What is a K-1 Visa?

    A K-1 visa is a nonimmigrant visa that allows a foreign-born fiancé to legally enter the country for the purpose of marrying a U.S. citizen. When the petition is granted, the foreign-born fiancé is required to marry within 90 days of admission. Once the marriage is complete, it is then possible to apply for an adjustment of status to obtain permanent residency.

    Below are the basic requirements for obtaining a K-1 visa:

    • The petitioner must be a U.S. citizen
    • The couple must legally be free to marry
    • The couple must have met in person within two years of filing the visa petition
    • The couple must establish that their relationship is genuine and bonafide
    • The petitioner must have sufficient income, or have a co-sponsor, to satisfy the affidavit of support

    File an I-29F Petition for Your Fiancé

    If all of the basic conditions are met, the U.S. citizen will file an I-29F petition with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). After the petition is granted, the case will be sent to the U.S. consulate in the fiancé's native country. They will then fill out all of the necessary paperwork, produce police clearance, take a medical exam, and have an interview. Because this process may take some time, it is important to begin it as soon as possible.

    • This entire office is an amazing team and we recommend them to all of our friends

      “We have been using this office since 2014. They have helped us from adjusting my husbands status from his overstayed visa, to getting his travel permit, green card, and now his citizenship! They were able to pretty much do everything for us to where we only needed to submit documents and stay in contact. They made the entire process smooth and quick for us. They helped put our minds at ease when we were worried what could happen while we wait. Very good with quick response times! Very friendly staff! Both Ashley & Jeb were amazing to us and worked closely with us throughout the process! Maria & Josue were our main contacts throughout this as well and were just friendly and always answered my questions. Karen & Ann were amazing with working out payment arrangements for us during a difficult time of a new baby. This entire office is an amazing team and we recommend them to all of our friends who will need to go through these things as well! Thanks for all your help!”
