K-1 Fiance(e) Visa Attorneys in Everett, WA (Snohomish County) & Seattle (King County)

The immigration attorneys at Genesis Law Firm are experienced in assisting United States citizens with bringing their foreign fiancé(e) to the United States. The process of applying for a K-1 fiancé(e) visa can be overwhelming, but our experienced immigration attorneys have developed strategies to streamline the process. We have a very high success rate in our fiancé(e) visa petitions.

Fiancé(e) visas allow a citizen of another country to enter the United States on what is known as a “K-1 visa.” The K-1 visa is granted to the foreign fiancé(e) at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate of his or her country of residence. Before being granted the K-1 visa, the foreign fiancé(e) must attend a “visa interview” at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate and prepare himself or herself with numerous types of documentation. Once the visa is granted, he or she will be able to enter the U.S.

If the K-1 visa application is denied, however, it is very difficult to appeal. That is why it is extremely important to make sure the supporting evidence and visa application are submitted in the correct way, and the foreign fiancé(e) is prepared to answer the difficult questions he or she will be asked by the Consular Officer at the visa interview.

When the K-1 visa is granted and foreign fiancé(e) arrives in the U.S., the U.S. citizen petitioner and the foreign fiancé(e) must get married within 90 days; if they do not, the foreign fiancé(e) must leave the U.S. immediately. Once married within the 90-day timeframe, the foreign citizen spouse may then apply for “adjustment of status.” Adjustment of Status is the process by which the spouse obtains his or her two-year Green Card. This two-year Green Card may eventually lead to a ten-year Green Card. Spouses of U.S. Citizens who hold a Green Card for a certain amount of time may be eligible for U.S. Citizenship through the process of Naturalization.

If the K-1 visa application is denied by the Consular Officer, it is very difficult to appeal. That is why it is extremely important to make sure the supporting evidence and visa application are submitted in the correct way, and the foreign fiancé(e) is prepared to answer the difficult questions he or she will be asked by the Consular Officer at the visa interview.
