Hailu is from Ethiopia. Earlier this year, he hired IINE’s Legal Immigration Forms Service (LIFS) for help with his citizenship application. Ashley Wellbrock took on Hailu’s case, prepared his application and forms, and helped him get ready for his citizenship interview. On July 11, 2019, Hailu became a U.S. citizen. When asked about his experience with the LIFS program, Hailu had nothing but praise for Ashley and the LIFS team.

“I am very happy with their help,” he said. “This is a good team.”

Last week, Hailu began the process of applying to have three of his eight children join him in the U.S.  The older children, now teenagers, will have to wait one to two years before they can join their dad in Boston.

Congratulations on becoming a citizen, Hailu. We can’t wait to see you reunify with your children!
