A: The Trump EO shouldn't slow down the processing of the I-130 petition for a Jamaican citizen. Best way to evaluate your wife's situation would be to discuss in a consultation setting with multiple attorneys and ask for price quotes during the consult. Many immigration attorneys offer free consultations. Pick the one you feel most comfortable with and preferably who is an AILA member (American Immigration Lawyers Association).
