Will you be going to DR to marry her or do you want to bring her as a fiance and marry her here?

OKay, then in order to bring here here you will have to apply for a K-1 Fiance visa for her. The K-1 fiance visa takes about 6 to 9 months (right now a little longer) after you apply to be approved and once approved, she will be able to enter the US. You qualify for this visa for her because you are supposed to have met once in the last 2 years and you must have proof of it and it sounds like you have this. You will submit the form I-129F (found on uscis.gov/forms) to start the process and that will cost $340 plus a $350 fee for the visa processing fee later at the US embassy when she goes. Again, It will take about 6-9 months for her to get the interview over in DR. After she gets approved hopefully, then she will enter the U.S., then you have to marry here within 90 days of her entering. Once married, then you have to prepare and send the I-485 application with $1070 in fees which is for her green card. After you submit the application, she will be called in for an interview here that you attend with your new spouse in about 5-6 months. If all goes well, then she will receive her green card a few after by mail.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
