If you need a great Lawyer- Marc Ellis is the one. I can not say enough how Marc Ellis and his assistant in Guangzhou, helped my wife and I. Marc Ellis takes the time to listen to your story.
I had first filed for a K1-visa with a different Lawyer, case was denied in Guangzhou. I contacted Marc Ellis, explained the case to him. After a long conversation with Marc, I than understood all the red flags in the case. Plan B, I fly to China and marry my fiancée . After the wedding I Fly home and start the process all over . This time CR1- visa.
Because of the red flags in the case, I was contacted by USCIS for an interview at the local office. As the USC, my wife in China, I ask why? I called Marc Ellis, talked to him about the interview. I had 30 days to gather more evidence for the interview. Marc took a plane from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to California. After a day of rest for Marc after such a long flight, we go to USCIS office for the interview. Interview was about one hour. After answering many questions, the officer asked for bank statements. Another delay in the case. I ask if I had the bank statements would the case be forwarded to Guangzhou? Officer was kind and understanding. Officer told me after they received the bank statements, I would receive answer by mail. Case was forwarded to Guangzhou.
I flew to Guangzhou to be with my wife at the interview. One day before the interview my wife and I meet Marc Ellis assistant in Guangzhou, Eunice. Eunice was very kind and patient with my wife. Eunice helped to calm my wife's anxiety. Eunice helped to put all the paperwork in order for the interview. The next day my wife and I walked from the hotel to the embassy for the interview. I stood in line with my wife up to the security check point. I give my wife a hug than walk to Starbucks. I than wait and wait and wait. It was raining lightly outside, so hot and humid. I sit in Starbucks sipping a ten buck cup of coffee while watching for the return of my wife from the interview. The view of my wife clutching all the paperwork while she ran down the street was priceless. I knew as she ran through the doors with tears running down her face the visa was approved. I picked up my wife and swung her around as I hugged her with joy in my heart.
CR_1 approved!!! Thank you Marc and Eunice for all your help!!!!!!!!
