Fiancé Visas (K-1)
U.S. citizens wishing to bring a foreign national fiancé(e) living abroad to the United States to marry would apply under this visa category. Once the foreign national fiancé(e) is in the United States, we assist them to obtain Legal Permanent Residence in the United States.
K-1 Fiancé Visa
A U.S. citizen who is engaged to a foreigner may bring his/her fiancé to the U.S. with a K-1 visa. The K-1 fiancé visa lasts only 90 days during which time the wedding should occur in the U.S. Thereafter, the foreign fiancé can apply for his/her U.S. green card. It is important to note that the K-1 visa cannot be renewed. To qualify for a K-1 visa, both the U.S. citizen and the foreign fiancé must show a genuine intention of marriage, must prove that they have physically met with each other within the past two years and that there are no legal restrictions such on their ability to marry. Once a person enters on the K-1 fiancé visa, he/she can apply for authorization to work in the U.S. during the 90 days interim until the marriage. The minor, unmarried children of those holding the K-1 visa may enter the U.S. and will also be able to apply for green cards once the K-1 visa holder is legally married to the U.S. citizen.
