Fiance Visa / K-1 Visa Assistance
A non-immigrant K-1 fiancé visa to the US can help an American citizen and his/her foreign-citizen fiancé(e) reunite in the United States in order to marry. The State Department provides a K-1 fiancé visa overview describing the extensive application and eligibility criteria for the K-1 visa to the US. Seattle Law Group immigration attorneys are fiancé visa experts, with the years of experience it takes to help you through the K-1 visa application process quickly and smoothly.
Although the K-1 visa is a non-immigrant US visa, its goal is to help a foreign fiancé(e) come to the United States permanently. For that reason, upon marriage, the fiancé(e) visa holder may apply for adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident, which confers almost all the benefits of US citizenship. Read on for further information on K-1 visa eligibility, and contact Seattle Law Group anytime to learn more.
American K-1 Fiance Visa Eligibility
USCIS lists several fiancé visa requirements must be unequivocally met to receive a US K-1 visa/fiancé visa:
- The couple must be eligible to marry
- They must have met in person in the last two years (unless hardship or local custom has prevented this)
- The marriage must occur within 90 days of arrival in the US
- Any previous marriages must be fully, legally terminated
Furthermore, K-1 US visa ineligibility may results from any of several other conditions, which include criminal background, public health concerns, or a likely security risk.
