A fiancee visa is the quickest way. Then marry her in the US. Takes 3-6 months to get her over. Citizenship for a wife takes three years + processing time which can take up to one more year or even longer.

I can tell you from personal experience with this, that if you live in an area of the US with a lot of foreigners or illegals, your spouse's wait time for citizenship processing can take up to 8 years. That was the case with my wife in the DC area. After 4.5 years we moved to Denver and had her paperwork transferred and the "waiting line" got shortened. She was sworn in, within 6 months of arriving in Denver. Just a heads-up: my wife is now considering giving up her US citizenship, since they've tightened up all the laws for tax reporting, overseas bank account reporting, it's harder for her to invest overseas and open a bank account overseas now. Many non-American banks do not want to give accounts to Americans, due to the IRS gestapo tactics for tracking down US money abroad. It's a real problem, and you may want to clearly discuss this with your fiancee in advance. Just my 2 cents of advice, based on experience. YOU, however might be wise to consider getting the Brazilian citizenship through her (in addition to your American one), as a fall-back, in case the US becomes a much more unhealthy place to live. Good luck!

If Think Different doesn't mind me paraphrasing here, I feel that you should really, really relocate to Brazil and leave the City of Brothers and Thugs for forever and a day.

What part of Brasil is your Brasileirinha from?

That's right. You should be thinking about how YOU could get the Brazilian citizenship instead.

It's kinda ironic, because you're in a situation where you can easily live in Brazil. Most of us here want to get out of the USA

Skateboard, you and your fiancee need to read this article and think about whether you really want to saddle her with a US citizenship:

If I had a close family lineage (all my close family had been here in America too damn long), i still had my job there, and had money, getting back to BR would be a cinch.

I was just going to post that. Getting U.S. citizenship is the worst thing you can do now.

There was an Aussie girl working at an Olive Garden that I eat at. We talked about her stay here and it turns out her dad is a U.S. citizen, but she was born and grew up in Australia. Since her dad is a citizen, she was able to get citizenship when she moved here for the summer.

She was quite upset when I informed her that now she is a citizen, she will have to file 1040 tax forms for the rest of her life. The U.S. is the only advanced country in the world that taxes citizens even when they live abroad.

Check out this story of a foreigner that somehow got the IRS after him:
