So you're a K-1 Visa holder - have you entered the US yet? (If so, what is the expiration date of the I-94 that is stapled inside your passport?)

The expiration date on the I-94 (not the visa) is the date you need to marry by (or on if you want).

Relax. Intent to marry within 90 days is required, but once the fiance(e) enters, failure to get married within 90 days does not eliminate the opportunity to later get married and file for adjustment of status, but your K-1 status will expire.

Then you should be OK - you'll need to be certain the date that is recorded as your marriage date is on/before the expiration of your I-94. In other words - you do not want that date to reflect the 25th or later. (If it is recorded as the 24th, you're fine.)

That's not exactly true - failure to marry within the 90-days (by the time the I-94 expires) will mean a new process. Involving an I-130/I-485 etc.

Yes, it can still be done (marry then AOS etc) but isn't something you want to look forward to.
