The Visas Behind TLC’s Show 90 Day Fiance

By Ella Bergquist June 16, 2020 (Updated July 28, 2020) 2 min. read
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

As you can see from above there is an extensive list of required documents for both K-1 Visa as well as the Adjustment of Status Marriage Green Card. Hiring a US Immigration Lawyer can help you organize your documents and get the best possible outcome for your visas. The USCIS is extremely strict with Marriage Fraud cases so they take a very close look at every relationship that applies for these types of visas.

Our experience with the team at VisaPlace has been absolutely amazing. Special thank you to Nadia Bakhtiari whom we had the pleasure of partnering with. Nadia was attentive, empathetic, knowledgeable, professional, friendly and accessible. She provided guidance and kept us in the loop every step of the way. We were so impressed with the professionalism and exceptional client experience from VisaPlace that we partnered with them for both our PR application and our citizenship application. Thank you VisaPlace and thank you Nadia!

We were switched legal teams 3 times within our time there.( This was not our doing) We weren’t impressed at all with the service almost all the way through our experience. Our review would have been 1 star. The response time was awful. To get in contact with our attorney was so difficult. And not thorough. Almost at the end, when we were almost ready to file, we got switched again, but this time, we are thankful. The attorney we got then was Andrew Diamond. He is fantastic and the reason for the 5 star rating. This is his rating. He was phenomenal. Absolutely amazing and prompt with response time and very knowledgeable, thorough and so helpful. We couldn’t have asked for better. Thank you Andrew for all you did for us!

I’m satisfied with the expertise and professionalism with which my case was managed and handled. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firm for its support. Although it has been a long process time due to Covid, Nadia has always been one of the first people to guide me step by step through the path during this stressful and unprecedented time. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Applying for my E2 Visa was so overwhelming for me. As soon as I engaged VisaPlace all that worry and stress was gone. They guided me through the entire process and set me up for success! I would 100% recommend using them for any of your Visa Needs.

I reached out to VisaPlace kind of on a whim, knowing that I needed to apply for permanent residency in order to stay with my spouse and our two cats. They were immediately and incredibly responsive, and almost instantly made me feel that I was dealing with professionals who cared about my case.

I reached out to them August last year, and today got the confirmation that my permanent residency has been approved. The people I worked with in VisaPlace stuck with me through the whole process, answering any questions and assuaging any fears that I had about the process, my application, or what I needed to do. Even when my anxiety made me snappy (I apologized immediately!) they handled my case and me with professionalism and compassion. Immigration is a stressful, scary process. I wanted professionals who knew the ins-and-outs so that I had the best chance of being able to come to Canada.

And now, I get to stay in Canada with my partner of nearly 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who wants immigration help! A big thank you, especially, to Alejandra and Nadia for handling my case. I’m so lucky to have had your help!
