									How Do You Get a Fiance Visa
A fiancée visa is used to bring someone
 who you intend to marry into the United
 States. It will not allow your fiancé to
 live in the United States indefinitely. It
 only allows your fiancé to enter the
 United States on a very temporary basis
               f     f    é
 (90 days). If your fiancé wants to stay in
 the United States the she will need to
 marry you within 90 days and then apply
 for a green card. The process used to
 change from the K1 visa to the green
 card is called adjustment of status.
 The K-1 fiancée visa can be approved if all
 of the requirements are met. These include,
 among other things, the following: that the
 petitioner is a United States citizen; that you
     both f              (        d    d
 are b h free to marry (no pending divorces
 etc.); that you have met each other, in
 person within the last 2 years (you may be
 able to obtain a waiver of this requirement);
 that you are able to show that you can
 financially support your fiancé in the United
 States; that you both intend to marry each
 other within 90 days of your fiancée
 entering the United States.
