Hi everybody !

Dave and I (Steffi) just got married and are now trying to find the most efficient way throuth the visa/greencard process.

I am a german citizen and my husband is a US citizen.

We have done some research and know what formes to file but just want to make sure that we get this absolutely right the

very first time and follow all the appropriate steps not to loose any more time before we can live together.

We are therefore looking for very experienced immigration consultants in the USA who would be able to help us guide through

the process.

If anybody can let us know about their experiences or let us know who they would recommend that would be very much appreciated.

If anybody has worked with an immigration lawyer/attorney before in New Hampshire and could recommend somebody that would be

wonderful too.

Thank you so much in advance.

Steffi, no offence but the hiring of an attorney to file a simple visa petition is a waste of money, if you can read you can do it. You already said you know what forms to file, just do it.

The process is pretty forgiving as, if you make a mistake they will simply ask you for a correction.

If you have special circumstances like past immigration issues, or law enforcement issues then by all means hiring a lawyer makes sense, but if you are just doing a straight forward visa petition and application you can do it yourself as the myriad of VJ'ers in the past have done. Don't let the process intimidate you, it really isn't hard

Good luck with your journey :thumbs:

^^ Agree. If you have no extenuating circumstances, can understand and comprehend all of the information available online, the process can certainly be completed without a lawyer. You need to assess your situation and decide accordingly.
