The petitioner files a petition with USCIS for the foreign fiancé. The petitioner must be a USC. The following requirements must be satisfied for USCIS to approve the petition.

The petitioner is at least 18 years;
That each party is free to marry;
That the petitioner and foreign fiancé intend to marry each other within 90 days of the foreign fiancé being admitted to the US;
That the petitioner and foreign fiancé have met in person within the past 2 years unless the parties qualify for and obtain a waiver of the meeting requirement;
Unmarried children of the foreign fiancé who was granted a K-1 visa are entitled to K-2 visas to accompany or follow-to-join the foreign fiancé's parent.
Our team is prepared to help you or your fiancé file a petition for a U.S. visa.
If the parties marry within the 90 days, the foreign spouse who obtained the K-1 visa must apply for adjustment of status and follow the procedure and requirements to obtain permanent residence.
After the parent has been married all K-2 visa holders are entitled to adjust their status even if the K2 visa holder was over 21 years when the adjustment application was adjudicated provided that the K-2 visa holder entered the US before turning 21. It does not matter if the parent’s marriage was after the K-2 was 18 years. The K-2 visa holder must follow the adjustment of status procedure.
