I am marrying a China citizen. She was planning to be here…

Customer Question
I am marrying a...

I am marrying a China citizen. She was planning to be here next week on a visitor visa. Now friends are warning us that that may be a problem. We have been talking 9 months. I went to visit her for 2 weeks in China. Is this possibly going to be a problem? Is theres a better way?

Lawyer's Assistant: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?

I am US citizen, born here.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No, just starting.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I don't think so. I am US citizen. Met someone a couple of years ago while she was here in Cleveland on a visitors visa. We have recently been talking and we were wanting to get married. She will be coming here to the US for that.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
