With a Fiancé(e) Visa, you can petition to have your significant other travel to the United States in order to get married. The marriage must be completed within 90-days of their arrival to the United States. The Fiancé(e) Visa is also known as a K-1 nonimmigrant visa.
How The Family-Based Immigration Process Works
The process of petitioning to become a family immigration sponsor can be tedious and time-consuming for both the petitioner and the applicant, with multiple steps to complete. The family immigration lawyers at Barringer Law Firm are here to help.
To become a Family Sponsor, it all starts by filing Form I-130 – Petition For Alien Relative to begin documenting your relationship with a qualified relative. Once Form I-130 is filed and established, the next steps entail supplying financial documents, completing the application, and last but not least, an applicant interview.
To petition for a Fiancé(e) Visa, the process begins with Form I-129F, Petition For Alien Fiancé(e). Once approved, the marriage must be conducted within the 90-day visa period. If the marriage process is completed within the set timeframe, then the next step is to apply for a Green Card.
We know the process can seem overwhelming, which is why we are here to help. If you or someone you know has any questions about sponsoring a family member or applying for a Fiancé(e) Visa, contact Barringer Law Firm to talk to a knowledgeable family immigration attorney to start the process.
