I would like to say before I started this whole process I had no idea what to file, what paperwork I needed to get and since my wife could only give me limited help, I almost gave up hope entirely Until I found the RapidVisa website and I must say they turned a nightmare process into something very step by step and very simple. They have helped me through the K-3 Visa with my wife and then through her adjustment of status and through them we got approved in no time. I think if it wasn't for them we would have been lost and I'm sure it would have been denied because of us filing the papers wrong. I must have called them and asked them a million questions, but Ben whom I spoke to most and Jocelyn were the friendliest and most helpful staff I have come across with any company. If you have any doubts about using this company, Please remove the doubts and go with them. You won't regret it.
