Thank you for allowing me to assist you.
If the woman is in the United States, there are no restrictions on non-citizens marrying. She can marry you the same way you would marry a United States citizens. You could do a proxy marriage in some states if she is not here, but proxy marriages are not accepted for immigration purposes unless the marriage has been consummated.
If you need to bring the woman to the United States, she would need to get a visa to travel here, at which point you could get married.
The United States would also accept marriages that were validly performed in other countries.
So, you could travel to her country and marry there.
Yes, if the marriage is valid in Lebanon, the U.S. will accept it.
Nice. Thank you.
Wait even though they only do it in Churches and not with their government.
Considering their government is dissolved last I remember.
It must be legally recognized by the government in Lebanon. If Lebanon accepts a church marriage, that will suffice. You will need legal documentation of the marriage to prove to immigration officials that the marriage took place.
I don't really know anything about Lebanon, but I did have a client whose Lebanon wedding was accepted by the United States and her husband was allowed to immigrate to the U.S. That was several years ago though.
Is there any other question I can answer for you?
Yeah, I know there are issues as of late. But you definitely answered my question.
Appreciate it. Have a great night.
