Marrying A Foreigner
U.S. Immigration law offers two methods for U.S. citizens to be able to bring their spouse or future spouse to the United States.
Fiancé Visa (K-1)
For a U.S. citizen to bring their fiancé to the United States, they must file a K-1, which allows the fiancé to travel to the U.S. and marry the U.S. Citizen sponsor within the first 90 days of arrival. As long as the marriage takes place within that 90-day time frame, the fiancé is granted the right to stay in the United States. Once the marriage has taken place, the fiancé must apply for adjustment of status to become a permanent resident.
Marriage Visa (K-3)
A K-3 visa allows to shorten the physical separation of the foreign spouse and U.S. citizen by allowing them enter the country as a non-immigrant and wait for the green card application process to finish. The K-3 applicant must also have an Immigrant Petition for Alien Relative I-130 filed on their behalf by the U.S. citizen sponsor.
