We initially looked at the paperwork for a K1 Fiance Visa ourselves. All of the rules and paperwork were nothing but confusing and because of the complexity and need to do everything correctly, we opted to find an attorney. I located Mr. Chapman searching online. He made this whole process smooth and easy. He took the time to explain the entire process up front as well as explaining again as we went along. He was there to answer all our questions and complete all of the paperwork so that everything would be submitted correctly. There were no delays thanks to his knowledge and attention to detail. We were able to stay ahead of what was needed and always knew what to expect. This process would have been painful had it not been for Eric. We will continue to use Eric through the rest of the processes we face ahead. I would not hesitate to recommend Eric to anyone, in fact, I would encourage it.

My Fiancee and I met while I was deployed to Iraq. After I redeployed back to the states we continued a long distance relationship. We met in a nuetral country several times and soon fell in love and got engaged. We thought it would be nearly impossible for her to get a visa knowing she was from Iraq. We shopped around for a good lawyer and many did not respond or wanted an arm and a leg. We contacted Eric and his response was quick and made us feel comfortable from the start. My fiancee recently had her interview and it lasted all of 15 minutes and was granted a visa just 3 days later. From start to finish Eric guided us through the process. Thank you Eric for all your help, you are a blessing!

After an extensive search for an attorney to handle a K-1 Visa, i decided to retain Eric Chapman. It goes without saying that I could not have made a better decision. Eric was impressive from the initial telephone conversation. He is very knowledgeable and always informed, prompt and courteous . Questions are answered immediately or within hours of leaving voice mail or email messages. The entire visa process took eight months but would have taken much longer without Eric's assistance. We had absolutely no glitches or problems thanks to his experience. I would highly recommend Eric Chapman as your attorney of choice for these matters.

Eric was outstanding. He is a total professional. Anytime I needed his assistance he was there via email or a phone call. NO question I asked was too tiresome, he always demonstrated total patience and a genuine concern for our endeavor to receive a fiancee visa. I highly recommend him to anyone.

Eric brought Dan and I through the K1 fiance visa process successfully. This can be a stressful process but he made it much easier which alleviated the stress! He was there to answer any questions we had at anytime along the way in a timely manner as well as complete all of our documents and be sure we had everything in order before Dan went to his visa interview. Dan is now anticipating his arrival into the USA in the next upcoming months and I can definitely say that I'm not sure how we would have made it through the process without Eric! We are thankful for his prompt responses and thorough work. He is upfront and honest. I would definitely recommend Eric!

Working with Eric was a pleasure. His hard work, knowledge, and diligence on my K-1 Fiancee Visa filing made my case very easy and stress free. Eric was easy to work with and always answered our questions and resolved issues within a very timely manner. My case was approved from start to finish in approximately 6 months.

Eric was very helpful for me & my Fiancee, he answered every phone call & e-mail promptly & walked me through the whole process. I would have had a very hard time without his service & I would recommend him to anyone I meet in a similar situation.

Mr Chapman was successful in orchestrating the immigration of my 26 year old wife Althea from Jamaica. Simply remarkable considering I (her husband) was 58 years old. He was thorough in his approach and spot on in directing us through the long process. In less than a year from first applying for a immigrant visa she flew into Miami airport and on to San Diego where we now happily reside. Althea has been attending a local college where she has retained a 4.0 grade point average and now applying for early admission to such schools as UCLA and UC Berkeley. She has also recently received her 10 year green card. All this was possible because of Mr Eric Chapman's experience and persistence in performing the difficult legal process of immigration. We would definitely recommend him!

Immigration can be a very frustrating, long process, like anything involving the government. Eric took the time to explain everything to me in laymans terms, not in legal terms, so I could understand what was going on. I must admit that I became a little upset at times with how long my case was taking, Eric was able to calm me down, and reassure me that things would work out. My Chinese wife and I are now living in Florida and are very happy. He was also excellent at returning my phone calls and emails in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend Eric Chapman for any of your immigration needs.

Eric is the kind of attorney that makes you glad you forked over the extra cash instead of trying to go it alone.
Sometimes you can't help but wonder how the government expects two normal, simple people navigate the immigration process. Well, there's a reason immigration attorneys exist. Because it's nearly impossible to figure it out and manage it all! Especially while you are trying to maintain a full time job and the normal requirements of life. Eric can help you keep everything organized and work the checklists necessary for a chance at success. We would have missed so much if it weren't for his insight and experience.
Perhaps Eric's most valuable asset are his soft skills-- the ability to put someone at ease when you are nervous. He has a knack for making you feel confident without over-promising.
Eric's experience and successful track record gave my fiance and me confidence in our decision to hire him.
When it comes to immigration, don't mess around. HIRE AN ATTORNEY. In November 2009, after over 14 months of walking through the immigration process with Eric it was time for "the decision." It was on cloudy China day, I stood outside the US Embassy in Guangzhou "cattle line" awaiting my finance's interview. I spoke with many other couples who had stumbled and plodded through the process. Some were there for the second time due to botched paper work, some had taken twice as long as us to get it because they had to figure out all the government mumbo-jumbo for themselves. I thought we had an ordeal getting to that point but when I heard the stories of others, I knew we had made the right choice hiring Eric.
I am happy to report that my fiance's interview was done in 5 minutes and she had her K-1 approved. Sadly, some other couples walked away rejected that day, doomed to another 8-month long cycle of uncertainty and limbo. I'm not saying Eric is magic and your situation may be drastically different from mine. What I am saying is that if you really want to have your wife/fiance with your in the States as soon as possible you gotta bring everything to bear against the system; you gotta play all the cards that can possibly be in your hand.
Eric's rates are competitive. His communication is second-to-none. His commitment to me and my fiance were exemplary. Put Eric to work for you. You will be glad you did. I am.

I hired Mr. Chapman to handle my fiance visa. He was very knowledgable and experienced in the process, and always kept me informed as to what was to be expected. The whole process was very smooth, and i credit that to Eric. His attention to detail is something that would have been missing had i done this on my own. He made an overwhelming process alot easier. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing his services.

Mr Chapman went in my and my fiance's opinion above and beyond all our expectations. He truly did care about the case as well as us as individuals and at no time did we have any cold feeling as just another client. He took a unique situation where I was constantly on the move between countries and many times without access to traditional postal services and still made it work. He answered all our questions in a very timely and professional manner. I don't think my fiance or I had to ever wait for more than 6 hours on any response of email and about the same time frame for any messages left to his voice mail. He was more than willing to work around my schedule as I continuously changed time zones and not the other way around. Overall I couldn't think of a better attorney when it comes to the issue of immigration than Mr. Chapman. I highly recommend him to anyone that would ever ask.

I found Mr. Chapmanâ€™s advertisement on the internet and compared his services to several others. After evaluating and deciding who offered the best services for my needs I called Mr. Chapman. Mr. Chapman explained the entire K-1 Visa process to me along with the time frame and payment requirements. I hired Mr. Chapman and he has made the K-1 Visa experience extremely easy for my fiancÃ©e and me. I would hire him again if the occasion presented itself because he is a professional who is a pleasure to have on your team.
