  • Citizenship

    “Ignatius, and his team, did a wonderful job on my journey to becoming a naturalized US citizen. They were there with my husband and I from the very beginning, until the Oath Ceremony. In the beginning, we had a wonderful consultation with Sanjay, where he explained everything step by step, and they presented all the necessary paperwork to the government for each step that we took. Part of our journey was with Anamika, where she helped us get through the first 2 parts of the legal process, and the final part was with Ignatius, who assisted us with the naturalization part. Thank you, Ignatius, for being there with me during the interview process. Your presence helped to ease my mind.”

My fiancé is from Brazil and we just received the approval for her visa, her interview was successful and now we can finally live our dream and be together. Anamika you made this process so simple and easy, it was a pleasure and we now look forward to the next journey as we get married and ultimately she becomes a USA citizen. I feel extremely comfortable knowing that you will be with us all through this process. We are overcome with joy and happiness. Thank you!!!! Brian”
