May I have your two cents?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here used RapidVisa.com before? With their promising payment plans, it seems like a good route to go if you're someone like me (afraid of messing up k1 application paperwork.)

I know one member recommended it; however, I'd like a few more opinions.

You can see quite a few prior posts regarding Rapid Visa using the search tool (see above link). I think most who have used them were happy. Lawyers cost too much and unless they are experienced in immigration have a tendency to mess things up.

The guides are very helpful in explaining everything. There is even an example forms tab to use to see examples of how forms should be completed. Why not save $$ and do it yourself. It's really not that difficult.

I agree with the others... do it yourself and save the hard earned pennies.

You can follow the guides and most people on this site have been through it themselves and can help you. If it hadn't of been for VJ i think there would have been a couple of times i would have come up stuck but they have gotten me through it.

when I look back on the process it makes me question what part immigration lawyers actually do when it comes to this visa process... only because you fill in the correct forms and provide the information on them (which surely you would have to give the immigration lawyer anyways)

I am not saying they are never helpful when you run into problems but if the immigration lawyer runs into problems then surely they are going to come back to you anyway.

also once the paperwork has been sent off its pretty much out of your hands anyway

I would use them before an immigration lawyer. I think they charge like $375 which is a fair price, you still have to collect most of your evidence yourself.

I have heard good reviews about them for people using them in Philippines, the office is located near the Embassy.

This site offers all you need to know to do it yourself, but if you just don't have time then based on what I know I would not hesitate to use them. I did my own stuff, and it's fairly simple, but nothing wrong with delegating it.

I used them and just finished payment plan in October. They are great and very helpful. In fact I was a little but ahead of things because of them. My fiancé never received a text, a email nor a piece a mail. For some reason it all came to me. And because of rapid visa the ds160 was a breeze.

Yep...another vote for do it yourself. :) With all the info on this site and asking questions you can EASILY process the necessary forms and data. Honestly just follow the guides on here and fill out the forms with precision and make copies of everything and you will be fine.

Its really not that hard to do it yourself. All you have to do is work down the lists on this site, and gather the documents, and fill in the forms. Most of us here have done it with no RFEs (omissions) at all.

Plus you get that satisfaction of knowing you did it yourselves, and knowing that when you have to apply for AOS after getting married, or Removal of Conditions after 2 years in the US, you will have the confidence to do all of that without a lawyer.

No one is going to know more about your lives, and care more about getting the visa than you and your partner. You are the best people to do it.
