She specializes in marriage petitions for same-sex couples.
K-1 FIANCE(E) VISAS
A United States citizen may apply for a fiance(e) visa on behalf of his or her partner abroad. Lawful permanent residents cannot file fiance visas on behalf of their partners outside the U.S.
The fiance visa process requires that you have met or visited your future spouse in person within the past two years and that you demonstrate proof of a good faith
relationship, such as photographs, wire transfers, phone/Skype records, e-mails, joint travel itineraries etc. The United States citizen files a petition (known as Form I-129F) in the United
States with USCIS which is normally adjudicated within 5-7 months. The approved I-129F petition is then sent to the local consulate with jurisdiction over the fiance for an interview and
issuance of the K-1 fiance visa. The couple must then marry within 90 days of the entry on the fiance visa.
Mrs. Westerman-Keuning has helped countless couples obtain fiance(e) visas through their home consulates.
