You can bring them both here through either the fiance or immigrant visa process. I usually recommend the immigrant visa process as the timing is about the same but that is a bit cheaper and has the advantage of having your fiance have the right to work upon arrival. I would be happy to discuss the pros and cons of the two processes, fees, procedures, timing, etc. if you want to contact me directly as indicated below.
