The Fiancé(e) Filing Process
U.S. citizens may ask the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to allow a fiancé(e) to come to the U.S. to be married. The process begins by filing a petition at the appropriate USCIS Service Center. Upon approval, your petition will be assigned to the American Consulate General or Embassy or Consulate in your fiancé(e)’s home country and he or she will apply for a K-1 visa, enter the U.S., conclude the qualifying marriage within 90 days of admission, adjust status to lawful permanent residence at the appropriate USCIS District Field Office, and receive a green card.
Unmarried children under the age of 21 may travel to the U.S. with his or her fiancé(e) parent and also receive status as a permanent resident.
