i worked in TW for 5 months and met my girlfriend during this time. after that she came to the U.S. for about 5 months. now she has returned to TW and has been working for a few months and i’m in the U.S. working. we’ve been talking about getting married and her coming to live in the U.S. but don’t know the best way to apply for the visas. is it better to apply for a fiance visa or to get married somewhere and then apply for a spouse visa.
also, is it possible to wade through the paperwork alone or do i need to pay a bunch of money for an immigration attorney? does anyone know how long it takes or how much it all costs? can she still come on her visitor visa while the paperwork is processing?
i also got a full scholarship to an international mba program in TW so a secondary option we were considering is me doing that for two years and then DCF filing. this is looking less likely to happen since we think we want to live in the U.S. for now.
anyone gone through this process? i thought there’d be plenty of posts in the forum but i didn’t see any.
