Help with fiancee visa?

Hi guys and gals, i haven't posted much on this board but i occassionally read it. I really enjoy how friendly and helpfull everyone is and i'm hoping that maybe ya'll can help me with an issue i'm having.

Two years ago i met a girl in Khotyn, Ukraine through mutual friends that live near me in South Carolina, USA. They were originally from there as well and now live here. We corresponded very often through email and phone while she was in college in Zhitomyr. Last year i visited her for 2 weeks and we started dating. We tried to get her a tourist visa twice but she was rejected. The embassy said she didn't have strong enough ties to Ukraine to ensure she'd return after her visit.

This year i visited her again for 2 weeks and we got engaged, with her parents blessing. Now i'm preparing the proper paperwork to file the petition for a K1 Fiancee visa so that hopefully she can come before Christmas. The problem is that after being rejected twice, she's afraid of the embassy. I offered to come with her but it's going to cause many complications with my work schedule and short notice flights, not to mention the fact that she still thinks it's not a guarantee for her to get the visa.

So tonight my sister in law suggested that i hire a lawyer to simplify things, probably guarantee the visa, and hopefully get it all done a little faster. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with fiancee visas or if anyone knows a good reliable lawyer that can assist me. I realise that it's much more costly but if it ensures she's able to come then i think it's worth it.

Any information that you can provide will be much appreciated. If you'd prefer to email me directly you can at urborg777@yahoo.com. Thanks again in advance, i have faith that some kind soul will be of assistance.
