If you can't fulfill the K1 requirements upon her entry to US then she must return home. If you get back before her I-94 expires and got married then resume as usual.

Good luck!

Sorry to hear that.

K-1 visa are visa issued to alien fiance(e) to enter in the USA and marry within 90 days of his/her arrival into the States.And k-1 visas are only single entry visas.If you and your fiance(e) could not marry within that period,he or she needs to go back to his country of origin.

Now talking about what happen if you both get together again...The embassy will be reluctant issuing another visa but it does not mean they wont issue.i can advice if you both can get marry in your fiance(e)country of origin and live together there.You could then apply from the consular together and you would have much chances to make it easier for both of you to relocate to US.

NB:I AM NOT A LAWYER AND ALL IS BASED ON MY PERSONAL RESEARCHES FROM USCIS PAGES

Good Luck.

The main question IMO here is how long she was in the country. If you never got married and she stayed longer than 90 days, she would have been out of status and accumulated unlawful presence - She may be subject to a bar from re-entry. Depending on how long she overstayed, this could be a very serious problem potentially.

If she entered with the intent to marry you, things went sour and you didn't get married, and she left the country within 90 days, she has done nothing illegal. She will still be eligible for a new visa - be it K-1 or CR-1 or any other visa. She cannot re-enter on the same K-1 visa, they are single entry, and are effectively worthless once used. You'll be starting the process again from scratch.

Note: Being eligible to apply for a visa, and actually being granted a visa are two very different things. If you decide to give the wedding another go, you can refile the I-129f for another K-1 visa for her. If there aren't any issues with overstay, you should still expect to be scrutinized as to the seriousness of the relationship. The USCIS and consulates do understand that some times, things don't go according to plan, but they'll want to make sure you're actually for real this time. Expect a bigger burden to prove a legitimate relationship this time around. Best of luck to you.
