K-1 Fiancé(e) Visas: Orange County Attorney
K-1 fiancé(e) visas allow U.S. citizens to bring a foreign citizen whom they plan to marry to the U.S. As your attorney, I will help you prepare the K-1 fiancé(e) visa petition. The process typically takes six to 12 months, and there are certain criteria to be aware of:
- The U.S. resident must have visited his or her foreign fiancé(e) at least once before filing the petition.
- The U.S. resident must plan to marry the foreign person within 90 days of arrival.
- The U.S. resident will need to show documented communication with the foreign person.
- There are no guarantees for obtaining a K-1 fiancé(e) visa.
The U.S. government will investigate your relationship with your fiancé(e). It is important to document all communications, including all email, text messages and money transfers. By providing extensive evidence of an existing relationship, you can greatly increase the likelihood of the petition being approved.
I-130 Visa: Petition For Alien Relative
An I-130 petition is another way for a U.S. citizen or LPR to bring foreign relatives to the United States, including spouses, siblings, parents and children. The I-130 petition is only the first step in obtaining a visa for the foreign family member. After the petition is approved, a visa number must become available.
There are other paths to bringing a family member to the U.S. It is important to contact a knowledgeable lawyer to understand the options and make the most effective decisions for your unique situation.
