Getting a K-1 visa after the marriage

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

It's been a while since I've posted anything, I'm trying to help out a friend living in Nicaragua who wants to bring his new wife to Puerto Rico to visit me. He tried to get a visitors visa but was turned down.

At the embassy someone told him since he has been married for a short time, he could apply for a K-1 visa. Has anyone ever been told they could get a K-1 visa after they were married?

To me, it doesn't sound right, I have a real lack of trust with the US embassy in Nicaragua they lied to me in the past. Any light on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

The K-1 is for couples who are engaged and who plan on marry in the US within 90 days of arrival and adjust status.

Your friend doesn't fit in with any of those things. The K-1 is definitely not for him.

K-1: 12-22-2015 - 09-07-2016 (260 days)

AP: 12-20-2016 - 04-07-2017 (108 days)

EAD: 01-18-2017 - 05-30-2017 (132 days)

AOS: 12-20-2016 - 07-26-2017 (217 days)

ROC: 04-22-2019 - 04-22-2020 (365 days)

nope, that person doesn't have a clue, the k1 is a fiancé visa to marry in the US, they have to be unmarried, get the visa and then marry and adjust status in the US

it's not for visiting and not for married people

the only visa for visiting is a tourist visa, she can try again in the future, if something changes
