K1 Fiancé Visa Form or I-129F Petition for Alien Fiancé
Let us start with the Fiancé Visa, legally known as form I-129F or the K1 visa. The K1 Visa allows your fiancé(e) to travel to this country for the wedding. Once your fiancé(e) arrives, the wedding must take place within 90 days. The following list contains all the evidence you should have to apply for the K1 Visa and the documents you should have translated.
Proof of US citizenship:
Proof that you or your fiancé(e) legally terminated any previous marriage (if it applies)
A passport size color photograph of you and another one of your fiancé(e), taken within 30 days after submitting the application
Proof of a legal name change (if applicable)
Proof to support an IMBRA exemption (if applicable)
Proof that you and your fiancé(e) have the intention of marrying within 90 days of arriving in the US as a non-immigrant K-1.
Proof that you met your fiancé(e) in person within the previous two years before submitting Form I-129F. If you have not met in the past two years, you need to provide proof that meeting in person would infringe upon the strict and established customs of their culture or the foreign social practice of your fiancé(e) or that it would be of extreme difficulty for the applicant.
Steps and process for applying for immigration for the K1 Visa.
Once you have gathered all the evidence and required translated documents, you are ready to continue with the application process. We would coordinate an appointment with you, here in our Isabela office or in our San Juan office. During this appointment you will meet with one of our agents and we will ask you a series of questions that are aimed for correctly answering the questions in the corresponding USCIS questionnaire. We will make copies of your documentation and hand you back the originals. Call us today if you need help to make an appointment.
We will immediately start with the translation and certification process. Once this is finished, we will start the application process. You would need to visit our offices again to sign all the documentation once the project is ready to be sent to the USCIS by mail. At this stage in the process, we make sure that all the provided information is accurate and updated. Once your package is ready, we hand it to you so you can send it by mail, unless you prefer that we send it by mail. If you choose for us to send it, we will give you the USPS tracking number so that you can follow the package’s progress towards its destination. The waiting time will depend on the processing status the USCIS assigns to you. Every case is different. We will keep monitoring the application and helping with the next stage that would be the NVC or National Visa Center. We will also guide you through this stage and will help you with the required documents.
Form I-130, or Petition for Alien Relative is like the K1 Visa in terms of the rates and the processing times. However, it requires providing more evidence, especially if you got married in your spouse’s country of origin. Please contact us for more information.
The following is a list of the evidence required for a spouse or the visa for a family member:
Proof of US citizenship, legal permanent residency, or US National Status:
If you are applying for a spouse, evidence of good faith at the time of marriage:
Legal name change proof (if applicable)
Two passport size pictures (if applicable)
Two passport size pictures (if applicable)
Then the process is the same as with the K1 Visa. Once we prepare your translated documents and the package is ready to be submitted, we will send the package and await a response from USCIS. We would be available to continue with the next steps. The Affidavit of Support is a very important document that would make you responsible of your immigrant family member for 10 years, independently of your living arrangements or civil status during said years. We will guide you through the process and all the requirements.
There is no way to bring a family member to this country with providing this form, your application will be denied without it. You will need to meet a requirement of a minimum annual income, to sponsor an immigrant. If you cannot meet the criteria, you can find a co-sponsor to sign with you.
