Secure Your Future with the Help of Panteva Law Group, LLC
As a U.S. citizen, you can apply for a visa to bring your fiancé(e) to the United States in order to get married. The fiancé(e) visa is also known as the K-1 nonimmigrant visa.

What Are the Requirements to Obtain the K-1 Visa?

You may be eligible if:
