Immigration Fees for WY/ID Folks



Ariela* is "Mom" to her teen stepson and 3 school age grandkids.  She was born in the USA, lives in western WY and speaks beautiful English and Spanish. Her husband was out of work due to a trucking injury, so they got behind financially.  Now, Ariela's breast cancer is back and she also suffers from lymphedema due to past cancer bouts. 

Prior to the return of the dreaded "C" word, Ariela jumped through all the hoops to sponsor her husband and stepson for legal documents.   Unfortunately, the family has been unable to afford the $1225 fee that is needed to turn the teen stepson's paperwork into USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Service).

Our non-profit, Immigrant Hope - Wyoming/Idaho, recognized and accredited by the U.S. Department of Justice, has not charged her for our work in preparing the multitude of forms needed. But, we are a young non-profit and do not have the funds personally nor as an organization for their required USCIS fees.  Yet,  frustratingly, Ariela's sponsorship for her family is only allowed during her lifetime.

Will you help us obtain these funds in order to send Ariela's paperwork to USCIS immediately? 

With our goal of $15,000 we plan to form a fund that can be used by deserving immigrants in similar financial difficulties as they seek to obtain legal status in the USA. 

Blessings on you for whatever you can do, no matter how small the amount.

*Not her real name to protect the family's privacy
