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 bona fide
  • The petitioner must have sufficient income, or have a co-sponsor, to satisfy the affidavit of support

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.

    “We we're very nervous about driving 3 hours just to get an attorney but upon arrival we immediately felt comfortable. The estimated process time given to us from this office was 6-9 months and we finished everything before the 9 months which was amazing. Thanks to Ashley, Josue, Maria and Karen we succeeded in getting my husband's Green Card. Our family can finally live in peace knowing we will not he separated. We have felt like these people became part of our family. Nothing about this felt like an attorney on client relationship, everything was personal and very professional and we could not have asked for a better experience. We will definitely be hiring Ashley again for the removal of conditions for my husband and hopefully my husband decides to do his citizenship so we can again, hire Ashley.
