First of all we would like to praise God for what he has done in our lives! We met online 2013 filed 2014 for fiance’ visa on our own. We completed this visa ourselves. Mercy and daughter kaye arrived in Alaska March 2,2015 . We married April 18,2015 .Then we began the process for Adjustment of Status. After many months we were denied. We hired an immigration Attorney to appeal USCIS decision after several months,and much cost we were denied again.
We then discovered Fred Wahl visa coach. After consultation on the phone, we hired him to help us with the Adjustment of Status. Fred had some concern for our daughter who turned 21 before we consulted him. Fred is very knowledgeable and was upfront with us concerning this issue. Fred’s company is very professional, always responded to our phone calls and questions.
In hind sight we wish we had hired him from the beginning.
We highly recommend Fred Wahl

#VisaCoach Video on Sample Questions asked at a Spouse Visa Interview
What questions are asked at the final consulate interview before a CR1 or IR1 spouse visa is granted? Over the decades while helping couples achieve their dreams of spending lives together in the USA, after the interview is over, I always ask the couple to tell me about what their experience at the consulate was like. And I always ask what were the questions that were asked. As time has gone by, this has allowed me to compile a detailed and accurate list of sample questions that are actually asked. I use these to prepare VisaCoach couples for their interviews.
We passed our interview. Thank you so much. We are overly prepared that we didn’t even have to answer a single question. The interviewer didn’t have to ask us anything. Thanks for being with us all the way, you didn’t let us down. We’re now just waiting for my visa to come through and we’re ready to go. 🙂

#VisaCoach Video on 2017 Income Requirements for #CR1 #Spouse Visa CR107
In order to bring one’s foreign born spouse to live permanently in the USA, the US spouse (sponsor) must demonstrate to US immigration that he or she earns enough income to support his or her spouse, and children at a level of 25% above the national poverty level and will not need any welfare or similar assistance. The “poverty level” is set annually by the Department of Health and Human Services. In 2017 requirements have risen $200 per person.
My experience with Fred was quite positive. He was great at responding in a timely manner to questions regarding the K1 Visa process and about the documents needed as well as updating documents as the need arose. I can say that hiring him was a wise investment because it simplified the experience. I would highly recommend him.
