K Visas: Eligibility & Requirements
As the name suggests, a fiancé(e) visa, also known as a K-1 visa, permits the fiancé(e) of the U.S. citizen to travel to the U.S. and marry their citizen sponsor within 90 days of arrival. Afterwards, the foreign citizen should then apply for an adjustment of status to a permanent resident with the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). It is also necessary to meet some additional requirements of an immigrant visa in order to carry out this process. At Maghzi Law Firm LLC, can walk you through the requirements of this process to ensure that all the necessary steps are made.
A K-3 visa, on the other hand, is a nonimmigrant visa for the foreign citizen spouse of a U.S. citizen. If filed and processed, it gives the individual overseas the option to enter the United States to seek approval of the immigrant visa petition. Similar to K-1 visa recipients, K-3 visa recipients are able to adjust their status to that of a permanent resident with the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) upon approval of the petition. In order to apply for a K-3 visa, one must have the petition filed by a U.S. citizen spouse and meet additional requirements of an immigrant visa. At Maghzi Law Firm LLC, we can walk you through the requirements of this process as well, and ensure that the necessary steps are made.
A K-4 visa works quite similarly. It is called a “child of spouse” non-immigrant visa, and it involves sponsoring a foreign spouse’s children to come to the U.S. In order to qualify for this visa, the child must be unmarried, under the age of 21, and the child of a K-3 visa applicant. K-4 applicants must undergo a variety of other proceedings to ensure they meet specific requirements. These proceedings can include a medical exam and a consular interview. At Maghzi Law Firm LLC, we are happy to walk your family through this process so that you are aware of what to expect, helping to ensure the best outcome possible.
