Q: Hello, I want to bring my fiancé of 2 years from Ethiopia to Boston so we can get married and would like so assistance.
I've known her since 2011 and have visited her and her family many times. We have been engaged for 2 years and I want her to come to Boston so we can get married and I want her to stay with me in Boston. What is the best way to get this done?
A: You can file a fiancé visa and once she arrives you can get married within 90 days and then apply for the green card
Stephen Arnold Black agrees with this answer
A: If you have physically met within the last two years then the fastest way is to apply for a fiancé visa and then she can adjust status to get her green card after she gets married to you within 90 days of entering the US.
A: She can come on a fiancé(e) visa, or you marry here in Ethiopia, and she can apply for an immigrant visa. The first route gets her here a little quicker, but it is also quite a bit more expensive. We recommend you consult with an immigration attorney to find out would work best for your circumstances.
