K-1 Visas Elevating Immigration Solutions with Experience, Diversity, and Cutting-Edge Technology

Understanding the K-1 Fiancé(e) Visa Process in Dallas

Procedure for filing a fiancé(e) visa:

  • The U.S. citizen submits a visa petition, Form I-129F, and includes proof of citizenship status and that the couple met in person within the previous two years.
  • When USCIS approves the application, the petition is sent to the National Visa Center who will forward the case to the U.S. Consulate where the foreign fiancé(e) lives. The foreign fiancé(e) will need to attend an interview and bring the required documentation. He or she must also complete a medical examination and receive vaccinations.
  • Once a case has been processed and approved, the fiancé(e) in the foreign country will be given a passport with the K-1 visa.

At Akula & Associates P.C., our Dallas immigration lawyers can assist U.S. citizens who are seeking to bring fiancé(e)s into the United States. We provide smart and efficient guidance to facilitate the application process.

What Happens If My Fiancé(e) and I Do Not Marry Within 90 Days?

If you and your fiancé(e) on a K-1 visa don't marry within the 90-day period specified by the visa, it can lead to serious consequences. The primary purpose of the K-1 visa is to allow your fiancé(e) to enter the United States so that you can marry. If the marriage does not occur within this time frame, the visa status becomes invalid, and your fiancé(e) will be expected to leave the country promptly.

Failure to marry within the 90 days can result in overstaying your visa. You may be considered "out of status," making you ineligible for most immigration benefits and potentially subject to deportation.

It's crucial to communicate with your fiancé(e) and, if necessary, seek legal advice if unexpected circumstances arise that might prevent you from marrying within the allotted time. Extensions are rarely granted, so planning your wedding carefully and adhering to the visa requirements is essential to avoid complications.

    "Timely response, dedication towards the work"

    We are an IT consulting firm. Kavitha helped us to get critical H1 case approvals and saved employees from running out of status which leads them to travel to their home country permanently. Timely response, dedication towards the work, having proper immigration knowledge, solving cases with logical thoughts, and the best team are the positives. Thanks!

    "Thank you all!"

    The attorneys and paralegals and their assistants at Akula Law in Dallas handled my immigration case for the US efficiently, with care and with attentive responses to questions. Katrina was our lawyer for the remaining few months of our case, originally started by Daniele. Also with Erika and Christie helping us, and despite COVID-19 I finally arrived in the US in June and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you all!

    "...Highly recommended and great law firm."
    I just want to take a moment and personally thanks Kavitha & Akula Law Firm for helping me out and getting through my complicated I140 case. It was a impossible case which Kavitha made it possible. As usual Kavitha's expertise has been phenomenal. I am very grateful to her. Because of her experience and professionalism in filing the I-485 it didn't even trigger an RFE or an interview request, it was a direct approval. And having Ambreen and other expert counsel members are really great to work with. They are prompt and very helpful. Ambreen, is so wonderful and have dealt so patiently and promptly with me during my I485 and the efforts she have put towards my application was at par. I was fortunate to work with Ambreen during this filing period. Highly recommended and great law firm.
