Visa receivied

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We had our interview Sept.19 in Kiev, Ukraine. All went well and we received the visa today Sept.24th. My wife has to get things ready and then we head for the USA. Hope to be home the first week of Oct. I need to thank my immigration attorney: Marc Ellis http://www.marcellislaw.com/. His office was a great help and Marc wrote a brief that was great and put them in their place. Our journey took over two years but our lives together has just begun.

Congratulations! I guess the good thing now is that at least you are done with USCIS until your wife has to renew her GC or becomes a USC since you won't have to do ROC.
