The K-1 is valid for six months before travel. Once you get there, you will need to get married in the first 90 days.

Since he is military, he can probably get some sort of extension. Have the petitioner contact USCIS to see what you can do.


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

WARNING: Phrases in this post may sound meaner than they were intended to be. Read the Adjudicator's Field Manual from USCIS

Not sure how the US military does it, but i recall the UK military have what is called a families officer who deals with matters pertaining to family issues - it may be worth contacting his CO who could probably point him in the direction of someone who is aware of how to deal with such situations.

Good Luck

USCIS tends to work with service members doing visa petitions and being deployed.

i really don't think the chain of command gets involved much other than writing a memorandum.

for the op of the thread:

a brief search on the word "deploy" in this forum generates quite a few threads concerning this topic

link

pdf info link

another info link, not pdf

also for the op, keep this in mind:

For the benefit of others, I should probably also add that the expedite needs to be requested through the USCIS ...and then again at each stage of the process thereafter. It will not just happen because they have a deployment letter on file with your petition.

The CoC has full authority to modify a persons deployment status.

ah that's what you were talking about - i took it to mean them getting involved in the expedite process.

I don't think you should have any problems because he's not active. We were wondering the same thing, although we decided to just get married and then file for CR-1 because although the wait is longer, it's a better visa in the end. Good luck!

Depends on the fowardly deployed gaining commander. Make sure he contacts his CoC in his deployed location. One CO stateside can tell you one thing, and the deployed CO could be directing you to another. When it comes to deployments, it best to get that stuff done prior to him leaving, or better when he gets back.

My husband is deployed too. We actually wanted to get my visa a couple of months before he got deployed so we had time to get married, send AOS papers and do everything for me to settle in. I've lived alone before too so it adjusting wasn't a big problem.

If your fiance is getting deployed then you can put in a request for military expedite for your K1. If he gets deployed after you come here. He will still know about the deployment a few months in advance. That will give you both time to prepare for it. The most important thing before he goes is - get married, get SSN, get Military dependants ID for you and add you on all his papers, send AOS package. The rest, his friends and family can help you with.

If you need any help, just send me a message, I can help you with what to do, been there, done that. All the best!
