Helping You Through All Steps of the Immigration Process Serving Families in Orange County & Surrounding Areas

Fiancé Visa (K-1 VISA)

The purpose of a fiancé immigration visa is to get your loved one into the United States for marriage.

The requirements for a fiancé visa are:

  • You are a U.S. citizen,
  • You have met your intended spouse in person within the last two years (with some exceptions), and
  • You both you are legally able to marry.

Once your application is submitted, it will be forwarded to the National Visa Center and forwarded to the embassy indicated in the petition. Generally, the process takes about nine months or shorter.

Once your fiancé arrives in the United States, you and your immigrant fiancé must marry within 90 days from the date he or she entered the United States. Otherwise, the visa will expire and the beneficiary of the fiancé must return to their country of origin.

Many cultures have different ideas of how marriages and engagements should occur. The USCIS has carved out certain exceptions, such as the in-person meeting requirement if this is against your cultural norms or will otherwise cause an undue hardship.

New laws in the United States now extend fiancé visas to same-sex couples, so long as you intend to marry in a state that recognizes same-sex marriages.

Applying for a fiancé visa can be complicated, especially at the consular processing stage. Contact an Orange County immigration lawyer today for a consultation.
