Hello! My name is***** and I am a licensed attorney with more than 18 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. If I do not respond quickly, I promise I will reply as soon as I can. It may take a little time to research and write your answer.

You are over 21? Unfortunately it will take about a year or so to process her immigrant visa, and unless there is a true urgency or emergency, not something that is common, like you want to be together sooner rather than later, that's everyone, or because you fear issues with the pandemic, that's everyone also, it is very difficult to expedite this process and she is not supposed to visit the U.S. during this process as she could be denied entry and that can carry penalties.

I assume you had no additional questions for me.  My goal is to provide you with excellent service – but we are NOT done if you need to continue.  If you feel you have received anything less than excellent service or you just simply have additional questions, please reply back as I am happy to address a few (within a reasonable limit) follow-up questions for you and there is no additional charge.  Also, should you need help reviewing documentation or additional services outside of this website, we can upgrade the service to communicate in private about that.
