    First, congradulations on becoming a USC. Second, I am assuming your gf cousin is related by marriage, not by blood. If by marriage, there will be no problems here. If by blood, it will create problems for your marriage. Third,if your gf is related only by marriage and BOTH of you are serious about having a serious, deep relationship, then file I-129F, the Fiance visa. This is the simpliest, direct approach for your ultimate dream to come true. You can find it here for more information on bringing your gf over.

    If she is related by marriage, then it will be fine. If not, that would violate local law.

    What an incestous relationship. The dangers of incest are numerous including birth defects. Talk of forbidden fruit.

    Well, you are going to have several problems if you bring her on any fiance/wife visa. It will be against state law for family members to marry, if if both consent. Second, USCIS might see this as immigration fraud. Third, you will have to clearly explain the cultural nuances, if there are any, that marriage to your cousin is for love and is culturally acceptable in your and her culture. Not sure if both of you are Thai, but I do not think this is the norm for Thai culture as well.

    Best advise is to seek other avenues, like employment or school, if she really wants to come to the US.

    Hudson: With all due respect, but the couple's cultural norms in their country of origin are completely IRRELEVANT. Given that they aspire to live in America, it is only OUR cultural (and legal) norms that are relevant.

    Americans need to find their backbone...and stop pandering to immigrants. We should expect immigrants to assimilate to our norms and to speak our language...and the fact that we are apparently pandering to THEIR cultural and linguistic norms is outrageous.

    Quite honestly, if an immigrant's cultural norms are so important to them, perhaps they should stay home.
