Back Together After A Long Separation!

July 16, 2022

This story touched us deeply.

They asked us to share this photo with you as an encouragement.

When our US citizen client was 18, she went to Ghana to work with a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO).  

She ended up meeting her husband, having two children and staying there for 20 years!

In 2018, they decided it was time for their family to move to the US.

They hired us in November 2018 to bring her husband here.

We filed their case on February 22, 2019

The I-130 was approved on September 5, 2019. 

In October 2019, we began the National Visa Center process for them.

Because our US citizen client had resided in Ghana for 20 years, she needed to re-establish US domicile.

She moved back to New York with their children in December 2019. 

She expected her husband to join the family shortly thereafter.

But the COVID-19 pandemic changed everything.

Although the case was documentarily qualified on June 15, 2020, the US embassy in Ghana virtually shut down. It later faced a huge backlog.

The family was separated for 2.5 years.

Unfortunately, the embassy declined an expedite request. 

Finally, on March 11, 2022, our client's husband received his interview notice. 

We prepared him for the embassy interview and updated his documents.  

The embassy approved his immigrant visa on April 4, 2022!

In June, he joined his family in New York and took this family picture to share with you. 

Stay strong and be encouraged because your day will come soon!
