Managing Partner Michael Wildes and his clients, a U.S. citizen and his Russian Fiancee, are guests on the Montell Show whereby Michael provides insight into the Fiancee Visa.
Under U.S. Immigration Law, the following visa classifications are in effect:
K-1, Fiancé(e)s of U.S. Citizens
Those engaged to be married to U.S. citizens who seek to enter the United States solely to enter into a valid marriage with the U.S. citizen petitioner within 90 days after entry, and the minor children of such persons, may be admitted in K-1 and K-2 visa status. The period of admission is 90 days. K-1 aliens are ineligible for extension or change of nonimmigrant visa status; they may only adjust status to lawful permanent resident on the basis of marriage to the U.S. citizen petitioner.
K-2, Spouses of United States Citizen Petitioners
K-3 visa classification is available to individuals for whom a United States citizen spouse has already filed an immigrant visa petition, which remains pending. This visa classification facilitates entry for the spouse of a United States citizen (and his or her minor child) while awaiting processing and adjudication of the immigrant visa petition.
