I met Danelia in Algodones, Baja California, Mexico, and we quickly became an item. Just shy of a year later, we were married in Mexico, which can be an ordeal in itself! Although Algodones is a border town, and close for me, we decided to immigrate Danelia and her children to the United States.
After researching immigration attorneys, browsing the USCIS and Dept of State web sites, and investigating various online resources, I chose to employ the services of RapidVisa. The posted prices were very reasonable, and the children received discounted pricing.
As I was gathering the initial documents, I discovered that I had more questions than the Dept of State had answers. Fortunately, RapidVisa was always there for me – by email, by chat and by phone! It took about six months for the USCIS to approve my petition and forward it to the National Visa Center at the Department of State. The NVC took another six months to pre-process my case. This was the most frustrating time, as the NVC had a considerable back-log due to computer security issues. But RapidVisa was always there for me, and I could count on their reassurances.
Finally, after about fifteen months, we traveled to Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico for the visa interview. As per Consulate policy, I was not allowed to enter with my family, but they had no problems and were approved! We received their Visa packets in three days, via DHL. Thank you RapidVisa!
