Family Based Immigration
The Immigration and Nationality Act allows fiancés of US Citizens to come to the United States in order to marry. Depending on the alien fiancé's home country, the fiancé visa may be the fastest way to immigrate to the United States. The fiancé visa process generally takes one year to complete from the time of filing until the fiancé arrives in the United States. There are several steps involved in the fiancé visa process. First, the US Citizen must file the visa petition and supporting documentation with USCIS. The visa petition (I-129F) must be accompanied by specific evidence including birth certificates, passport copies and a written declaration from the petitioner among other things. Once the visa petition is approved (normally six months after filing), a consular interview will be set in the alien's home country. The alien must attend the interview and bring several pieces of evidence including, but not limited to, police clearance records, affidavit of support, and medical examination.
Once the visa is issued, the fiancé is free to enter the United States. When the fiancé arrives, the couple must marry within the first 90 days. Then, the couple will file the I-485 and adjust the fiancé's status to a lawful permanent resident.
