The Visas Behind TLC’s Show 90 Day Fiance

90 day fiance

The TLC network has a very popular show called the 90 Day Fiance which is based on the immigration process of the K-1 Visa. The show debuted in January 2014 and has 7 seasons and 79 episodes. The show follows the lives of international couples who have applied or are applying for the K-1 Visa. The K-1 Visa allows US citizens to sponsor their fiance(e) to legally enter and live in the United States. However, the catch is that they must marry within 90 days of arriving in the US. After they marry then they may apply for a marriage green card in a process known as an adjustment of status. Once they adjust their status the foreign national will now be a legal permanent resident of the United States.

K-1 Visa Qualifications

Sometimes the 90 Day Fiance doesn’t show how extensive the application process for the K-1 can be. In order to qualify for a K-1 Visa the international couple must meet special criteria:

90 Day Fiance Visa

Failure to Marry Within 90 Days

Sometimes the 90 Day Fiance show doesn’t exactly go as planned and the couples do not marry. So what does this mean? It is called “Failure to Marry Within 90 Days”. K-1 visas automatically expire after the 90 days and cannot be extended for any reason. If you did not marry within the 90 days then the foreign fiance(e) and his or her children must leave the United States at the end of the 90 days. If they do not depart then they will be in violation of the US Immigration Law which will result in removal or deportation which could affect their future eligibility for any further visits to the US.

Green Card After Marriage on 90 Day Fiance

After entering the United States on the K-1 Visa and marrying a US Citizen the foreign fiance(e) can apply for a lawful permanent resident status in the United States. There are several requirements to qualify for an adjustment of status after marrying within the US. Learn more about the requirements of the Green card Marriage.

If you married in the US under the K-1 Visa then you will want to adjust your status as soon as possible to stay in the US. In order to qualify for the US Marriage Green Card there are several documents required. Learn more about the US Marriage Green Card.

Hiring an Immigration Lawyer for K-1 Visa or Marriage Green Card

I got my US L1 Visa through them, pretty smooth process. We weren’t sure they’d take our case as we had some issues with retrieving some documents, but they worked with us on getting everything we needed. Recommend.

Allow me to express that our case proved to be more complex than initially anticipated. However, Aisha and Reena provided unwavering support throughout the entire process. At each juncture, they offered clear guidance on necessary actions, guiding us through the intricacies we couldn’t navigate independently. While the procedure proved more intricate than expected, our legal team maintained close communication, ensuring we were well-informed and adequately prepared. Confronted with challenges, they approached them with a positive attitude, instilling confidence through their professionalism and competence. I wholeheartedly recommend their services. While moments of stress were inevitable, their assurance and ability to convey that confidence were instrumental. Reflecting on the experience, I am certain we would not have succeeded without their assistance, or at the very least, the journey would have been significantly prolonged.
