When an American citizen and your fiancée is not an American Citizen, is not already legally in the United States, and your desire is to have you fiancée join you in America so that you can get married and both reside in the United States, you must file a Petition for Alien Fiancée in the United States, known as a Fiancée Visa, or a Nonimmigrant Visa for a Fiancée (K-1).
To ensure entry into the U.S. is not as a result of fraud or deception, the U.S. typically requires that the two people must be able to prove that they have met in person within the past two years. However, exceptions to this requirement may be granted by The Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Because all requests for a Nonimmigrant Visa for a Fiancée (K-1) are not granted for a variety of reasons, it is important that each and every detail and procedure is properly followed to provide the best opportunity to successfully be granted a Fiancée Visa.
In order to be granted a Fiancée Visa, the fiancée must meet some of the same requirements of an immigrant visa, including, but not limited to:
After being granted a fiancée visa, your fiancée may legally enter the U.S. through a U.S. immigration port-of-entry. Once your fiancée enters the U.S., you have 90 days to get married, or the fiancée visa becomes invalid and your fiancée must leave the United States.
