Applying for a fiancé visa to the U.S.

Many people in California who are planning to be married may wonder how they can bring their fiancé or fiancée to the United States. A fiance visa is an option for people planning to get married soon, and it is officially known as a K-1 nonimmigrant visa. In order to petition for a K-1 visa for a fiancé, people must fill out a Petition For Alien Fiancé(e), Form I-129F, and submit it to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The form is the first step towards obtaining a fiancé visa.

Tips for the spousal immigration process

Some California residents may not realize how long the immigration process can be until they attempt to obtain a visa for a foreign spouse. Even the official time frames provided by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service can make it look as though the processing times are fairly reasonable. However, since getting permission for a spouse to live in the United States is generally a multi-step process, it can take longer.

Proposed immigration plan could kick people off waiting lists

Some California immigrants who have been on years-long waiting lists for green cards may be thrown off the lists entirely as part of a proposed Trump administration immigration policy. Immigrants would be required to re-apply under the new system, and while some might subsequently face a shorter wait time, others might not be eligible at all.
