This is a very complete, well organized and easy to use guide.
Kay T.
We read it carefully, followed exactly what it said, and everything worked and now my wife is approved for her green card, and only 10 weeks after our marriage!
Cozmo Kramer
This book helped my husband and I understand the process and also to do everything without a lawyer, saved us a lot of time and money.

This book assumes you have little if not Zero knowledge about the immigration process. If you are looking to get this book it is likely you have visited a few sites and even consulted the USCIS website about how to go about your own immigration concerns. If you have done some research and hope that this book will supplement all the info you've gathered online, you will be sorely disappointed. It provides an introduction to the immigration process through marriage but does not give substantial resource on how to go about filing your application. No updated information about forms applicable or necessary for either K based or AOS petitions and how to file them, how to apply for EAD, what to write on your application and how to interview.

I needed info for a very straightforward case of Adjustment of Status for a family based spousal petition on a foreign spouse inside the US that is in status with a B2 visa. This is not a complicated case and all I needed was inside info on forms, timelines and what to do and not to do when filing for this type of petition. The book did not provide any useful information--at least not anything you cannot glean from merely searching the internet.

The book gives you a very watered down introduction to marriage based visas which is useless for the lay. If you buy this book, be prepared to hire a lawyer because you cannot go through the process on your own with just this as your resource. Don't waste your money. You are better off visiting internet resources like immihelp or visajourney. They provide up to date information and procedures on how to file marriage based visa applications with forums for people that need more help about their case. If I didn't order the kindle version this book would be returned!

Much things have changed, as of 10-2013, many processes on the book are obsolete. It was good 1 year ago though.

This book saved us thousands of dollars of lawyers fees. My fiancee and I consulted, left a deposit, and later found out that what was promised, was not what was going to be delivered. We bought this book for research, and ended up following all it's advice and made it all the way through without a hitch! my wife and step-children are now residents! I highly recommend this book to anyone that needs help with the immigration process.

Format: Paperback
I started out with an earlier edition version of this book, but I doubt that much has been improved in this latest edition. You can be the judge the hard way. This is the voice of experience.

Now that my fiancee has just now arrived here from the Philippines, I can say that this book is useful, but still inadequate. However, there is simply not good detailed information to be successful with this book alone. I've been reading my book as I have gone through the various stages and I still have to ask my consultant questions. Although this is a very thick book with lots of forms and examples, it is still too generalized. The book tries to cover every possible scenario but in doing so, the layout is confusing and insufficient for any specific case.

My situation was very straightforward. I am widowed and my fiancee has never been married nor had any children. I have two children who are fully grown. So I don't think my situation could be any simpler. Thankfully I hired a USA based consultant who specialized in Asia and even he wasn't really up to date on everything. Procedures continue to change. A fiancee visa is too long a process to take the risk of making even the slightest of mistakes or omissions. You could end up starting over or usually being seriously delayed. There are just too many details that are missing in this book - things like details of backup documentation to submit for the applications, how to prepare for the medical exam and how to properly prepare for the make it or break it embassy interview.

From the day that my fiancee visa petition was received by the Department of Homeland security until the day she arrived was exactly 40 weeks to the day. There was not a single day of delay. It just takes a long time to get processed.

This book has followed us all the way from first submitting the I-130 to now the interview phase. I don't know where I would be without this book to help me through this tough process. So happy!

I read this book like it was the Bible of k1 visa immigration. It had everything I needed to submit our petition without the need of a lawyer. Save yourself $5000 and buy this book!

Now if the US laws weren't so cumbersome! I'm flying to Japan this Summer to marry -- it's easy there, just a "visitor's visa." The US paperwork path changes (130 vs 129), but at least we'll be married. Bureaucrats can wait, the "biological clock" does not. About the book: the writing is clear and much easier to understand. It is also well organized. Well worth the price. (This review is for the paperback)
