A: If you are a US citizen, then you can sponsor your fiance for a K1 visa and then when she enters Hawaii, you must marry within 90 days, after which she can adjust status to obtain her LPR. A lawyer should be retained to handle the case and said lawyer can be anywhere in the USA. Counsel begins the process by filing a Notice to Appear in the case and will handle it from point A to Z. Some of us charge very affordable flat fees.
