Richmond K Visa Attorney

Virginia Family Immigration Attorney Explains the K Visa Category

The United States government offers dozens of different types of visas for individuals who hope to travel to and remain in this country, whether temporarily or permanently. The K category includes the K-1, K-2, K-3 and K-4 visas. The K-1 and K-3 visas are for the primary applicant, while the K-2 and K-4 visas are for the eligible children of the applicant. This category of visa makes it possible for the fiancé(e ) or spouse of a United States citizen to travel to this country in order to establish permanent residency and possibly to pursue naturalization and citizenship.

K-1 Visas for Fiancé(e)s of U.S. Citizens

The K-1 visa makes it possible for the foreign-citizen fiancé(e) of a U.S. citizen to enter this country for the purpose of marrying within 90 days of entry. After the K-1 visa holder has married his or her spouse, the next step is to apply for adjustment of status in order to obtain a green card and become a lawful permanent resident. To meet the qualifications of a fiancé(e), you may be required to provide proof that you and your future spouse have met in person at least once within the past two years, as well as other documentation to establish that you have a genuine relationship with the other party.

K-3 Visa for the Spouse of a U.S. Citizen

With a K-3 visa, a foreign national is permitted to enter the United States for the purpose of reuniting with his or her spouse who has already been naturalized as a U.S. citizen. This visa is intended for people who are petitioning for an immigrant visa but who face long wait times before being able to achieve lawful permanent resident status.

An application for a K visa requires considerable documentation, including medical examinations, police certificates, evidence of the relationship between the parties and evidence of the fact that the immigrant will be financially supported upon his or her arrival in the U.S. A Virginia immigration attorney from Fayad Law, P.C. can assist you with every aspect of your application, as well as representing you with the immigration authorities and seeking to resolve any complications as they arise.
