"I was very impressed with Sumaiya upon meeting her. She exuded confidence. Our case was challenging but she never gave up hope. She was honest with us and kept us informed at all steps of the application process. Our application was approved and my husband was granted a Green Card. We are grateful for all of her hard work. Sumaiya is caring and down to earth. She is definitely someone to have on your team!" - JH --
I was going through my mail when I saw the little red and white envelope from USCIS. I wondered what card USCIS was sending me since I had not received any recent notifications of a card on the way. I opened the envelope, took out the paper and quickly looked at the name on the card. Attached was the Green Card for JH's husband, CS!! I immediately called up CS and told him the great news! He was speechless! He had waited about 20 years in the U.S., always wondering if at some point he might be separated from his family. He came to see me, very nervous about starting any type of petition. It was a complicated case but I was able to do a spouse petition, green card application, and waiver for him. We made sure to put together as strong a case as possible. Even then, given the legal issues in the case, we prepared for all eventualities. After a year and half, and an intense interview, the petition, application, and waiver were granted! Congratulations to CS and JH!! I spoke to CS today and he told me he went to his home country to visit after 20 years! I asked him what that was like. He took a deep breath, "I can't even put into words...," and went silent. It is moments like this that make me so thankful to be an immigration attorney.
It was such a pleasure to work with this wonderful family and I am so happy I was able to give them good news! Thank you J, C, and L for your lovely words, card, and allowing me to be a part of your journey.
