Should I Apply For Fiancé’ Visa or Get Married First?

What type of visa you should apply completely depends upon your situation, only an experienced attorney will be able to guide you best by analyzing your case type which includes many aspects.

Fiancé(e) Visa Spouse Visa
A U.S. citizen can bring his or her fiancé(e) to the United States with the purpose of marrying and live here with a fiancé(e) K-1 visa. With the K-1 visa, the foreign fiancé(e) will be allowed to travel to the U.S. and marry their sponsor but within 90-days. Afterward, the foreign citizen has the option of applying for an adjustment of status to become a legal permanent resident (LPR). The advantage of the Fiancé’s visa is that the process is as compared to the other visas for married individuals. The fiancé(e) visa process takes approx. 6 months and becoming a permanent resident after that takes approx. 10 to 11 months. Spouse visas offer two options–IR-1 or CR-1 and K-3 visas. A Sponsor can bring his or her spouse to the United States by way of a Petition for Alien Relative, I-130, or nonimmigrant visa (K-3). A “spouse” is well-defined as the legally wedded husband or wife of U.S. citizens and LPRs. The validity of CR-1 spousal visa 6 months, which means you have 6 months to entre U.S., as it allows the holder to come to the U.S. and reside permanently. Please note that with spouse visa (CR-1) no adjustment of status is required. The spouse of a green card holder will be on a waitlist until the visa or green card becomes available.

What Happens if The Sponsor Does Not Have Enough Income?

The most common minimum annual income required to sponsor a spouse for a marriage-based green card is $21,550. The income requirements increase based on family size. If sponsor does not meet the income requirement than he or she can add a joint sponsor. Adding a joint sponsor is not just a normal criterion, many aspects like Joint sponsors previous liabilities, financial status- income, current status, police records, relation to the sponsor etc., things are verified first and only after that a joint sponsor is added. Attorneys at F4 India do such tasks on daily basis, they check the eligibility of a joint sponsor and only after that recommend to add. This is important as some times the joint sponsor added on the petition is not eligible and on this basis your petition may go under administration process which delays your case or even you may face denial.

What to Do if I-130 Petition For Alien Relative is Denied at Initial Stage by USCIS?

If your petition is denied then you may have an option of filing motion to appeal or reconsider. But have you ever thought that why your petition got rejected? F4 India has a record of not having a single denial of I-130 petition from USCIS. There could be many reasons for denial of your I-130 and that’s why it is always suggested to have a experienced attorney to file US complex forms and do the processing on your behalf. Some of the reasons for denial are, not providing enough information to make a decision. USCIS also issue a Request for Evidence before taking the decision denial but lack of accurate response and follow up from applicants side worsen the case and lead it to rejection, but if you have hired us then you need not to worry about anything as this would be the task of our expert team.
