What Is Form I-129F?
Form I-129F is officially known as the “Petition for Alien Fiancé.” It’s just what it sounds like—a petition to allow a non-U.S.-citizen fiancé to enter the United States legally so that they may marry their U.S. citizen fiancé. Filing form I-129F is the first step to obtain a K-1 visa.
The K-1 visa application process can be complicated if you’re unfamiliar with it. You also must pay $535 for Form I-129F filing fees with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). If you have questions or need legal assistance, consult our reputable immigration law firm in Florida.
Who Can Apply for a Fiancé Visa?
If you are a U.S. citizen, you can apply for a K-1 immigrant visa to help your fiancé enter the country. According to the USCIS, you may obtain a K-1 visa for your soon-to-be spouse if you provide the following supporting evidence:
- Proof you intend to marry your fiancé within 90 days of their arrival
- Evidence that prior marriages have been terminated
- Proof you physically saw your soon-to-be spouse in person no more than two years ago
