Obtaining visas for foreign-born spouses in South Carolina

There are avenues by which a United States citizen may seek permission for a foreign spouse or fiancé(e) to immigrate. It may even be possible to bring their minor children to the country as you start a new life together. However, immigration law can be complicated, making it important to be thorough and accurate as you complete the paperwork needed in seeking proper permissions.

One of the most stressful elements of the immigration process is the uncertainty. Not knowing whether approval will be granted can be frustrating and even frightening as your plans are on hold until the matter is decided. It is helpful to explore all options available so that the most favorable result can be sought. Completing the proper forms is important, and substantiation of facts such as your own U.S. citizenship is a priority. Additionally, you will need to establish the timing during which you met your fiancé(e), providing an expected date to marry within 90 days of arrival of the fiancé(e) in the country. It is also necessary to show that you are financially capable of supporting your future spouse.

The typical K-1 or K-3 visa application approval takes between five and six months. Any terminated prior marriages must be accurately documented. Additionally, you must prove that your marriage is a bona fide relationship rather than a marriage of convenience to facilitate an individual's immigration.
