CASE: Fiancé Visa
PETITIONER: US Citizen in Cleveland Ohio
PETITION FILED: February 16, 2016
PETITION APPROVED: April 18, 2016
K-1 VISA APPROVED: July 1, 2016
Our client, a US Citizen Petitioner, met her Italian fiancé in the airplane in 2013. They started their relationship, and she visited Italy. They have lived together in Italy and have two kids together. However, they did not get married yet. In 2016, they decided to get married and our client decided to file a fiancé petition for her fiancé. She retained our firm to file a fiancé petition for him on February 4, 2016.
After retention, we informed our client about the necessary supporting documents to demonstrate the bona fide nature of their relationship. We helped her and her fiancé draft letters in support of the fiancé petition, and we filed the petition on February 16, 2016.
On April 18, 2016, little after two months of filing, the I-129F fiancée petition was approved. On July 1, 2016, our client’s fiancé appeared at the U.S. Consulate in Naples, Italy for his K-1 visa interview. The interview went well, and on July 1, 2016, the U.S. Embassy issued his K-1 visa. After the issuance of K-1 visa, our client’s fiancé came to the United States. They married on August 11, 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio and our client’s husband filed I-485 adjustment of status application to get his green card.
