Oh yeah she can file  for you and there is no any problems about it even if you been knowing each other for a eight months or a yeah .

I said yes because they been known each other for about nine years and is only two years and four months she did not pay him a visit , may be due to financial reasons or whatever , But they are still talking as couples  and do get a lot of things going on between them .

He did not said they are separated or having problems between them .

The K1 requirements are pretty clear, and are not misleading, which includes having to have met in person within 2 years prior to submitting your application. It does not matter if you've been in a relationship for that long, or longer, or have had particular circumstances causing you to have not been together in person during that time - you either have, or you haven't. You can certainly apply if you haven't, but you will be denied, and the application fee is nonrefundable.


Håll ut, y'all.

None of this matters. 


The requirement of a K1 visa is that the couple have to physically be in the same place at least once within 2 years of filing the petition.    You're probably trying to be kind, but you're also dead wrong and should read up on the process and requirements.

Actually the OP didn't say anything about still talking or things going on between them or that they were separated or having problems.  The OP did not elaborate on the status of his relationship at all other than he has not been physically present with his girlfriend in 2 years and 4 months, but they've been a couple for 9 years.   Because he has not been physically present with his girlfriend for over 2 years it would be a waste of money to file the I-129F at this point and have it denied.
