Hey everyone as I said my name is Ryan.. My and my wife were married in San Pedro on my birthday Nov 4th of this year..  My wife's name is neuani....  We met online in April of this year and talked for 6months and fell in love before I went to visit in October.... When I left we both felt so strongly that we decided to tie the knot in November since bothe our birthdays are in the beginning of the month... We were trying for the 2nd but after delays having my passport and birth certificate apostled... It wound up happening on my birthday... (Best birthday present ever) so now that we are married I've already been back for her birthday on the 12th and going back again at the end of the month because it sucks being apart..   So I am trying to figure the best way to bring her back.. The paperwork is confusing the hell out of me... I was looking at the rapid visa site but I hate wasting money on something we can do for ourselves...    Please someone help me... Where do I start?? I need the spoon fed version and a kind soul with lots of patients that can help us...

First piece of advice. Stay away from Rapid Visa or any other similar site. Also avoid lawyers unless you have a very serious legal issue.

The best way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time......

Things can be confusing......start at the beginning and break things down into small steps.....

You can do this......many many others have.............

Members on this site have a very low failure rate.......

No spoon feeding allowed......this is a DYI kind of thing and you need to be 100% "hands on"

First thing that you have to do is go to the USCIS website and download the I-130 form and it's instructions.

This is the form to apply for the visa for your wife.

Read it very carefully and many times. Simple mistakes are the ones that cost the most delays.....

 http://www.uscis.gov/

Return to this site and read read read. There is a wealth of information here.

Then ask questions. We are here to help.

 :welcome:


 :2faws:    :domrep:

Good Luck!!!

Easy my ass!! not complicated of course and you sure don't need an attorney, but  the whole freaking process is stressful as hell, so prepare yourself mentally for the ride and  to wait a good year plus.

As I said before there are a whole lot of people here to help and they have nothing better to do than jump on your questions within minutes, am I right Clary? For any good advise there is always Marc and Tim, legal expert D-MO, me I just try to make your days shorter with some jokes.

On a more serious note best of luck enjoy it and every thing will me just fine. Oh Welcome to the club.

Speed up? Look at my time line and you will have a basic idea. I got an RFE and that held me up for about a month. So the answer is yes a year plus,  4 to 6 month here with USCIS then Visa Center then wait to be schedule for interview, so my friend you are going to be traveling to DR at least every three month, remember to take lots of pictures save every  thing, but use the  condoms as evidence, because you will need them for your interview. It is a process

Ryan,

Please slow down and take your time.. I know you are madly in-love and I know she appears to be too.. but honestly learn more about the DR and the Actresses it can have!  Just really be careful!  You are totally going in with rose colored glasses.. I highly recommend to slow down and REALLY get to know her.. I know you think you do.. but you may be in for a rude awakening..

Dominicanas can be excellent actresses...   :compute:

What they are saying is take it easy get to know the woman before you do anything you will later regret. You won't be the first or the last to be taken for a ride.
If not ask el Duro he will give real good advise and I mean real good.

I have followed these forums and used a lot of the advice I read here when looking for the girl I wanted to date and marry. My wife is a good girl and always at home we talked since the beggining of this year and I watches for any signs.. She doesn't go out at all, she is always home with her family and the only money I send is for the English classes that I asked her to take. I surprised her on her birthday and she was home with just her family there..  She was smart and chose the simpler platinum wedding rings versus the expensive ones.. She is really simplistic, and non materialistic. She just wants a loving husband that will love her and be faithful to her.. As for the Dominican culture and food... I love it, I have always ate mostly chicken, rice and beans... So all the foods of the Dominic that she has shared with me has been awesome..  When I was there we spent most of our time with her family in there home. Yes it is humble and without most modern conveniences but we had a blast just listening to music, cooking as a family, dancing, and playing dominos..    I know there are a lot of horror stories but there are a lot of success stories too...
