If you want to bring your fiancé to the U.S. to get married, you may be able to apply for a fiancé visa through U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. You’ll have to meet all the qualifications and file a petition on behalf of your fiancé. A fiancé visa has strict requirements. The person petitioning for the fiancé visa must be a U.S. citizen and must be able to prove U.S. citizenship. You must also generally prove that you met the person you want to sponsor on a fiancé visa, and prove that you intend to marry your fiancé within 90 days of him or her entering the U.S. You may also need to prove that your intended marriage and engagement is legitimate and isn’t solely for the purpose of applying for a marriage visa. If you get married within 90 days of your fiancé entering the country, you can apply for a green card for your spouse.
A fiancé visa can also include provisions to bring a fiancé’s children to the U.S. If your fiancé’s children are under the age of 21 and are not married, they may also qualify for visas to come to the U.S. along with your fiancé. The children may also apply for green cards if you get married within 90 days.
If you plan to get married and want to bring your fiancé to the U.S., the visa lawyers in League City, Texas at the Fonseca Law Firm may be able to help you. We can help you review the requirements, petition for a visa for your fiancé, and guide you through the next steps. Reach out to the League City, Texas visa law firm at the Fonseca Law Firm today.
If you have family who live abroad and are trying to help your loved ones get a family-based visa, the visa lawyers in League City, Texas at the Fonseca Law Firm may be able to help you. If you are a U.S. citizen, you may be able to sponsor your immediate relatives immediately and put more distant relatives on a wait list. USCIS offers visas for two types of relatives: immediate family (a spouse, child, or parent) or visas for more distant relatives. Visas for more distant relatives are limited in number each year while visas for immediate family are unlimited in number.
USCIS defines who counts as immediate family. To qualify for a family visa without restrictions, your family member must fall into the “immediate family member” category. Immediate family members include:
To bring your family member, you’ll need to file a petition on his or her behalf. If your family member overstayed his or her time in the U.S., but entered the U.S. legally, he or she may be able to receive an adjustment of status through the family-based visa process. More distant relatives may have to wait longer to obtain a green card because there are yearly quotas on green cards for more distant relatives.
