“Never marry the one you can live with, marry the one you cannot live without.”
I certainly did…
I married my best friend, my soul mate, my better half, the future mother of my children, the one I wanted to see smile & laugh for the rest of my life.
I certainly married the one I couldn’t live without.
And the day we married, oh boy…
- The nerve-wrecking moment before hearing the words “I do” come out of her beautiful lips
- The lights dancing around us as we danced for the first time as husband and wife
- The sweet melodies coming from the best 80’s cover band you could ever hope to find
- The laughter and tears of joy that went down our cheeks from finally having tied the knot until death do us part
- The realization I’d no longer be able to remember a time where I could be OK without having her in my life
All of these memories are still fresh in my mind like if I had married just last week.
But in this time of the year, it’s my professional (and moral) duty to remind myself of this:
I had the opportunity to choose who & when I wanted to marry, and I even got to choose where I wanted to live with that person afterwards.
For many people in love, that’s sadly a PRIVILEGE instead of their RIGHT!
They get denied the opportunity to make beautiful, lasting memories with the person they love the most because of factors such as:
- Sexual Orientation
- Country of Origin
- Political Climate
I’m certainly no superhero, nor will I change the world like I’d like to…
But through my work, I’ve realized I can contribute and help people make a difference in their lives when it comes to living with their significant other.
And this is what drives me:
the same joy I’ve been fortunate
enough to share with my wife.
That’s why as an immigration lawyer, my work is dedicated to help couples struggling with:
- Frustration because of their SO’s immigration status
- Denied by Embassies & Consulates on their immigration process
- Living in the dark by not getting a response from the US Government on their immigration request
- Being delayed time & time again, constantly on the brink of separation because of this tough situation.
Yes, me and my team might not be a team of superheroes…
But challenging these obstacles & helping couples expedite their SO’s immigration process SUCCESSFULLY is something we do:
And I’m proud to say:
All the long hours, mornings of excess caffeine and those terrible cramps (from sitting all day long) are rewarded once I see my clients’ eyes tear up and their smile come alive when they’re told:
has been approved!
I sometimes catch myself in the middle of the night thinking:
- What would my days be without this wonderful woman by my side?
- Without my lovely kids?
- Without the memories I now proudly call my life?
And I realize:
I want everyone to have a shot with their SO and wonder about the same thing one day.
Yes, every love story worth telling has a struggle…
So let us help you write the happy ending it deserves!
