Client: Adult Male U.S. Citizen Engaged to Chilean Citizen
Client’s Country of Origin: Chile
Case Type: I-29 Nonimmigrant Petition (K-1 Category for Fiancé)
Date of Application: May 14, 2014
Date of Approval: July 17, 2014
Our client retained Herman Legal Group to secure a status for his fiancé from Chile.
This type of case often leads to actual immigration. Therefore, veracity of materials presented are critical. We would prefer our clients to document their finances, keep photographic evidence of genuine relationship or courtship and email correspondence. Our case is only as strong as the evidence our clients offer. Though nationality may be a factor, in general, the stronger the case appears to a reviewer (often skeptic), the more likely your case will be approved. Since we cannot control the worldview of reviewers of fiancé status applications, the best thing applicants can do for themselves is document everything that makes them appear like a real couple.
We helped our client prove that their relationship was bona fide and the result of love and trust. That is, we helped him prove that he was in fact courting his fiancée, or was courted by his fiancé in good faith.
About two months later, our client’s fiancé received her status to stay in the U.S.
