Ann-Marie’s sister in Jamaica unexpectedly and sadly passed away at a young age leaving behind three orphan children ages 15, 13, and 11 with no surviving mother or father to raise them or care for them.
Not knowing what to do, Ann Marie came to Spar & Bernstein for help! Our attorneys immediately began the immigration process and obtained approval of three green cards for her nieces and nephews within months through an orphan petition. Once in the United States, Ann Marie completed a full adoption of each of them in State Court and making all the children United States Citizens. All of this completed in a little more than 12 months.
