Customer Question
Hi, I am a...

Hi, I am a permanent resident from Australia, having lived my whole life in Tasmania. I have recently befriended a man online, thru a reliable person whom recommends this man to be of good character. We are currently boyfriend/girlfriend and we were hoping he could come to Tassie for a month, so we can further our relationship and see if it's worth pursuing, as well as me wanting to show him around Tasmania. Could you please tell me what is the procedure to follow. The Priest whom is our mutual friend, said he needs an invitational letter from me. Is this the way to go about it. Kind Regards, Linda

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you filed any paperwork with the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) yet?

No nothing.He is a permanent resident of Africa, and is currently there, having just returned from America and hold a tourist visa with america.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

I called mine this morning, but the receptionist said she actually doesn't deal with this sort of thing. Hence I am talking to you

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

No that I can think of just yet, but I sure I will. Thank you.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
