Six Fiancé K-1 Visa Considerations For Couples

Immigration decisions are rarely simple. 

For instance, take a couple who fall in love.  One person is a U.S. citizen living in the United States, the other lives in another country. 

They decide to get married. They have two options.

They can get married abroad. Then the U.S. citizen can file a marriage-based petition for their spouse.

Or the citizen could petition their loved one as a fiancé to enter the U.S. and get married her

To make their decision, such couples have six items to weigh: three legal requirements and three personal considerations.
