One of the privileges enjoyed solely by U.S. citizens is the ability to bring their fiancé to the United States with a K-1, nonimmigrant visa. If filed properly, a fiancé petition may be the quickest way to unite a U.S. citizen with his or her loved one. If the foreign fiancé has children, they may also be eligible for the nonimmigrant visa as derivative beneficiaries.
In our globalized world, more and more distant couples are meeting online and during foreign travel requiring one person to relocate in order to make the relationship work. We keep up with global trends and can help you document the validity of both your traditional or nontraditional relationship. However, it must be noted that couples must physically meet within the past two years before filing a fiancé petition.
We will also advise you as to the requirements that you marry and file for adjustment of status shortly upon arrival. We will also warn you of the potentially harsh immigration consequences the fiancé will encounter if the post-arrival requirements are not met.
