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.

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.
