With no English, my career changed from Brazilian lawyer to a housekeeper, bank teller, customer service, assistant branch manager, and prior law school I've worked at the 16th Judicial Circuit as Probate, Juvenile, and Mental Health case manager. Hire an immigration attorney was essential to change my nonimmigrant status to a green card holder by marriage. At the time I've decided to apply for citizenship on my own and it was denied. What seemed to be simple, was not so simple after all. My English was minimal and I was naive. I improved my English and learned the laws of this wonderful country.
