Marriage & Fiance Visas
Our firm can help couples who are engaged or married with one partner living outside of the U.S. obtain either a marriage or a fiance visa. They do have some slight differences, so you’ll want to be aware of them before taking the first steps toward either.
A fiance visa, or K-1 visa, is a temporary non-immigrant visa. It is petitioned by the partner who is a U.S. citizen using Form I-129F to allow the foreign partner to travel to America with the intent to get married. Once the couple is united in the U.S., they will need to be married within 90 days to remain in the country legally. After the marriage takes place, the individual can apply for a green card and become a lawful permanent resident. This is the ideal option if your fiance’s country will not legally allow the marriage, or you want a faster process of obtaining residency status in comparison to a marriage visa.
On the other hand, a marriage visa – which is the common name for CR-1/IR01 or K-3 visas – is an immigrant visa, also known as a green card. It is obtained by the foreign spouse following the marriage while they still reside in their home country, for the purpose of legally immigrating to the U.S. with a green card. This is the ideal option if you are a lawful permanent resident (LPR) and also want your spouse to become an LPR, or if the foreign spouse needs to travel abroad after entering the country.
Our seasoned Doral immigration lawyers can help you choose the right option for you and your better half based on both of your current circumstances and the goals you want to accomplish.
There are many different options for individuals to obtain a humanitarian visa if they meet certain qualifying urgent, emergency circumstances. Examples of these situations include natural disasters, foreign government oppression, emergency medical needs, or other safety threats in which they cannot afford a delay. These humanitarian programs are offered to:
- Asylum seekers
- Those eligible for VAWA battered spouse waivers
- Victims of human trafficking
- Victims of other serious crimes
- Those eligible for special immigrant juvenile status (SIJ)
- Victims of natural disasters and other catastrophes
- Those eligible for Medical parole
If you believe you may qualify for one of these types of programs, our Doral immigration lawyers can help you navigate the application process swiftly and accurately so that you don’t risk your opportunity to secure safety in the United States.
