Fiancée Visa Granted to Our Client’s Chilean Fiancée
Client: U.S. citizen fiancé
Location: Columbus, Ohio
Case Type: I-129 Nonimmigrant Petition (for Fiancée under K-1 Category)
BACKGROUND: Our client retained us to secure a status for his fiancée from Chile.
Date of Application: May 14, 2014
Date of Approval: July 17, 2014
WE HELPED OUR CLIENT prove that their relationship is bona fide and the result of love and trust. That is, we helped him prove that his was in fact courting his fiancée or was courted by his fiancée in good faith.
CHALLENGE: This type of case often leads to actual immigration. Therefore, veracity of materials presented are critical. We would prefer our clients to document their finances, keep photographic evidence of genuine relationship or courtship and email correspondence. Our case is only as strong as the evidence our clients offer. Though nationality may be a factor, in general, stronger the case appears to a reviewer (often skeptic), more likely your case will be approved. Since we cannot control the worldview of reviewers of fiancée status application, the best thing applicants can do for themselves is to document everything that make them appear like a real couple.
ABOUT TWO MONTHS LATER, our client’s fiancée received her status to stay in the U.S. with her fiancé.
