I realize that this may be a strange topic for a Community Discussion forum on a Macrumors site but I figured there are lots of smart people here, some that may have experience with what I am about to do. So I've met that absolute gem of a woman. In China. And before you start the post I know several people are thinking about writing right now, this isn't some "I want a green card" person. This is the "real deal". We're both in our mid twenties and mature for our relatively young age. I live in Oregon and she in China. We've sent probably 200,000 or more instant messages to each other, hundreds of emails, and many many hours together (usually Skype or Yahoo Messenger's video chat when skype is being stupid). We haven't explicilty talked about marriage. We both know that's where this is headed. She's met my parents (online through Skype) and I will meet her parents in person come this fall (Sept or Oct). So what's the process of getting her over here, as soon is reasonably possible? I know there will be LOTS of paperwork for us both to fill out. I've read it's a big bonus if I'm there for her initial interview at the embassy. I assme that would be the second visit. Does anyone here have any advice? Websites with forms so we know all the information we'll need? Would it be worth to hire an attorney to help faciliate the process? How much is a reasnoable cost for that? Thanks for your time and advice!
