Hi Ariel, Just wanted to say THANK YOU for an amazing service and assistance with this case. It started a year ago, and now after all those months, I can relax (at least from this aspect). Just to share with you that it was one of the biggest administration challenges I need to complete as part of the company's Reset. Thank you again

Daliah was recommended to my husband and me by an executive at the company we both work for, and she was very helpful as we prepared for my husband's K1 visa to immigrate to the United States. She provided Certified English Translations for my husband's Israeli documents, including court records. She met with us and helped us organize our documentation and navigate the visa process.
