Thank you Sean!!
We worked with Sean to help our daughter in law receive her permanent residency. He was very thorough and took time to address all our concerns. I appreciated the fact that they charged a flat fee, so there were no unexpected fees or expenses to worry about. He answered all our questions and reassured us before she had to leave for Chile that if there was any doubt he would not let her go. While it was a very scary process, especially with her having to leave her two girls and go to the consulate interview in Santiago, we trusted in Sean that he knew what he was doing and we are very happy that all went well. I would highly recommend him. Thank you Sean!!
