Uniting Couples Through The K-1 Fiancé Visa
U.S. citizens can file a petition for a fiancé visa if the couple intends to marry in the U.S. after the fiancé obtains the K-1 fiancé visa abroad, among other conditions. In addition to the petition, immigration officials require a number of documents to prove the relationship is real. The foreign fiancé must also collect specific civil documents, undergo a medical examination, and attend an interview a U.S. Embassy or Consulate abroad. Minor children of the K-1 visa holder can also apply for K-2 visas and accompany the K-1 fiancé to the U.S.
The process to obtain a fiancé visa can be lengthy and can be subject to delays if the case is not properly filed. One mistake could delay the process by months, or even result in a denial. Consulting and working with an experienced immigration attorney during the K-1 fiancé visa process can reduce the risk of delays and denials. Proper legal counsel can help demystify the process and assure that all the correct documentation is filed at the right time.
