Hi...please help

I am a U.S. citizen planning to marry my Romanian fiancé in Romania. Handling the logistics of selling my home in the u.s. is the least of my issues. I have been on several websites and have researched the documents that is required of the Romanian embassy. I don't know if I should hire an attorney or do this myself. Another big question....once I have my birth cert with the apostille, translation, etc etc...can I then go to Romania on a 90 day visa to start the process of getting married. It's like which came first.... the chicken or the egg ! So confused.

You know that as a US Citizen, you can enter the country of Romania without a Visa. Once there, report to a local immigration office or Police department, and declare you are planning to stay. Best to do this in the first 24 hours upon arrival. Always get a lawyer, but make sure you get one that is reputable. Good Luck.

Hi Ricky. Thanks for your answer. I am aware that a visa is not necessary but anything after 90 days I would require one. Do you know what the general purpose of getting a lawyer is? Is it getting my proper documents? From what I understand there are steps I need to do myself once i am there. Do you know how much a lawyer costs?

You don't need a lawyer. You need:
1. An employment contract (or like me, a volunteer contract with an approved non-profit)
2. Apartment lease.
3. Health insurance.
4. Note from a local doctor.
5. Pay the fees of about $200
6. Passport
