Fiancé or Fiancée Visas/K-1 Visa
The K-1 visa is for a fiance of an American citizen. U.S. citizens who have not yet married their fiancé can file a fiancé visa petition on their behalf. You must also have met in person within the previous two years prior to filing the Petition. The K-2 visa is for certain children of K-1 visa holders. For the children to be eligible, they must be under 21 years of age and unmarried.
The K-1 visa holder and the American citizen have 90 days to get married after the fiance has entered the U.S. Upon marriage, an adjustment of status application must be filed in order to process lawful permanent residence status.
U.S. citizens who have not yet married their fiancée can file a fiancée visa petition on their behalf.
First, a Petition must be filed by the U.S. Citizen Petitioner (Green Card holders can not file for a fiancée). The Petition is filed with the appropriate USCIS Service Center having jurisdiction over the State of residency of the U.S. Citizen Petitioner.
Second, upon approval of the Petition by the USCIS, the foreign fiancee visa application must be filed (which will include an affidavit of support, tax returns, financial documentation). Thereafter, the Fiancee’s will attend an interview at the consulate for issuance of the Fiancee Visa.
Once the Fiancee enters the United States, the marriage must take place within 90 days of entry. If the marriage does not take place within 90 days the Fiancee must depart the United States. The couple must also have met in person within the previous two years prior to filing the Petition.
