Our Most Comonly Asked Questions
Under U.S. immigration law, a foreign-citizen fiancée of a U.S. citizen is the beneficiary of an approved I-129F Petition for Alien Fiancée. A beneficiary who has been issued a nonimmigrant K-1 visa for travel to the United States in order to marry his or her U.S. citizen fiancée.

This has been a much faster alternative used apposed to marrying in your foreign fiancees country.
Fiance visas are only for fiances of U.S. citizens, not green card holders. In order to bring your fiance here, you will have to get married first. You will then have to file an immigrant visa petition for your spouse, known as Form I-130, and wait for it to be approved and for a visa to become available.

If you are a U.S. citizen you have two ways to bring your foreign spouse (husband or wife) to the United States to live. They are. Immigrant visa for a Spouse of a U.S. Citizen (IR1 or CR1) – An immigrant Petition for Alien Relative, Form I-130 is required. The IR1 Visa is for couples married two years and above where as the CR1 Visa is for couples married less than two years.
Instead of waiting abroad for immigrant visa processing and entering the U.S. as an immigrant, it is possible to go through quicker on a K3 visa (K3 visa for spouse and K4 visa for children) process and enter as nonimmigrant. After arriving in the U.S., separate application for Form I-485, Adjustment of Status. K3 visas are seldom granted for Philippines.
It allows you to notify U.S. Immigration and Citizenship Services (USCIS) that you are engaged to someone from another country, show your intentions to marry, and set in motion the process by which your fiancée will receive the appropriate visa – that is, the K-1 fiance visa. If you have a girl/boy friend who lives in the Philippines and would like to marry them , then this is the correct visa.
What is a K2 visa? The K-2 non-immigrant visa allows the child of a K-1 fiancée visa holder to enter into the U.S. and await the availability of an immigrant visa. This is one of the benefits of the K1 visa- it allows derivative beneficiary. This will allow your Philippines fiancee and her children to also come together.
If you have a wife or husband kids or no kids living in the Philippines and they are all Filipino Citizens and your the American Citizen. The process generally takes from 9 to 12 months, depending on if the married couple has received their certified marriage certificate? There are many key factors as to why it can go more than one year based on birth certificates, passports, police records and medical examinations?

