    China Immigration Visa for Fiancee

    John and his staff met and exceeded my expectations. They kept me and my fiancee well informed. I am quite certain we would not have been successful in our K-1 Fiancee Visa (China) without the help of The Roth Immigration Law Firm. Every case is unique. In our circumstance, the age factor was considerable. I was 58 and my fiancee 24 when we started the visa process. John would did not accept our case until they had interviewed both of us. When John was satisfied that we had a bonified relationship and that we would "go the distance" because we loved one another, the full resources of his office and vast experience in immigration law, were made available to us. Accept no immitations when you have such important matters as an immigration visa. John and his staff are the "Real Thing"! Thanks Joh, Laurie and GayLynn! From "MO & Sunny" Oh, we'll send along some wedding pictures soon.

    Excellent Service

    We would like to thank Laurie Wu and her staff at Roth Immigration Law Firm for their excellent assistance in obtaining a K1 visa for Sera and her daughter to come to the US. Sera and I began corresponding about two and a half years ago when Sera wrote to me on a dating web site. After writing almost daily for a long period I visited her in China and confirmed that she was the woman of my dreams. Knowing that we loved each other was easy, but getting her to America proved to be a daunting task. I had been married three times previously and during the last brief marriage there had been unsubstantiated public charges of "abuse" when I defended my daughter against her. Sera was, because of her work, a member of CCP. So we both had issues that could complicate obtaining a K-1 Visa.

    Laurie worked with us from the beginning, going through the risks of each issue and helping us to prepare to deal with these issues. She and her staff assembled our documentation and warned us of the latest issues that could become mistakes for us in our application. We made it through the application process without problems and only a peculiar request for further documentation of Sera's "international" travels caused an initial rejection at the interview stage. Sera had never traveled internationally but had taken one trip with her daughter to Hong Kong. The Guangzhou office also appeared to treat the application as one for a work Visa and demanded Sera provide a resume and work plan. Laurie patiently guided us each step of the way relieving us of great stress and preparing us for application risks along the way. She guided us through the request for additional information process insuring that our "additional information" would be adequate to meet the often peculiar needs of the Guangzhou office. She warned us, for example, not to "marry" in China as that would prevent Sera's daughter, then age 19, from coming to the US with her.

    Laurie and her staff were always quick to respond to our questions and concerns. She quickly followed up when the Guangzhou office sent out a second Request for Information denial but did not request any information thereby insuring that our application was still on track. While we did not make our goal to marry this last July, Guangzhou finally approved Sera and Sandy's Visas and we will marry this November 6. I know because of the complexity of our case that we would have made many mistakes without Laurie's guidance. Her ability to smooth the bumps in the road to approval seems impeccable and we will be forever grateful to her for her assistance and expertise in making that wedding possible. I would recommend anyone to use her services. The K-1 visa process with the Guangzhou office can get complicated, even for the simplest application. Those complications can drag the process on for ever. We learned of many disappointed and frustrated applicants on various web sites and internet conversations during our application process. Often their speculation and advice turned out to be erroneous. Because of Laurie's advice and careful guidance of our application through the process, our relatively complicated case made it over all the potential bumps in our path and we will marry within one year of our initial application.

    Highly Recommend John F. Roth

    I hired John Roth for my fiance’s K-1 visa. While John was involved in the entire process, I worked primarily with Laurie. Laurie always responded to my emails within 24 hours – even on Sundays. I was always able to reach her on the phone, and spoke to her many times throughout the process. Our case was quite complicated because my fiancé has previously been affiliated with the CCP (she is from China). Laurie ensured that we prepared all of the necessary paperwork to prove that her affiliation with the CCP was in fact non-meaningful. Other lawyers assured me that her membership would not be an issue, but John Roth informed me otherwise. After a smooth process through each stage, when we went to the US consulate in Guangzhou, they did in fact ask her to provide supplementary documentation about the nature of her previous involvement in the CCP. Because Laurie and John Roth had us prepare everything in advance, rather than extending the process by another few months, my fiancé handed in all of the documents at the interview itself. My fiancé received her K-1 visa last week and we have already hired John Roth for the adjustment of status process. I offer my strongest recommendation on behalf of John Roth and Laurie.

    John F Roth Firm is A Blessing!!!

