Good morning,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. How long has the wife lived with her husband in the US?

2. Is the wife a legal resident of the US (green card)?

3. How many years have they been married to each other?
