She was thorough with the paperwork and always called us with any updates to make sure we were well informed. We absolutely loved working with her and we are so grateful for all of her help.

      Immigration Advocacy Services is terrific!! My husband and I worked with Maggie. She was kind and understanding … read more and walked us through the entire process step by step.
      I know some people file all their paperwork themselves, however, if you don’t include something or miss needed paperwork/information that can really set you back. Don’t take that chance!
      I can’t recommend Immigration Advocacy enough!
