I met my wife Jennifer when I was on a business trip in Germany. She was coordinating our meeting schedule and we ended up clicking really well. Fast forward a bit and we tried to do a spousal application on our own. We ended up getting a refusal because we didn’t provide some of the right documentation. We did a google search for lawyers to help us and found Jennifer Roggemann’s website. We called and came in for an appointment.

My wife had spoken with a consultant before but we decided that with a refused application, we should have a lawyer. We should have saved ourselves a lot of headaches and frustrations by hiring her sooner. Jennifer was able to provide an outside of the box solution to the problem with a custody document for my wife’s son that was great. That’s the sort of service I was paying for. The billing was fair – good value for the dollar. The reporting was great. I’m not the type of person that needs a fancy report – an emailed letter works great for me. It was a lot of work to put in our second application.

There was a lot of things that Jennifer’s office asked us to provide that was what I call ‘colour’ to the file. These documents helped to individualize our situation, which we hadn’t thought to provide the first time. We had decided to hire a law firm that immigration was all they did. We figured that if they weren’t good, they wouldn’t be in business. There are good reasons why Jennifer Roggemann’s office is the successful immigration law firm that it is – they’re good at what they do, and Immigration law ‘is what they do’. They know their stuff and they even worked with us on a payment plan.

Now my wife and step-son are permanent residents and we can plan our future without worrying about work permits and study permits expiring; without worrying that they will have to return to Germany. Thanks, Jennifer and team for making that happen!
