My fiancee and I are looking where to begin this whole process. I am a United States citizen and he is not. He is currently out of the country and we are planning on a wedding in the fall. We have one son together, who is also a U.S citizen, and wish to remain in the United States.
You begin by marrying your fiancee and sponsoring him for a green card.

Significantly more information is needed in order to assess immigration-related eligibilities, options and strategies. If your fiance is currently outside the U.S. then his ability to return to the U.S. to become married to you here and then complete the adjustment of status process may depend upon whether he has one of the several nonimmigrant visas, such as an H-1B, that recognizes so-called "dual intent." If he does not have such a visa, then you may need to petition for him to get a fiance visa in order to enter the U.S. and marry you here; alternatively you could go overseas and marry and then go through "consular processing." There really is no substitute for engaging an immigration attorney to learn all of the relevant facts in order to advise about eligibilities, options and strategies.

Agreed get married in the fall and file for a family petition (I-130) on his behalf. Once this petition is approved the next step is with the National Visa Center (NVC). The entire process can take roughly 9-12 months. Speak to a experienced immigration lawyer to help you out. Good luck!
