I can not imagine the troublesome, sleepless nights if she had not helped us. I became a US Citizen four months after our first interview, and my wife became a permanent alien shortly after that. Do not hesitate contacting Karen, she really is the best and will bring you the results you are so much hoping for.Miguel G.