Applicants for K1/K2 visas must, pay a US$265. nonimmigrant visa application fee once the petition has been approved. The application fee for nonimmigrant visas must be paid prior to scheduling a visa interview appointment. All payments must be paid by the beneficiary for the K1 visa application fee, at any Bank of the Philippine Island (BPI) branch.
Most USCIS services centers are currently taking about 5-6 months to approve a fiancée visa petition. Upon approval, USCIS transfers the petition to your consulate via the National Visa Center. Right now this is taking 30-45 days in most cases. For Philippines from 2015, 2016 it had been taking 6 to 8 weeks for the approval of a petition but for 2017 may take up to 3 months for approvals.
That depend on your situation if you are the U.S. Citizen sponsor and have need for litigation due to felonies, domestic violence, or sex crimes, then you may not be qualified to use the I-129F Petition for Alien Fiancee and might stand a better chance to use a spousal visa instead? If you do not have any serious criminal convictions then you “Do Not Need to hire a Lawyer or Immigration Attorney” You may use a FilAm Immigration which is a specialized service that specifically assists couples from the Philippines to the U.S.A.
Philippines does not allow divorce as it is not legal way to dissolve a marriage according to Philippines law? One must undergo an annulment according to the Roman Catholic beliefs which has been known to be very time consuming, costly and often time unpredictable as to when or even if the annulment will ever be finalized? Most annulment process can take between 1 to 2 years and sometimes never get finalized by court rulings. Without any annulment paper work the U.S. Citizen sponsor will not be able to file a petition for alien fiancee?
Though it is very rare, it would be most unlikely that she would be approved to receive a B1/B2 Tourist visa to the U.S.A. The U.S. Embassy is very careful in their screening applicants trying to get the Tourist visa for many reasons. A total of 95% of all applicants are denied due to lack of evidence that they would return back to their Country when it is time? With a 5% success rate we agree that you would be wasting time and money trying to get the tourist visa.
U.S. Immigration law does have a proof of meeting requirement for couples that want to get married using the K1 Fiancee visa that allows your foreign bride to come to the U.S.A. to marry only you within the first 90 days. Some religious customs may prohibit the meeting in person for some couples due to followed teachings of religious countries.
This is a question we get every year? Many American guys want to come stay in the Philippines while they wait for their Filipina fiancee to get her U.S. Embassy Interview and then approved to receive a K1 Fiancee Visa to return to the U.S.A together. It can be done only by those of you who have an income while you are staying in the Philippines and someone back in the U.S.A can get your postal mail for you and send things to you online and in the mail as part of getting prepared for the interview?
Only the foreign fiancee is required to undergo a medical exam and attend the U.S. Embassy Interview in order to receive the K1 Fiancee visa. Sponsors are not required and there are no interviews in the U.S. for them to attend also. If the U.S.Citizen sponsor would like to attend the U.S Embassy Interview with the fiancee in the Philippines then in many cases, it is helpful, but not required.
Occasionally this happens and one must do everything on their end to get a petition filed to bring over the foreign fiancee before little junior decides to come out! The expecting mother will need a certified and notarized letter from the father to show the medical team at St. Luke’s clinic that the sponsor knows and accepts the unborn child? Next the mother needs to get her K1 Visa and head to the USA before she is too pregnant as airlines may refuse to let her on because of risk having the baby in mid air? If the child is not born in the U.S.A then they must be registered at the U.S. Consulate to receive a U.S. Passport the whole process may take an additional 3 months and requires DNA samples.
Philippines law does require that all of their younger citizens whether they marry locally or abroad have consent. If he or she is between the age of 18-22 they will be required to have an affidavit of support from the lawyer or attorney signed by one or two parents or legal guardian stating that they have counseled their son or daughter about getting married before hand. Anyone between ages 23-25 are only required to have verbal consent from their parents or legal guardian prior to getting married.
All applicants from age 16 and up regardless if they are applying for the K1 Fiancee visa or a spousal visa will be required in part with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to provide his or hers police records from the country they are a citizen in. The rule also applies to other countries lived in worked in for a period of no less than 6 months. If the foreign fiancee of spouse have other legal names from previous marriages or any other, then they must provide police records in those name also.
USCIS has a K Unit that tracks down multiple filers. If you have had an I-129F Petition approved recently meaning the petition got the “Go Ahead” but your alien fiancee and you had a change of heart, or you brought over your alien fiancee and things did not work out? Or you married but then divorced after a short time? You must wait for a period of two (2) years before you can file again. Or if you have good supporting evidence and documentation that supports a legitimate reason you could not marry or bring the alien fiancee over, then you can file a waiver without waiting for the two (2) years waiting time.
All Filipino Citizens who are desiring to get a specific visa bound to the United States, must attend the U.S. Embassy in Manila and also their medicals must be done at St. Luke’s in Manila. The Cebu City U.S. Consulate is only for American Citizens to go for specific benefits and is not used as a visa post. So regardless of where your alien fiancee lives, she will have to go to Manila to attend his or hers medical and interview.
Yes it is required to provide certified divorce decrees from each and every marriage you have had no matter how far back it goes? If USCIS finds all of you marriages and you fail to mention some or fail to provide certified divorce decrees of those, then your I-129F Petition will result in hold up or rejection?
There are many reasons that an alien fiancee needs to have a fair amount of English skills not only for attending a U.S. Embassy Interview but entering into their U.S. Port of entry. Almost all of the government paper work is done in English as well as interviews conducted in English. If she barely communicates in English and the U.S. Citizen Fiance only speaks English, well then the Interviewer will believe that she couldn’t possibly be able to have a sincere genuine relationship with him? The only exception would be if it is a U.S. Citizen Filipino who is native to her language.
No you are not required to marry your fiancée once they come to the United States. A fiancée Visa merely gives you permission to marry should you so desire. If you decide not to marry your fiancée the only requirement is that they must leave the United States before the Visa expires. Remember that the U.S. Citizen is the sponsor and you are required and responsible for the beneficiary by paying and sending them back at the appropriate time in order to keep your record clean in case you decide to petition another alien fiancee later on? It is also recommended that the sponsor make photo copies of all immigration paper work including your alien fiancees passport page as away to maintain those records as USCIS will require those in the future.
No, K1 visas are available only to persons who are planning to be married. If the marriage occurs, you will have to file an I-130 Relative Visa petition for your spouse. The one exception to this rule is that if the marriage was religious or social ceremony only, and the marriage wasn’t registered with the local government, a K1 visa may be issued.
Border Patrols are always on the look out for the following, false documents, fake ID’s, incomplete papers, the visitor does not look like the person in the pictures, transporting illegal items, may have a contagious decease or acting deranged. If they are using a K1 Fiancee visa and questioned about what the U.S. Citizen fiances address is, where do they work, what their phone numbers is and do not know or ask to repeat the questions over and over , then these are all red flags and deportation may be to follow?
The truth is, Couples who have large age differences may face more scrutiny than closer to same age couples? Although Interviewers for many years have been used to seeing wide age differences and accept it, provided the K1 Fiancee applicant can demonstrate that the couple has enough supporting documentation to prove the relationship is genuine and sincere? The only way a couple can do this is with time spent in emailing, sending postal letters, calling on a regular phone and sending each other gifts.
Denials are most certainly going to be announced to the applicant during the interview if the foreign fiancee has been caught lying about past or present things that pertain to either the relationship, employment, travel, addresses, criminality, other visa interviews also denials can be brought on by falsifying documents, falsifying government forms, falsifying police and national records, all which could even lead to prison time and hefty fines. A K1 Fiancee or child during a medical exam could even test positive for TB causing delays and sometimes denials. Admitting of drug use suicide in your past can also get your case denied.
Many foreign fiancees, especially from the Philippines have children born out of wedlock and are required to mention all children old and young on the petition, but are in no way obligated from a U.S. Immigration standpoint to bring their child or children to follow using the K2 Visa. A K2 Child would be considered her biological child from age 21 and under.
If the K1 Couple decides to hire FilAm Immigration Service to assist and guide them through the K1 Visa process, they will first be consulted over the phone about their case and to see if they have any hindering situations that would complicate, or otherwise get their petition rejected? One way or another we will let you know if your case has any positive or negative elements and if any of those could be fixed to better your situation or not? Couples who have no negative elements in their case are the ones we will give a 100% guarantee too?
From a U.S. Immigration standpoint, couples who do not share same religious beliefs do stand a possibility of being denied during a U.S. Embassy Interview? Though it is rare, Interviewers may ask the K1 Applicant if he or she shares the same religious beliefs as their U.S. fiance? Even though there are many Christian faiths, the best answer to give is yes we both are Christians and leave it at that.
According to U.S. Immigration a non related rule rather an adequate, is for the U.S. sponsor to contact the U.S. government agency that has his or her petition at the time of the change of heart? Your petition would start off at USCIS, later go to National Visa Center and essentially to the US Consulate of your alien fiancees country. Contacting them by email or letter requires having all of your correct credentials in order to identify that you really are the sponsor and a short letter explaining why you would like your petition to be terminated? By doing this it will insure you of being able to file for another foreign fiancee later on if so desired?
