About K-1 Fiancé Visas
the K-1 Fiancé Visa Do?
A K-1 fiancé visa allows you to travel to the US for the purpose of getting married within 90 days of your entry.
The foreign spouse will then be eligible to apply for a green card through the adjustment of status process. This will allow the foreign spouse to live and work in the US permanently and eventually apply for citizenship.
Generally, you can qualify for a K-1 visa if the petitioning spouse is a US citizen (not a green card holder), you intend to get married in the US within 90 days of arriving, you are both legally free to get married (you were never married before, or have been properly divorced, and are of age), and you have met your fiancé in person at least once within the last 2 years.
There is no way to extend your stay or change your status to another visa category while on the K-1 visa; you must either get married or leave the US before your 90 days is up.
How Do I Qualify?
The K-1 visa is an important and life changing process for couples. We treat these cases with the attention and detail they deserve. We work directly with you through the entire process and make sure we are available to answer questions until the marriage is finalized.
We will complete the I-129F petition and gather all of the supporting evidence.
We will follow up with USCIS and the National Visa Center (NVC) to ensure your petition is approved as soon as possible.
Upon approval of the petition, we will prepare the DS-160 and Form I-134 (if necessary) for you, guide you through the medical exam process, and help you gather all of the required supporting documentation to prove that your relationship is genuine.
Finally, we will prepare you for your interview at the US embassy where you are applying.
After you in the US and married, we can get your green card through the adjustment of status (AOS) process so you can begin working and traveling as soon as possible. Read more about adjustment of status here.
