Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I was wanting to know if anyone knows if there is a limit of how long your Fiance can say in the home country once the K-1 Visa is receiced before she leaves for USA? My fiance has things she has to take care of like Real Estate once the K-1 is received and i dont want to put the K-1 in jepoardy of being expired.

Thanks

My husband recieved his Visa July 05, he arrived in the States in Oct. 05, we married in Nov. 05, filed for AOS Feb 06, recieved green card July 06.

Just remember the closer the arrival date to the expire date on the K-1 the shorter of a time to plan for a wedding if you still are needing to plan..

The Visa is good only for 90 days entry into the US so you must marry before the 90 days expires.

moondancer,

How does the time between arrival date and visa expiration date affect the time to plan for a wedding? As you say, there's 90 days allowed from entry to marriage, no matter when the visa expires. (Indeed, if planning can be in progress before the alien fiance(e) arrives in the USA, the closer arrival is to visa expiration the more time there is to plan.)

moondancer,

What's that got to do with it? The closer the arrival in USA date is to the visa expiration date the more, not less, time there is to plan the wedding if planning starts when the visa is issued.

Just remember the closer the arrival date to the expire date on the K-1 the shorter of a time to plan for a wedding if you still are needing to plan..

If planning doesn't start until the alien fiance(e) arrives in the USA it makes no difference whatsoever how close the arrival date is to the visa expiration date.

OK, so, to be clear, the 90 day clock on the legal wedding & filing for AOS does not start until my bao bei steps off the plane in the USA?

My fiancee was granted her K-1 on 30 May 2007; the six month clock expires 30 November 2007. She won't get here until 26 November 2007. I couldn't determine for certain whether or not those clocks expire at the same time. It wouldn't be a record, but getting the legal wedding done and the AOS filed in two days would be Herculean.

You've got it. Also, it's good to get the AOS filed within the 90 days after arrival but that's not critical.
