K-3 Visas for Spouses of U.S. Citizens

Call a skilled Virginia immigration attorney!

Under a K-3 visa, a U.S. citizen can bring his or her foreign spouse to the United States while that spouse's Petition for Alien Relative (Form I-130) is pending. The K-3 visa petition must be filed by the U.S. citizen spouse on behalf of the foreign spouse. This visa gives the foreign spouse authorization to work while he or she is in the United States awaiting action on his or her immigration status. Once the foreign spouse enters the U.S. on a K-3 visa, that individual can immediately apply for adjustment of status to a permanent resident. K-3 visas work to cut down the separation period between U.S. citizens and their spouses who are from other countries.

Additional Information About K-3 Visas and Adjustment of Status

If the K-3 visa holder has been married to the U.S. citizen for less than two years and he or she successfully obtains an adjustment of status, the foreign spouse's permanent residence must be granted on a conditional basis. In these cases, the married couple will have to file a petition to remove the conditions within 90 days of the foreign spouse's conditional status expiring.
