She has no visa or green card. i qualify financially and we are age appropriate. What do we do
If you're not married and you've physically met her within the past two years, you can file for a fiance visa and she can process through the consulate. If you haven't met her then do so and consider marrying at that time and filing the marriage visa petition instead of the fiance visa case. And consider retaining counsel to represent you throughout the process.
two options -- 1) go there an marry her and file for an immigrant visa for her. It takes about 7-12 months; or 2) if you have had at least one face-to-face meeting within the last two years you can file for a fiancee visa. this also takes about 7-12 months and you are required to get married within 90 days after she arrives and then complete the process for her to become a permanet resident.
