Aloha Immigration & Worldwide Migration Partners
As of October 2022, Worldwide Migration Partners and Aloha Immigration are proud to announce our new partnership. Lead by Melissa Vincenty and Clare Hanusz, our new team of professionals in Australia and the U.S. are pleased to offer a wide-range of U.S. and Australian visa services. Our attorneys have over 80 years of combined experience in U.S. immigration from USCIS, ICE, and State Department.
Melissa and Clare’s friendship began back in law school, meeting each other at the beginning of their studies at the William S. Richardson School of Law in Honolulu, Hawaii. Being both Ohio born and having an uncannily similar taste in music and humor, they knew that it was aserendipitous meeting. Through many Taco Bell lunches and late night studies sessions in the library, they supported and cheered each other on. Over the years they shared office space and jointly worked with victims on one of the largest labor trafficking cases ever brought to trial. After graduating from law school in 1999, and starting their careers in Hawaii, Melissa eventually started Worldwide Migration Partners in Sydney Australia, in 2015, Clare founded Aloha Immigration in Honolulu, Hawaii in 2017. Now, working back together again, they look forward to future, where their new combined team of dedicated professionals across the world will be a powerful resource for all of our clients,
We look forward to having you as a client!

- Immigration Agencies Violate FOIA, Harming Immigrants and Government Transparency Alike March 17, 2023Immigration agencies have a problem with transparency.
