About Our Fiancés and Fiancé(e) Visa Services
Our team is well-versed in matters of family-based immigration, and we love nothing more than helping family and loved ones reunite in the US, especially for such joyous occasions as a marriage. As such, a considerable portion of our practice is dedicated to helping fiancés and fiancées, as well as newlyweds, establish their lives in New York, even if one of them is not a current citizen of the US.
The comprehensive legal counsel we provide to fiancés and fiancées looking to establish their new family in the US includes but is not limited to:
- K-1 Fiancee Visas and Petitions – You and your fiancé(e) must intend to wed within 90 days of your fiancé(e) entering the US in order to be eligible for a K-1 non-immigrant visa. If there is a “bona fide intent to establish a life together and the marriage is not for the sole purpose of obtaining an immigration benefit,” then your fiancé(e) can apply for a Green Card and lawful permanent resident status in the US after the marriage takes place.
- I-130 Husband and Wife Visas and Petitions – You can file a petition to have your foreign spouse come to the US using the Form I-130, Immigrant Petition for Alien Relative. Once you’ve submitted this petition, you will be required to provide evidence that proves your relationship to the alien.
- I-485 Adjustment of Status Applications – The I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, is used by fiancés and newlyweds to apply for lawful permanent resident status in the US.
We recognize that there’s a lot at stake when applying for a fiancé(e) visa, as well as when petitioning for lawful permanent resident status after the marriage. Rest assured, we do not take these matters lightly. While a joyous occasion, your marriage cannot really begin until you and your fiancé or spouse can safely and confidently reside in the US together. We are here to help make that happen for the both of you.
Our family-based immigration services continue to be the reason that many loved ones are able to successfully reunite in the US, and the same can be true for you. To learn more about your legal options for your loved one’s permanent resident status in the US, contact our team. We would be happy to meet with you during a free consultation to discuss your options.
