We used Emandi for my wife's immigration process. Emandi was very informative and was very helpful. When everything did not go "exactly as planned," Emandi made herself available to assist us further with additional documentation and legal support. She prepared us through the interview and assisted is with all of the paperwork all at a very reasonable price.
