  2. About the Johnny Jet immigration article — If they’d properly read VisaJourney, they’d have been fine.

    I completed all the paperwork on my wife’s behalf and we went through the K-1 (aka “fiancee”) visa program and adjusted status once she got here. It was certainly a giant pain and remarkably expensive, but VisaJourney had everything documented and went well beyond what the USG provides as recommendations to ensure an expedited approval. The community is also extremely knowledgeable.
