What Is the Fiancé Visa?

The fiancé visa refers to the K-1 nonimmigrant visa. It allows your foreign-citizen fiancé(e) to come to the U.S. specifically to marry you. If you get married within 90 days of their entry, they can then adjust their status to permanent residence (i.e. obtain a green card).

The requirements for the K-1 visa include the following:

  • You are a U.S. citizen;
  • You and your foreign-citizen fiancé(e) intend to get married within 90 days of their entry into the U.S.;
  • You are both legally free to marry.

Additionally, you must have met each other at least once in the 2-year period prior to filing your K-1 visa petition. If this results in extreme hardship to you, or it violates certain cultural or social customs for your fiancé(e), you may be able to waive this requirement.

*Given the volume of inquiries the Firm receives, the Firm cannot guaranty it will consult with every possible client or evaluate every potential client’s matter. Moreover, a case evaluation or case consultation does not mean the Firm will provide a potential client with actual legal advice on a matter and does not create an attorney-client relationship. A free consultation or free evaluation is intended to enable the Firm to understand the nature of a potential client’s matter and to inform the potential client if the Firm will consider representing the potential client in connection with the matter. Before the Firm can provide legal advice to any person or entity, and before an attorney-client relationship is formed, the Firm must have a signed fee agreement with a client setting forth the Firm’s scope of representation and the fees that will be charged.

The K-1 Visa Process

You will begin by filing Form I-129F, Petition For Alien Fiancé(e) as your foreign-citizen fiancé(e)’s sponsor. With every client, our goal is to submit a petition that is compelling and well-supported enough to avoid a request for evidence, which would create an unnecessary delay that we know you don’t want to endure. If USCIS approves the petition, it will send it to the Embassy or consulate near your fiancé(e), which will then schedule an interview.

If the adjudicating officer at the interview approves the petition, your fiancé(e) will receive a K-1 visa. They will have 6 months to seek admission at a U.S. port of entry, where a CBP officer will assess their paperwork and decide whether to let them into the U.S.

Once they enter, they will have 90 days to marry you and, therefore, qualify for adjustment of status. If you fail to marry within this period, the visa will expire, and your foreign-citizen fiancé(e) will begin accruing unlawful presence unless they leave the country. Any amount of unlawful presence can prevent a person from qualifying for a visa at a later point and may even trigger deportation.

Your foreign-citizen fiancé(e)’s unmarried children can also qualify for K-2 visas, allowing them to come with their parent to the U.S. and adjust their status after the marriage ceremony. Sons or daughters with K-2 visas must remain unmarried to qualify for permanent residence.

Let us help you bring your fiancé(e) to the U.S. as soon as possible. Contact us online or call us directly at (513) 880-9969 today.
