If you want to enter or live in the United States, you will need a U.S. visa. This starts when your attorney fills out a petition for their client and then submits it to USCIS along with any supporting documents that might be requested. They will also have to request any additional forms or information needed, such as an affidavit of support, and biometric data, such as fingerprints.

Fiancee Visas (K-1 Visas)
Fiancee visas or K-1s are just one type of visa under the family-based immigration umbrella. These visas allow a foreign national to enter the United States for 90 days to meet their partner’s family and get married. As this is a very specific visa, it helps to have the assistance of an experienced immigration attorney to ensure the necessary paperwork is correctly completed and submitted.
Family-based immigration, where a relative lives in the United States and petitions for you to be able to join them, may be one of the most typically used paths for residency in the U.S. Experienced immigration lawyers can help with application assistance and representation during the various court proceedings necessary.
