When I help prepare a Fiancee Visa K1 petition, usually the final package contains about 100 to 150 pages. We devote at least half of the tabbed sections, and half of the pages to answering the "is this genuine?" question. The answer starts with a two page letter that describes the relationship, its history, present and future. I help my client write his letter. We try to cover the following points:
Describe the history of your relationship.
include, details of the courtship? Frequency of contact etc.
How did you come into first contact with your fiancée?
Describe the nature of relationship?
Why did you choose your fiancée?
What features, attributes do you find most attractive?
What are your plans for the future with your fiancee?
What are your plans for the wedding ceremony?
What are plans for honeymoon?
What are your plans for establishing a household?
Where do you plan to live after marriage? – what kind of house, where, buy rent location and so on.
What do you expect to happen within a year of marriage?
What do you expect to happen after 5 years of marriage?
After marriage, do you have plans about work for your spouse?
Are you planning a family?
Plans for vacations together?
Plans for social, hobbies, educational interests?
Then in addition to this letter, I have my clients provide supporting documents, such as:
Photos of the couple together
Passport Visa Stamps
Copies of Emails/Letters/IM's
Engagement Ring Receipt
The objective is to fully dispel any doubt that the reviewer may have that the relationship is genuine. Once convinced that the relationship is real, the petition should move along smoothly.
I help you to successfully apply for a Fiance Visa see Fiance Visa Services -
The K-1 visa allows a fiancee to enter the United States one time only. If you leave the United States after entering on a K-1 visa, you may not re-enter on the same visa. If you want to leave and re-enter the United States, you should apply with Form I-131 Application for Travel Document to the USCIS office that serves the area where you live for advance parole to return to the United States. See Emergency Travel for information on how to get a travel document that allows you to return to the United States.
Expert Tip # 1
Don’t attempt to game the system by applying for a tourist, student or employment visa for your Fiancee. Not only does this waste time waiting to hear that your Fiancee’s application has been rejected, but it will serve to identify your Fiancee as someone probably attempting to enter the U.S. under false pretenses. All Fiancee visa applications are initially viewed skeptically by USCIS with the underlying assumption that a possible attempt to circumvent U.S. immigration laws is being attempted. The USCIS mandate is skewed to preventing fraud, not to bringing happy couples together. Applying for a Fiancee visa after unsuccessfully applying for other visas will subject your Fiancee to extra scrutiny and delays at best, an outright rejection at worse.
