K-1 Visa/Status

As technological developments and the ever-increasing freedoms of travel continue to bring people of unique backgrounds closer together, we are more likely to find love in another country than ever before. However, the prospect of actually being together can be quite complicated when one person is a United States citizen and the other is not. To help couples who find themselves in this situation, the U.S. government offers the K-1 visa status to fiancés who intend to marry their U.S. citizen partner.

Basic Requirements:

The K-1 visa status is intended to accommodate fiancés of United States citizens who wish to enter the U.S. so that they may enter into a legally recognized marriage with one another. In order for a visa status to be granted, both the U.S. citizen and his or her foreign fiancé must have legitimate intention to marry one another and must have the legal recognition to do so. Additionally, couples must have met within the previous two years.

Duration of Stay:

In most circumstances, the K-1 visa status will only be granted for a period of 90 days during which the recipient may marry and file for permanent residence in the United States.

Family Members:

Children of K-1 visa holders may accompany their parent into the United States under the derivative K-2 status. To be eligible, children must be under the age of 21 and not married.

Fees:

At the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, our Austin immigration attorneys charge the following in attorney’s fees to file for the K-1 visa status in the United States with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) (please take a moment to look over this disclaimer), in addition to the filing fees currently charged by the USCIS to file these petitions:

  • $3,000 attorney’s fees for the primary beneficiary
  • $500 attorney’s fees for each accompanying child
  • $535 USCIS filing fee
  • $265 + Reciprocity Fee per person US Consular fees
