Hi,
Would you happen to know anything about Fiance Visas? K1 visa?

We have a few questions hoping that you can answer:

1.  Do you recommend a lawyer?

2.  Once we submit the papers, how long does it take to process (more or less)?

3.  Any thing that you might remember that it will really help us, any tips would be great!

4.  More less what are the total expenses? i know its $165 for the K1 visa.  Are there any others?


thank you and we really appreciate your help.
