Customer Question

My wife and I recently married in WA state. We lived together since 1996 in Spain. We have a home together in the province of Cuenca in Spain. I returned to the US in sept 2013 for work.
Looking over the paperwork, it does not seem as though it is a clear cut case for to be granted a VISA and Residency. Then there is the consideration of her 21 year son, who for all intents and purposes is my stepson (I am the only father he has known.).
My question is how should we go about this? Do the paperwork first and risk a rejection, or bring them here then do the paperwork...
