Frustrated and very angry

Armed with a packet of documents and application forms prepared by our immigration lawyer in NY City at a cost of some $2200 including filing fees, Jane and I headed to the US Customs and Border patrol offices on rainbow bridge overlooking Niagara falls. Otherwise referred to as a port of entry to the USA from Canada. A two hour dive there and a two hour drive back and the net result was that it was a complete waste of time.

Our lawyer had sent us on a wild goose hunt, a complete red herring. The forms were armed with were useless. The port of entry only processes such applications for Canadian citizens and our own applications have to be submitted to the US Consulate in London.  Needless to say, I will be asking for a full refund of the preparation and filing fees that my lawyer charged us!

Back to the drawing board and yes, with new attorneys this time around!
