Default Marrying my girlfriend in Greece and US visa?

If I marry my girlfriend in Greece next month on the islands, then what do I have to do for her to come back to the USA and stay with me?

Thank you for any help and advice.

I wish to inform you that after you have married, you may file a petition to sponsor your wife for a green card by consular processing. She will be interviewed in her home country for grant of an immigrant visa and if approved then she may proceed to the United States to join you. You may contact an attorney and seek guidance.

Thank you!

Do we normally have any idea how long that process would take before she can come to the US?

Hopefully you can document an ongoing, in person relationship or she may be denied.
