If you have been waiting, like, forever for your U.S. residency -or citizenship- papers, worry no more. Immigration lawyer and former Mayor of Englewood, New Jersey Michael Wildes can help… as long as you are, ahem, a Miss Universe.
A press release sent out this week by Wildes & Weinberg informs us that:
“Michael Wildes has been hired to serve as legal counsel to Miss Universe 2009, Stefania Fernandez. The appointment marks the third Miss Universe that Wildes & Weinberg has represented. In addition to Fernandez, the firm serves as counsel to Miss Universe 2009, Dayana Mendoza of Venezuela, and assisted Miss Universe 1976, Rita Messinger of Israel, in obtaining U.S. citizenship.”
So now you know it: If you are like most of us who have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting some more for the INS to make things happen, I’m sure you’ll appreciate knowing there might be other some alternatives out there.
Of course, you will need to spend some time -and money- on your costume.
