I came to Jennifer at the beginning of my journey to sponsor my wife from Thailand. I listened to family and friends and decided to do my application on my own. It seemed that I could do it myself and so I put in my application. When I received a rejection letter from CIC after waiting 3 years, I was devastated. I followed the advice of another family friend who recommended that I return to Jennifer to see if she could help me. I was feeling very vulnerable when I came to her but during our consultation she made me realize that I would be in good hands. I wish that I had hired her in the first place when I was filling out my original application.
Jennifer was honest in her assessment of our chances with an appeal. She laid out the options going forward and left the decision to Noi and me. We decided to go ahead with an appeal and we ended up being successful. Jennifer was very good in preparing me and helping me go through the process. It was an overwhelming prospect to head to court, but I knew that with Jennifer and her team behind and beside me, I wasn’t alone.
I remember the interview with Immigration and feeling very nervous when I went in. Jennifer had worked with me to prepare me for what to expect, but it was still nerve wracking. Having her there being calm and competent really helped me relax and just focus on telling the truth about our relationship.
There was a lot of work that Jennifer and her staff did on my behalf to prepare my case and when I heard Immigration say that we had been successful in our appeal, I couldn’t process it. I gave Jennifer a ride back from Toronto and there were a million things running through my mind, but I kept circling back to the one thing that stood out for me – I had good help.
I have recommended Jennifer to others. The results are clear. Did she provide value for me? – yes, my wife became a permanent resident last week! Even though the road may be bumpy and those bumps were my mistake, I knew I was in good hands. The ladies in the office were always very helpful and I felt like I could be honest with my questions or when I wasn’t sure what to do next. They made it a safe place to be vulnerable and admit that I was over my head. I knew that they knew what they were doing and I could trust them with the most important person in my life.
Noi and I are now adapting to being a couple here in Canada and I have Jennifer and her team to thank for that.
