To bring your foreign-born fiancée into the United States to marry, you need an experienced attorney who can properly prepare the petition. The Law Office of Charles E. Andersen represents U.S. citizens in San Diego and surrounding areas of California and Arizona in securing a fiancé visa with the least hassle or delay.
With 10 years of immigration law experience, we have sophisticated knowledge and experience in working through the complex bureaucracy to expedite processing of K1 visas. In fact, because of our thorough attention to detail before submitting a fiancé visa petition, we have never had one denied. After assembling your package, we can give you an estimated timeframe for approval. The entire process typically takes 4 to 6 months.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is sometimes suspicious of fiancée visas, guarding against those entering the U.S. under false pretenses. We gather the extensive documentation required to prove your legitimate petition:
Citizenship - Only a U.S. citizen can obtain a K1 fiancé visa. Permanent residents (green card holders) can not qualify.
Proof of Relationship- You must show that you have known each other a period of typically three to four months, and prove to the USCIS that you are engaged and actually intend to wed.
Valid Passport - and Birth Certificate.
Employment History -must go back six years for both parties
6 or more photographs- of your fiancee
Once your fiancée enters the U.S., you must then convert the process from a Fiancée visa to a temporary conditional resident. This process must take place before the expiration of the K1 visa. After marriage, we can help file for adjustment of status for your spouse to obtain permanent residency status. Your fiancé's unmarried children under the age of 21 may also enter the U.S. under an accompanying K2 visa petition..
