  • Our Story
    Vinko and I met through a mutual friend on Facebook who had lived in Chile for a while on a fellowship. She made the recommendation because I was showing interest in my Croatian roots and Vinko is 1/2 Croatian, 1/2 Chilean. I immediately thought it was the most unusual combination and a perfect person to meet, given I also speak fluent Spanish. Turns out, Croatian-Chileans are pretty damn common...lots of immigration to not only the States, but to South America. Of course we became instant friends. I was ending a seven year marriage when I noticed VInko becoming closer...so I followed the lead...which led to my visiting him on the week of my 40th birthday (New Year's). Of course, it was fabulous!! We made plans for VInko to come here to visit, but Vinko could not obtain a tourist visa. I decided to go there for two months, knowing that as a result of immigration/visitation issues, I would have to make big decisions. We spent 24/7 together and every moment together was special. Came home to rebuild life in May 2010, and applied for I-129F in July. Vinko got his visa in March 2011 and we married in June 2011. Our AOS was approved in December 2011, and the removal of the conditions took place in December 2013. We've been busy since making life here in the States, working and raising my two children, and taking trips to Chile now and then. Hopefully we will also make a trip to Croatia in the future.

      Fuimos a solicitar eso y nos dijeron que su pasaporte/visa y 1-94 (ingreso al pais) no coincidan, entonces tienen que "verficar" sus documentos, me parece cuando el entro a los EEUU, que escribieron algo mal y parece que esto pasa frecuentemente...entonces tenemos que esperar hasta que hacen esto y luego le dan su SSN#...
