K1 Visa: Failure to have an interview within 4 months
The first step required to apply for a fiance visa is submitting a petition using Form I-129F. This must be completed by the U.S. citizen petitioner. The remainder of the visa application process requires joint participation between the citizen petitioner and the non-citizen applicant. Once the petition is completed and approved by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the non-citizen fiance must complete the visa application process within a reasonable amount of time as defined by immigration regulations. For this reason, non-citizen applicants must apply for their K1 fiance visa within four months of the petition’s approval.
K1 Visa: genuine relationship requirement
United States immigration law recognizes that, as an American citizen, you may want to bring a foreign national to the U.S. for the purpose of a later marriage. The k1 visa is the vehicle used to do this.
Immigration law specifically permits a k1 visa to be issued to individuals who want to come into the United States for the sole purpose of entering into a valid marriage. However, the law is not totally clear on what the word ‘valid’ means except that persons entering the U.S. on a K1 visa must be free to legally marry. For example, K1 fiance visas can’t be issued to individuals still married to someone else. Continue reading
Fiance visa: what are the benefits of representation?
Obtaining a fiance visa may prove to be a remarkably intricate immigration procedure. Each case is unique and the circumstances in each case tend to be specific. Based on current time lines of the U.S. government and the US Embassy we are looking at 5-6 months for the whole process. It could be a little more or less as each Embassy operates in a specific manner and the government does not process the applications in a perfect queue. In the course of this lengthy process your relationship is at stake as any potential delays may cause frustration. The petitioner must invest all possible effort and means in order to have the application processed in a timeliest manner possible and establish to his fiance that the relationship is definitely worth more than the fee for the process.

K1 Fiancee visa process
One of the benefits that the United States offers its citizens is the ability to bring another person into the country on a K-1 Visa, also known as a fiancée visa. This visa allows those who have met partners in other countries to marry in the US and have their partners remain with them indefinitely. But while this service provides an alternative to immigrant-based visas, the process has a set of regulations that must be followed exactly in order for an application to succeed, one that can often trip up those looking to begin their lives together on American soil.

Understanding the Fiance Visa Documents
Right from the first step of the fiance visa process there is a lot of paperwork involved on both sides, that is, on the petitioner’s side and on the beneficiary’s side. This visa process was incorporated into the American law to benefit the US citizens who want to get married to foreign fiance’s in the US. However, due to sham marriages witnessed in the past, one has to go through rigorous documentation to establish the legitimacy of the intended marriage. However, if the relationship is genuine, the outcome is usually successful and the foreign fiancee, also called the beneficiary, immigrates to the US on the fiancee visa to get married to the US partner and become a permanent resident thereafter. However, there is always a possibility of a denial of the case. To avoid rejection, both the petitioner and the beneficiary must be well prepared to deal with the mountain of paperwork during all stages of the process. Continue reading

K1 Fiance visa Interview
Fiance visa applications typically receive a denial at the U.S. Embassy stage of the process as opposed to USCIS. A very substantial amount of fiance visa cases that have been previously approved by USCIS do not pass the Embassy phase. The U.S. Embassy does not offer an appeal process, which makes the denial especially tragic for the couple that was awaiting the interview and issuance of the K1 visa. Therefore, it is imperative that you start preparation for the fiance visa interview even prior to initiation of the actual fiance visa process. Continue reading
