If I can do it, how, where should I start and how much it will cost me? Do I need the lawyer?
Yes you should speak with an experienced immigration lawyer. There are many issues that old arise in an adjustment petition that you may not recognize. An attorney will be able to guide you through the process and recognize any difficulties that may not be very apparent. Congratulations on the marriage. Best wishes.
Yes, you most likely can apply for a green card. Yes, you should consult with a lawyer to verify your eligibility and help you with the process. It is much more complicated than just completing a few forms. The filing fee is $1,490. Fees for lawyers vary. Call a few to find one who knows what s/he is doing, is responsive and has a reasonable rate. Do not just hire the cheapest lawyer (or you get what you pay for).
