With Laura’s careful step-by-step guidance, even if you are still in your originating country, you can begin preparing your Costa Rica residency application. Laura will have it ready for submission as soon as you arrive for your next stay in Costa Rica! While your application is being processed, you will no longer have to leave Costa Rica every 90 days for those pesky, (and soon to be restricted) border runs. She will take the confusion and stress out of the process from the very start. With a brisk exodus out of the U.S., application processing times are getting longer.

5 Questions to ask when selecting your representative:
1) Will I get accurate advice on how I should apply (what category)?
2) Is my representative an excellent bi-lingual communicator, thoroughly familiar with U.S., Canadian, and E.U. high standards of task completion?
3) Instead of burying me with reams of text and info, will I get simple and effective guidance?
4) How well does this person know their way through and communicate with Costa Rica Immigration?
5) How long will this take?
6) Is delivery of the service in line with their fees? (See testimonials)
Getting Down To Business…Laura does it all!
As an experienced (15 years) and connected consultant, Laura knows that the starting point for all good applications begins with her first interview with you, the applicant. She knows what will be needed and will ask you questions to determine how best to proceed. More often than not, she co-ordinates this process while you are still at home in the U.S., Canada, E.U. or South America.
She will tell you exactly what will be involved based on what you tell her and show her (documents) about your specific situation. No guessing. No ambiguity. Straight up!
As the process begins, Laura will keep you clearly informed as to the progress of your case and respond immediately to Immigration requests for more specific documentation or appearances. She also knows how to negotiate with Immigration Services when they make unreasonable requests, as can often happen.
She knows how to make your case move as quickly as possible. Immigration staff know Laura well and trust her to bring in correct paperwork so as to avoid needless delays, or worse – confusion, frustration and fear as are so often the case with inattentive lawyers (or more likely… inattentive lawyer’s assistants assigned the work.)
With her cheerful style and engaging personality, Laura will put you at ease at your first meeting. She has great empathy from her own immigration experiences in both the U.S. and Canada. (She is also a Canadian citizen) and remembers well the expensive nightmare that this process can be if handled by the wrong lawyer.
While your application is being processed, you can fully embrace the joy of Costa Rica worry free with constant updates from Laura as to your status.
Most applications take about 7 to 10 months even with an overloaded and understaffed Immigration Center. However, if your case gets complicated, all the more reason to have Laura in your corner. So call or e-mail her today! 011-506-8386-4395 firstname.lastname@example.org
Our case was already very complicated before we met with Laura. We were to the point of no longer trusting anyone to get this application completed properly. But in record time, Laura finally got our residency cards… ending a seven-year nightmare! When it came time for renewal, as can sometimes happen, things got complicated again due to demands by Immigration. Once again, Laura straightened things out with her expert negotiating skills and professional manner. I consider Laura a friend and protector. I would never allow anyone else near our dealings with Immigration as we still have two more renewals to go.
