Has anyone had a baby while trying to bring their fiancé on a k1 visa? Would it cause any problems in the case? 

Normally, baby is not a problem, of course, there some extra info/paperwork you will need to do.  However, some cultures may consider having a baby as “too married” for K-1.

 

The USC parent may be able to pass citizenship to the baby.

Only "problems" are mostly with paperwork for the child - typically a CRBA + passport if they can derive citizenship from the USC parent, or a K-2 visa if not. Depending on the circumstances, there may or may not be a DNA test.

 

Otherwise, the vaccinations may not all be possible to complete at the time of the medical. Some may have to be done later, which is an extra fee, some calls, and paperwork.

Depending on the timing, you may not be able to fly at the desired time, although this is just a few weeks.

Pregnancy or another child may be considered in the public charge concern.

Problems? No more problems than any other new parent experiences. You will need to take a good luck at your finances. People arriving here on K-1 visas cannot work for several months. That’s difficult enough financially for many couples as it is, without a baby in the mix too. Also adjusting to a new language and culture and adjusting to parenthood at the same time could be stressful.

 

If you are hoping it will speed up your fiancé’s AP, it won’t.

Well I’m not too concerned about the child, because I gave birth to the baby here in the United States, and I am the United States citizen, I was born and raised in the United States. It’s my fiancé ( the baby’s dad) that lives in Germany.

I’m not hoping it’ll speed up the AP process, I’m just worried it’s not the cause for a denial, that’s all.

Then the only issue is the increased burden for a public charge for the I-864. But if income/assets are fine, then it's not actually an issue.
