As one of the best immigration law firm for Persian/Farsi-speaking clients, ImmigraTrust Law understands Iranians' unique challenges when navigating the U.S. visa process. One common goal for many of our clients is to bring their fiancé to the United States. The fiancé visa, also known as the K-1 visa, allows a U.S. citizen to sponsor their fiancé to come to the United States to get married.
Obtaining a fiancé visa can be a complicated and time-consuming process, with many requirements and strict deadlines. With the proper guidance and support, obtaining a fiancé visa for Iranians can be a smooth and successful experience. In this comprehensive guide, our experienced immigration lawyers will guide you through the process of obtaining a fiancé visa for Iranians, including what you need to know and what steps you need to take.
What is a Fiancé Visa?
A fiancé visa, also known as a K-1 visa, is a type of nonimmigrant visa (a temporary visa) that allows your fiancé to enter the United States so that you can get married. The sponsoring fiancé must be a U.S. citizen. In other words, you cannot use the fiancé visa as a green card holder.
Once the visa is granted, the fiancé has 90 days to get married after entering the United States. If the marriage takes place within the 90-day period, the fiancé can then apply for permanent residency via filing the I-485 adjustment of status petition. If for some reason, you are not able to get married within 90 days of your fiancé’s arrival to the United States, you can still apply for permanent residency; however, you have to file an I-130 application and I-485 application at the same time. This process is sometimes called a “one-step” application and is a bit more costly than if you were to apply for I-485 after getting married within 90 days of your fiancé enters the United States.
