K1 Visas, good lawyers (oxymoron??)

From: United States Michigan Rockford @Tyler72 Time : 2013-08-07 02:09:33
I was looking around online and there are buckets of immigration lawyers out there. It seems anyone who is feeling lawyerly on a given day can hang out a shingle and even if they've never done single K1 they can claim a 100% success rate.

These guys look good to me but are more spendy by twice than most of the ones Ive seen out there.

Im not averse to paying the money. They seem to have very good support for her in China, which is a really big deal to me, but I was just wondering if anyone has any first hand knowledge of a good immigration attourney to go with, based on a very positive experience... Or if anyone else wants to check the above linked guys out and tell me if they think this looks better than the typical $1000 flat rate places that seem to be everywhere out there. Obviously getting this right is a HUGE deal to me. Or if anyone has any other advice based on real experience, not just conjecture.

John? Any advice or recommendations?

Thanks in advance for any help. I just dropped my entry visa paperwork n passport off at fedex, getting very excited about my trip at the end of the month/labor day week. Ive been to china so many times for my job that its really no biggie, but this ones different, lol, im all nervous (maybe its this ring in my pocket?)

@Tyler72 - we have a US k1 and k3 specialist by the name of Ted Huang whose ads run below members photos on the profile pages. We've had great reviews from former successful members on Ted for both reasonable fees and very professional service. Find him at or 626-771-1078. Tell him you found him on CLM and I think he'll give you a 5% discount. He has an assistant who can speak to your fiance in Mandarin.

Ted pays a static fee for his ads so I have nothing to gain by referring him. Everyone I know who has used his services speaks highly of him.

@JohnAbbot Thanx John, I had seen those ads but wasn't sure if it was a recommendation or just google dropping in ads based on prior surfing etc.

I will definitely check out Ted and probably just go with him. I was nervous using an unknown for something so important.

I made out all USA immigration papers for China wife, her son and daughter.
If you can read English and follow directions, you can do it yourself and save a lot of money.
Take "Marrage availability" from where you get your China Visa, you will need it to get married in China.
Visa's to USA from China are easier to get now ah days.

Good luck and do not rush into anything.
I was very happy in China but when I brought the Chinese to USA, mother and son proved to be very ungratefull. We got divorce after nine months in the USA.

I know this is an old post but I will give it a quick update. I went the other way and as John stated I used Ted for my K1 for my fiancé and her daughter. For me it was the best $2500.00 I spent, each situation is different so don't quote my price as yours. FYI, I am done at this price since we are waiting on her interview date. Given the paperwork involved, yes anyone who can read English can do it themselves but, for me its always better to let a professional handle it. While people say it take 6-9 months for approval IF everything is filled out and submitted correctly I can tell you we will done in the 5 month timespan. While I didn't expect her to get the ok for closer to 9 months I am very pleased with the shorter time for sure. Good luck to all those interested and Ted offers a payment plan I believe so don't get scared off by the end total. If you find the right woman its a drop in the bucket in the big picture.

I've got a friend, who I've known since he was in Jr. High who specializes in immigration law. Many friends at the Chinese Church I attend have gone through the process of getting residency, green card and citizenship.
