Customer Question
Hi I have paid...

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the U.S. government?

What has the US got to do with it she has a passport and visa medical and flu vac all done but she has only got a 6 month tourist visa

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about the visa?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes I haven't got time to earn $5000 AUD for Ghana immigration to allow her to leave the country before her 6 month visa cancels
