family in the USA

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

It's not a tourist visa, so having family here doesn't affect with the decision in any way. A K1 visa is a dual intent visa, meaning that even though it's a nonimmigrant visa, it's for the sole purpose of traveling to the US to marry and adjusting status to an LPR. The decision is only based on meeting all of the requirements and the legitimacy of your relationship proven to the satisfaction of the CO.


This does not constitute legal advice.

Doesn't matter ........but if there is family here AND you can't prove a legitimate relationship (to yourself)....one might surmise that she is using you to get an opportunity to join them here......and you'd be left out in the cold.

See, you are over thinking this. Focus on your relationship and your future life together.....there is a lot to go over for her to life here and you both should be discussing all (none visa related).
