Why an Immigration Lawyer is Essential for Your Fiance’s Petition

On Behalf of | Apr 1, 2022 | Firm News

While the process of bringing your fiancé to the United States may seem like a guarantee, it’s important to remember that the application process is just that – an application, not a guarantee. You may be surprised to hear that almost 40 percent of K-1 visa applicants are denied. With a litany of forms, documents, and other paperwork necessary to ensure that the process goes smoothly, it’s crucial that you and your fiance have the representation necessary to navigate the application and give them their best chance at approval.

Why are K Visas Denied?

The most common reason for the denial of a K-1 visa application is because the relationship is believed to be illegitimate. Immigration officers are very vigilant in seeking out signs that your relationship is not as strong as you suggest, because these visas are frequent targets for immigration fraud. As such, one of the most important parts of this application process is to bring enough evidence of your relationship. This documentary evidence is a key point to proving your relationship is strong, and that your relationship will continue after your significant other is brought into the United States. A reputable immigration attorney should assure that you have more than enough evidence to bring to your interview and make a strong case for your relationship.

The Process is Complicated

As with any visa application, the process has many steps which need to be followed carefully in order to avoid a delay, or worse, a denial. A denial could lead to your significant other being stuck abroad for a long period of time. Many applicants believe that the application and interview are the entirety of their involvement, but there are also multiple fees, medical exams, and other requirements that you must fulfill to successfully to receive a fiance visa.

Your fiance’s visa isn’t something you should leave up to chance. If you’re seeking a visa for your fiance, contact Rotella & Hernandez today at 305-596-3618 to schedule a consultation.
