If anything, the US laws are stricter (in some areas). You still have to have met face to face, and for her to come to the US, you would have to sponsor her - which involves showing that you can keep her off welfare benefits.

Perhaps she could come over for a visit - on the VWP for a month or so. She can't change to another status from that visa, but it would be a first step at least.
Cheers,
Bev

Be so kind and write in sentences. This is impossible to read.

Take your problem down to segments and work on one at a time.

To bring your girl friend to the US:
Does she have sole custody of the children?
Why is she not working right now and what would she be be doing in the US?
How will you support a family of four?
Who will be the sponsor for Affidavit of support?

As Bev pointed out - you have not met and are thinking about bringing her and the kids to the US. Vissit. Meet her in her own surroundings. Get aquainted with the kids. Long distance relationships for sometimes extended periods of time are not unusual in international relationships.

I agree totally with Twostep....You're making huge plans to be with somebody you've never met!!!
The sensible thing would be to get to know her and the kids first....as stated before, people are different online to their real persona.
Online I'm charming, friendly, witty and funny....
In real life, I'm a grumpy ugly ogre.....
Just an example!!

I really think you're jumping the gun here... meet face to face, and get to know her and her kids first....Then start making plans.

JMHO.
