K-1 Fiancé Visa Lawyer Austin
The K-1 fiancé visa allows a foreign national to enter the United States for up to 90 days for the purpose of marrying a United States citizen (fiancée/fiancés of green card holders do not qualify for a K-1 visa). The couple must have met within the two years prior to the fiancée/fiancé visa application, unless waived by immigration officials. Both must be eligible to marry by meeting the age requirements and showing proof that any former marriages were legally ended.