    My name is Naima and I am writing to express my fullest thanks to John F Roth Firm for having made the process of my Fiancé Visa so easy. It was just a piece of cake. We found John Roth's website on the Internet and we decided to go with it. Not one time during the entire process have we been discouraged. There was this lady called Mrs. Gay Lynn Smith who always kept the lines of communication open. Not one time have I tried to get in touch with her all the way from Morocco and she didn't reply back. She was very nice and helped us and my fiancé understand every detail. Her patience and kindness cannot be described in words. I got my VISA in less then 6 months and it was great! I am so thankful that we hired the services of John Roth Firm and guess what? When I came here to the U.S and I got married to the man of my life, my husband and I decided to hire the Firm again to speed up my Green Card and Work Permit pocess. It was just too much papers to do on our own. We felt that we needed some assistance again and we were right. One more time, it was a wonderful decision to hire John F Roth Firm. We didn't have to struggle with the papers or anything else. We called Mrs. Gay Lynn Smith again and she and her wonderful colleagues made things easy for us. I got my Green Card and Work Permit in the twinkling of an eye.

    Believe me if I say that when my Green Card will be about to expire, we will hire this Firm again. We are so thankful for all the support they have provided us with and we will never forget it as long as we live.

    If you need your file to be dealt with professionally, hire John F Roth Firm, you will only be satisfied.

    Sincerely,

    Naima

    Never Again

    After using Roth Immigration firm I will never recommend them to anyone. They did not do any call to the NVC or the USCIS. My Fiance and I had to inform the every step of the way. They always used excuses that it was the first time for this. And repeatedly the paperwork was done incorrectly. They even sent us a Petition from another client containing personall information by mistake. They never even appoligized for the mistakes they made. I asked for money back and they laughed. So now my Fiance and I did not get her visa approved because they did not look over the paperwork completely. This was after I asked Lauri to personally look over all the paperwork after they made many mistakes previously.

    Great Success

    My Chinese girlfriend just got her fiancee visa in her mail last week! Her interview was the 4th of August, and I'm so proud and happy to say she got through her interview and only a week later her passport came in the mail with her K-1 visa pasted inside! Thanks to Mr Roth and Laurie Wu, our visa became a reality! In late October, my sweet girlfriend, Juan, will be here. Many thanks to Mr Roth!

    The best immigration firm in the country

    John Roth and his wonderful staff represented my wife and i with our K1 visa. They worked with us to bring my wife from the Philippines to here in the USA. I hired them Jan 31, 2010 and my fiance (now wife) was eligible to enter the USA on August 19, 2010. John, Laurie and Gay Lynn guided us through the process and submitted our paperwork done perfectly the first time. They left no stone unturned and made the whole process so easy. When ever we had a question they answered the phone and gave us the answer. This is not just a typical law firm, this firm goes above and beyond and cares about the client likethey are family. I highly recommend this firm , they are the best.

    Top notch lawyer

    I used this lawyer after speaking with numerous K1 attorneys. John roth is not the cheapest K1 attorney out their,But as the saying goes "you get what you pay for". John's firm was Very Throughul from the first day I contracted them to help me,get my fiancee's k1 visa to the day she received her k1 visa. My k1 visa was very complicated and I did not think she would receive it as fast as she did. Johns firm says it all about his Success rate in obtaing k1 visas. Last of all if he accepts to represent you for visa, consider yourself lucky he is doing it for you and not the money like alot of attorneys do.

    Execellent Lawyer

    I would like to thank the office of John F. Roth for assisting us with our fiance visa. They informed us and helped us every step of the way. Gay Lynn was awesome and we are so thankful. For those contemplating whether to hire a lawyer or not for the fiance visa process, some things are better left to a professional, especially a matter so important as this. You will not be disappointed, BELIEVE me.

    Invaluable Experience

    Having no experience with visas, immigration law, etc., I was very pleased when I first contacted Rohn Roth's office and very quickly received a call from Gay Lynn Smith. After the initial consultation and instructions regarding the filling out of forms (with detailed instructions) from John and Gay Lynn, I felt comfortable to give these guys the reins. I found Rohn Roth and Gay Lynn to be accessible to my queries and worries (there were plenty) and feel I truly got my money's worth. Navigating the immigration process is difficult, confusing and frustrating. Their knowledge of the system, careful instructions of what to do, and when, and near immediate responses to my myriad of questions helped me through this process. Thank you guys for all your help!
