Spouse And Fiancé Visas

The spouse or fiancé of a U.S. citizen can obtain a U.S. residency visa and eventually U.S. citizenship. The application must conform to the policies and procedures of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), however. If you do not follow these, or if you fail to marry your fiancé or fiancée in accordance with these policies, the visa application will be rejected.

Bean, Lloyd, Mukherji, & Taylor, LLP has extensive experience helping clients obtain visas and legal residency for their fiancés, fiancées and spouses, as well as other family members. We can inform you of what you need to do to ensure that your visa application is in order and that you comply with U.S. immigration law.

Helping You Comply With USCIS Policies

Because of the possibility of fraud, USCIS examines spouse, fiancé and fiancée visa applications very closely. In particular, they are looking for evidence that the marriage or betrothal was for the purposes of obtaining a visa, rather than for the purpose of marriage.

In the case of a fiancé visa (K-1 visa), only a U.S. citizen can apply. The fiancé or fiancée receives a temporary visa, and the marriage must occur within 90 days of arrival in the U.S. The newly-married spouse must then apply for a green card.

In the case of an alien spouse already married to a U.S. citizen, numerous documents are required from both the U.S. spouse and the alien spouse in order for a spouse visa (K-3 visa) to be issued.

The lawyers at Bean, Lloyd, Mukherji, & Taylor, LLP understands these complex rules, requirements and procedures. We can advise you regarding what you need to do, as well as help you collect and prepare all of the documents needed as well as the application. Whether it involves a fiancé visa, a spouse visa, or a K-4 visa for children, Bean, Lloyd, Mukherji, & Taylor, LLP can guide you through the entire process.
