I was married in the US to my Australian husband, but from what you describe I can only strongly suggest you get a lawyer – for numerous reasons. Bringing in a spouse from the middle east, given the political climate, can be verydifficult – esp without a lawyer.

My husband is a white guy, from a western democracy that has fantastic relations with the US but we have had all kinds of BS due to the post-9/11 rule changes. (Luckily changes are coming to make the regulations less gruesome for families and spouses trying to live together in the US but that won’t happen over night)

@nooraalj:  We are getting one even though we totally should be able to file and be approved with no issues. The thing is the paperwork is so complicated (even a immigration judge told me he gets confused) and ONE tiny mistake -neglecting to file, sign, or attach something- can either send you back to square one, or worse result in deportation order or a decision that can prevent coming into the US for years. It is totally insane and constructed to ensure a lawyer is a necessity – I truly feel there is too much on the line to not have an attorney. You might be able to do some steps or mundane things on your own but when it comes to applications and filings that require immigrations approval or a judges order – have a lawyer to represent you.
