Understanding How The Fiancé(e) Visa Process Works
A U.S. citizen who wishes to bring his or her fiancé(e) from another country to the United States to marry must file a petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The quality of the petition presented is extremely important. A well-documented, accurate petition can help make the process smoother and more likely to be approved.
After the petition is approved, your fiancé(e) can then obtain a K-1 nonimmigrant visa issued at an U.S. Embassy or Consulate abroad. Once he or she arrives in this country with this visa, the clock starts ticking. The marriage must take place within 90 days of your fiancé(e) entering the United States.
If the marriage does not take place within 90 days, your fiancé(e) will be required to leave the United States. Your fiancé(e) may not obtain an extension of the 90-day original admission. After the marriage takes place, in order for your fiancé(e) to live and work permanently in the United States, your fiancé(e) should then apply to adjust their status to become a permanent resident.
