7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi i would like somebody to help me with this k-3 visa, somebody who has done it recently, im hearing different stories all the time and i dont know what to do :wacko: . I have a boyfriend who lives in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and we are planning to get married this winter and start working on k-3 visa around summer of next year. I am a U.S Citizen. How long is the process approximetly? I heard in order to bring your spouse to U.S.A you need to have 10,000$ on your bank or they dont care about how much money you have I am starting college this August, i dont have a job now, im on lay-off :(.i hope ill find one untill we start working on it, With this economy its kind of hard now to find a job. I mean it sounds maybe stupid but in the beginning my parents are giving us all the support untill me and him are stable enough to live alone. or does somebody think that will effect the visa if i say that i will have my parents support, what documents do i need to submitt? but some people say that k-1(fiance) visa is much easier and better ? is that true?

For a household of 2 (you and boyfriend) you will need to show current, ongoing income of at least $18,212.00 or have a co-sponsor.

If you want to qualify on assets (cash savings, investments, property, etc.) the cash value of those assets needs to be 3 times the amount of needed income.

Read the Guides here on VJ to educate yourselves before beginning the process. Don't forget to budget for all the fees involved as well.

Best of luck.

All that information is available if you read this website. Start with the K3 Guide section which will tell you about the requirements. The processing time varies depending on which Service Center you would be using (depending on where in the US you live) and whether or not there are anything special about your case. You can view how long cases are taking by visiting the Proccesing time section of all places. Having a specific amount in your bank is not necessary, but you would need to show you had an adequate income capapble of supporting your spouse. If you do not make enough to qualify you can have co-signers. Everyone wants their visas processed yesterday void of any complications - but there are no magic bullets. Start reviewing everything now so that when you marry your boyfriend you will be able to have all the paperwork ready to send in. The sooner everything gets started the sooner it will be done - provided you follow the correct steps.

Good luck.

They just want me to go to college now, and not worry about job, they said that they could sign and say they will help us with everything, but i dont know if they can do that or if that would effect the visa process

Depending on the family size living in the house hold...if its mom,dad,future husband and you then you would need to be at $27,562 in income. For every other person living in the house you have to include them as well.

Keep in mind if they sign the I-864 then they are signing support for upto 10 years for you husband, regardless of divorce.

I would stay away from the K3 as it is much more expensive in the long run. The only advantage is it's a little faster 1-2 months but a CR1 is much much better.

Welcome to VJ.

Good advice but you'll want to follow the IR1/CR1 guide. K3 is a virtually obsolete visa category. Seems like I'm still typing that at least once a day, twice in the last five minutes.
