just want to get it right.”

Confused in Texas

“I’m worried the immigration process will take too long. I don’t want anything to delay our approval. We’ve been separated long enough.”

Waiting in California

“We want to start our lives together in the US. Build a beautiful family and work together towards our dreams of traveling and buying a home together.”
