Fiancé Visa Lawyer in Jacksonville
Call for Help with Your K1 Visa Application
A fiancé(e) visa is available to individuals who are citizens of other countries that intend to marry American citizens. The K1 nonimmigrant visa is designed to enable individuals to travel to the United States and marry within 90 days of arrival. The process can be complex, and you must meet several requirements to qualify, so it can be helpful to seek the advice of an immigration lawyer.
At Weldon Law Group, PLLC, our Jacksonville fiancé visa attorney, Ian Weldon, helps couples through the immigration process. He has over 12 years of legal experience and is highly knowledgeable of current immigration laws. He is also fluent in Spanish and can provide legal services to Spanish speakers in order to help guide them through the process.
Navigating the K1 Visa Application Process
Whether your fiancé(e) plans to seek permanent residency after you are married or not, he or she may qualify for the K1 visa. The steps required after the wedding vary, depending on whether the couple plans to reside in the United States or elsewhere. We can help you with the initial fiancé visa and applying for a green card after the wedding, if necessary.
Our firm can help you navigate every step of the process, including:
- American citizens filing the petition on behalf of his or her fiancé(e)
- Filing and processing the fiancé(e)’s visa documents
- Having a background check performed
- Getting the petition approved by the embassy
- Obtaining medical exams and scheduling the interview
- Accompanying you to the interview
The entire process can be complex and time consuming, taking up to a year to complete. If the application is missing information or all required documents are not submitted, it could take longer to process.
Our fiancé visa lawyer in Jacksonville works to ensure the application paperwork is properly completed and all necessary documents are submitted to help avoid delays.
Bringing Children to the United States
A fiancé(e) traveling to the United States for the purposes of marriage can bring unmarried children who are under the age of 21. This includes both biological and adopted children. The children are granted K2 visas.
We can answer your questions about bringing your fiancé(e) and his or her children to the U.S. and guide you through the application process.
