K-1 Petitioner fingerprinting appointment?

4 posts in this topic

Hi --

I've heard some mixed information about whether or not the US Citizen petition for their fiance to come to the US is, in every case, requested to come for fingerprinting? Does anyone know whether they do this in every case, or just in some instances when they find a criminal record?

It is not in every case, and I am hearing this for the first time. I'm a citizen and when I filed for my fiancée, I was not required to come for any fingerprint. Although I don't know if they'll do that once they find any criminal case against the petitioner.

It is not done for every US Citizern. It is rarely done. Maybe it is done for a criminal record. Additionally, if the USC's name appears in a particular database or sets off a red flag during any search, the USC might be requested to go in for biometrics so that the identity is confirmed and their is no confusion.

This can extend the petition process depending on the type of hit in the database.

Good luck.
