Do you have a fiancé overseas? A K-1 or K-2 visa may help you. At Arnaout Immigration Law Firm, we have handled a broad range of family-based immigration matters over the years. Our Los Angeles immigration lawyer can guide you through the fiance visa application process. If you need someone to speak up for your rights, you can turn to a reliable and respected advocate from our firm.
The K-1 category permits the fiancé of a U.S. citizen petitioner to enter the United States for a 90-day period. Upon marriage to the petitioner within 90 days of arrival, the K-1 fiancé may apply for adjustment to conditional permanent residence (Form I-485).
As a non-immigrant visa, the K-1 beneficiary will be given a single entry visa for 90 days in order to carry out the marriage to the petitioner. They may be allowed to perform authorized work during this time. Non-immigrants are ineligible for an extension of stay or change of status (I-539).
K-2 visas are non-immigrant visas for the minor unmarried children of a K-1 principal beneficiary. They must be listed in the petition and may be given K-2 status if they are joining the beneficiary. There is no separate petition or separate filing fee is required in such cases.
The issuance of a K-2 visa must within one year from the date of issuance of the K-1 visa to the principal beneficiary, the fiancé of a U.S. citizen. The minor unmarried children of the K-1 beneficiary may also adjust status to conditional permanent residence via Form I-485.
