I am currently writing a book about a very lonely man. I am
interested in adding a "mail-order" bride from eastern europe as a
character. I am interested in a somewhat detailed description of the
How does a person find such a service?
What are some examples of these service providers?
How does a person select a potential bride and how do they first meet, etc?
Is the couple married prior to the bride's entry to the US or does the
ceremony take place after?
What is the residency status of the bride before and after the wedding?
Are there conditions that must be met by the bride to maintain residency status?
What happens if they get divorced?
Is the husband legally responsible for the bride in any way?
