Don't Let Immigration Forms Keep You from Happily Ever After
So you met someone outside the U.S., and now you want to tie the knot?
Make sure you know these 5 things.
The K-Visa is for people living outside of the U.S. If your fiancé is already in the country, he or she doesn't need one.
You must be a U.S. citizen to petition for your fiancé. Legal permanent residents don't have the K-1 privilege at this time.
BE BONA FIDE
You must show that you met your fiancé in person at least once during the past two years and that your relationship is legitimate.
LOVE ON A DEADLINE
You have 90 days from the time your fiancé enters the U.S. to get married. After the wedding, he or she can apply for residency.
ALL IN THE FAMILY
If your fiancé has children under age 21, they can get K-2 visas to accompany their parent to the U.S.
