Jean (center) was petitioned by her sister in 1994. Life in America has always appealed to Jean and her family, and after waiting several years, she came to the U.S. as a tourist with her daughter. The trip was a graduation gift for her daughter who was an honor student.
They risked everything and decided to overstay. Several months later, Jean’s husband, Milo (left), followed to the U.S. He also overstayed.
When the petition become current, leading U.S. immigration lawyer Attorney MICHAEL J. GURFINKEL (right) pursued an Adjustment of Status for the family. Based on their eligibility, Jean’s petition was transferred from the Philippines to the U.S.
Watch how after almost 25 years of waiting, Jean and her family are now living the American Dream with no fear nor worries on this episode of CITIZEN PINOY
