:help::help: My wife's friend recently immigrated to the US on a K1 visa and when she got here her fiancee decided he didn't want to get married. She has been here about 1 month does she have to return to China or can she marry another US citizen and Adjust status while staying in the US? Of course she only has about 60 days left, but I suppose it is possible to find and marry someone in that short of time.

as per K1 req's... she can only marry the petitioner. She has to return. If she does not after the 90 days, she is out of status and subject to deportation.

That is correct the K1 is only for beneficiary to marry the petitioner nothing else when 90 days up need to return home, or be out of status.
If the relationship fails before the green card is received, there are no other options for adjustment and the K-1 spouse has to leave the US.

Unfortunately, K-1 benes are at the mercy of the petitioner. Should petitioner get cold feet about marriage, bene is basically SOL. :( :(

hipcat,

Point of clarification: no, she did not immigrate to the US.

Stepping out of character for a moment and making a judgement based on insufficient information - the guy is a cad, no matter what his reason for changing his mind. He has done this woman a terrible disservice.

I think that is why you have 90 days to get married. To get to know each other, But in my opinion, you should already know each other before even applying. She must leave the US if they do not marry in 90 days. If she fails to leave, she is out of status and subject to deportation and probably put on a list for no future visa of any kind.

Tim&Poonam,

No, getting to know each other is not why K1s have 90 days to get married. Knowing each other and a firm intention to marry is explicit in the definition of a K1 visa.

But that is not to say that people cannot change their minds, as this fellow did.

I think the first "he" was a typo. The poster refers to the K-1 as a "she" in the rest of the post.

K-1 Timeline in Profile (our story)

Church wedding Sept 18

NOA1's for AOS/EAD received Sept 20 MSC #

Biometrics completed Nov 5 2004

EAD Approval Dec 29 2004

AOS appointment letter received Feb 3 2005

AOS interview scheduled for March 9 2005

AOS interview mostly fine, just need I-693 supplement filled out by civil surgeon

Spend another $40 for I-693 form, sent to local USCIS office registered mail, arrived March 11 2005

AOS finally approved March 25th 2005

Green card arrives about 10 days later

!!Green card has incorrect middle name!! Thanks USCIS

Travel back to Denver, turn in card and I-90 to correct their mistake.

Application accepted, asked for I-551 stamp, they told me "We don't do stamps anymore"

NOA1 for I-90 received from NSC April 18 2005, fee waived

NSC appears to have stoped processing I-90's

Marilyn needs to travel back to the RP, call Senators office for help with green card or I-551 stamp

Travel back to Denver July 1, 2005 and received I-551 stamp in the passport.

Marilyn and Peter,

The 'he' is perfectly correct. The error was in calling him, the USC petitioner, a "fiancee" - he was the fiance.
