Awesome experience with the perfect outcome
ALG Lawyers got the job done. I had such a great experience with this team. People often talk about Visas as being about luck, and sometimes it takes long, sometimes its quick. Our visa was approved quickly, and I do not think it was luck. Our visa was approved quickly because of ALG Lawyers and the preparation they put into our submission. They were also in constant communication and updates felt like they were real-time. I believe their deep experience with Visa applications help us prepare a sound proof package, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thank you ALG Lawyers, you made our lives happy and without worry. We will be back later when it comes time for the 10-year visa.
