A k-1 visa can be extremely important for some who are passionate about getting married in the United States. Are you one of them and often come across the question of whether you should hire an immigration attorney for your visa application or not? This article would be an excellent read for you as you will know what services an immigration lawyer would offer and how to choose your immigration attorney wisely.
Why is a K visa so crucial for some couples?
The K visa is not only about getting married in the United States; it is more about getting your dreams come true, making your choice destination for marriage, and processing your marriage green card from inside the United States.
For most couples that come to the US on K 1 visa, they want to settle in the United States after getting married, and applying for an immigrant visa from outside the US could take more time and also, the foreign spouse has to stay in their home country until the USCIS made a decision on their immigrant visa petition.
Therefore, we strongly advise couples to apply for a marriage-based green card after getting married on a K-1 visa and then apply for a job in the US. In this way, most foreign citizen fiancé can settle in the US without waiting too long outside the US.

Arranging documents and filing petitions
Once you are done with the consultation, the next step is to gather all the essential documents required to get your petition successful. For example, For the I-129F petition (which is the first step to getting your K 1 visa), the United States citizen sponsor has to submit the following set of documents along with the petition:
- Proof of your US Citizenship (Passport or naturalization certificate)
- Proof of bonafide relationship (Photos, travel itineraries, testimonials from friends and families, etc.)
- Proof that you and your alien fiancé have ended previous marriages, if any. (Divorce or court documents, death certificates)
- Proof of meeting in person at least once in the last 2 years (Photos, travel tickets, etc.)
- Sworn statements and evidence of your intention to get married within 90 days of entry into the US
- Passport style photos
- Copy of passport of your foreign fiancé.
Herman Legal Group makes sure that you have a complete list of documents and satisfactory evidence ready before filling your petition. Once we are satisfied with this, we file your I-129F petition (which the US citizen will sponsor) and send it to the USCIS.
Regularly updating clients about any changes and updates.
The US immigration laws are subject to change, and the processing time of each visa will be different at different times of years. We will update you with the expected waiting time, and if you get any update from the USCIS, such as a receipt letter or RFE (Request for Evidence), you can consult again with our attorneys regarding that.
Help in filing DS 160 and arranging documents for the Interview
Your foreign citizen fiancé has to appear for a K visa interview once the USCIS has approved your I 129f petition and sent it to the US Department of State National visa center, which then will schedule a visa interview for your foreign fiancé at the nearest US embassy or consulate.
However, before that, your foreign fiancé has to complete Form DS 160, which is an online nonimmigrant visa application or actual K visa application, and gather documents to take to the interview. Again our immigration experts will verify the list of documents that your foreign fiance will take to the interview so that they can focus on the interview.
Preparing for the Visa Interview
We have witnessed people panicking because of the interview as they fear that something might go wrong at the interview and they will get their visa rejected. Therefore, we also consult your foreign citizen fiancé to get prepared for their fiancé visa interview by telling them the possible questions that could be asked at the interview and conducting mock interviews.

Filing Appeals if Any
We are most confident that our applications will not require any appeals; however, in unfortunate cases, the USCIS determining officer may deny the application. You do not have to worry about that because they will state the reasons for the denial and whether we can appeal the decision or not.
Wherever possible, our lawyers will file an appeal for your petition to the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) and hope that the AAO will overturn the previous decision by the USCIS determining officer.
