Nomos Law Group helps clients gather documents and submit applications for K-1 visas.
While all couples face hurdles leading up to their weddings, these rarely go beyond finding the right venue or deciding how to pay for the expansive guest list. The challenges are much more significant when marrying someone who lives in another country. Instead of putting your energy into planning your wedding, you are focused on obtaining a K-1 visa so your fiancé can come to the U.S. If approved, and once in the United States, your fiancé can then apply to adjust his or her status after the marriage.
You must complete the application and provide supporting documentation to get approved for a fiancé visa. A single mistake can delay the process, forcing you to push back your wedding date. Fortunately, you do not have to navigate the complexities alone.
Instead, contact our firm to schedule a free consultation with a Boston lawyer with fiancé visa experience. Our knowledgeable, compassionate team assists people from all over the world, so reach out today.
If you want to start the fiancé visa process, you must:
Your Boston fiancé visa lawyer can help you gather and submit the supporting documentation needed to get the application approved. This includes evidence that you and your fiancé have a bona fide relationship. For instance, you need to show that you met in person sometime within the last two years. If you have not, you must prove that extenuating circumstances made it impossible.
You will also need to show proof that you intend to marry within 90 days of your fiancé entering the United States. For instance, you can show receipts that prove you have taken steps to plan the wedding.
It is also vital to provide police certificates for all the places your fiancé has lived for six months or longer. The government will evaluate this information to determine if your fiancé is admissible.
This is far from an all-inclusive list of the supporting documentation needed to obtain a K-1 visa. If you leave anything out, your application will be denied or put on hold, so reach out to our firm for assistance.
A fiancé visa is only valid for 90 days. If you get married within that time frame, your spouse can apply for an Adjustment of Status to obtain a green card. However, if you are still not married after the 90-day deadline passes, your fiancé must leave the United States or risk deportation. Overstaying a visa is very serious and might prevent your fiancé from obtaining another visa in the future. Thus, it is important to have plans in place before your fiancé arrives so you can get married during the short window.
Learn more about this and other requirements by contacting our firm. You can consult directly with a fiancé visa attorney about the process.

If your fiancé does not have adequate resources, you will be required to submit an Affidavit of Support. Once the legally binding document is in place, you will be financially responsible for your fiancé.
You can only serve as the sponsor if your income is at least 125% of the federal poverty level. Fortunately, you can add a co-sponsor if you do not meet the financial requirements.

There is a myth that being pregnant or having a child together will expedite the K-1 visa process. While sharing a child can help prove that your relationship is legitimate, it will not impact the timeline for processing your visa.
Even though you cannot fast-track the process, you can ensure it goes smoothly by hiring a Boston fiancé visa lawyer from Nomos Law Group.
Our firm will prepare your paperwork and supporting documents, lessening the chance of a denial due to a mistake.
