Hi my name is Johnathon Cody King, this gofundme will benifit my family with my wife's immigration status.  Getting her visa and citizenship, i have the paperwork started with north ounty immigrations attorney's but need $3500 to cover the last bit of ferderal and state fee's.

This will benifit my family greatly, allowing my wife to get her adjustment of status and her work visa, while starting the path toward her citizenship.  She came to America when she was 9 years old on a visa, her parents let it expire when she was 15.  She graduated middle school and highschool here.  We both have perfect records in every way,  but since she does not have citizenship my Medi-Cal insurance dropped her from coverage, she cannot attend college.  And every time we go out to dinner or do anything we have to worry about running into immigration.  Since in the modern day being married to me a American born citizen means almost nothing.

The funds will be used for the federal immigration fee's i already have the attorney's fee's covered.  I work 3 jobs and take care of my beautiful 4 month old daughter and wife, but have struggled to get the rest of the $3500 payed for.

The sooner we can get the funds the better, so we do not have to stress while going out as a family.  The paperwork and proof of  good faith marriage is ready to submit.

I well be forever grateful to anyone who helps support this gofundme, it will relief so much stress from my family and me.

The other issue that hat has stopped me from being able to pay for the rest of the immigration is.  I was in a car accident 05/2016, a driver that was texting and doing 65mph rear ended me in a 35mph zone when i was stopped.  My 1989 chevy 3500 pick up truck was a single cab, no head rest.  My head whiplashed and broke my rear window out, i now have to wear glasses and only have 20/30 vision at best with glasses.  Had 20/20 before the accident, also i have suffered severe balance issue's along with double vision, and my vision losing focus.  The injury i suffured is basically the back part of your brain controlls vision, well my brain and eyes struggle to communicate at times.  7 months vision therapy, neurologist's and doctors i still had issues but had to focus on taking care of my family rather than continue getting medical attention. 17+ months and still battling my issues, had to quit my fire safety job that paid well, since we serviced all of California.  My vision would lose focus driving 4+hours to jobs, i did not want to put others at risk.  Basically had to give up a job were i could make prevailing wage on jobs, schools and prisons/anything state or federal owned.  To not put others at risk from my vision issues while driving long hours.  I have continued working the entire time, unluckily i cant work the trades that make enough money to live in California.  Have to move out of the house we are renting, going to get a apartment that's more affordable.
