Why Choose Us?

If your spouse or future spouse is a foreign citizen and you are a U.S. citizen, you have a few options for legally bringing them to the United States with a temporary immigrant visa. Consult our experienced immigration attorney to determine which option is best for you and your family. Some options require you to submit a K1 - K3 Visa petition to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on behalf of your spouse or fiancé. The marriage overseas or in the United States will determine which application suits your situation.

Navigating the process of obtaining a conditional permanent resident status, also known as a Conditional Green Card, can be complicated if you do not have the guidance of an experienced immigration attorney. Call (714) 868-8250 to schedule a consultation with our attorneys at Garcia & Phan.

K1 - K3 Visa Visa FAQ

The K1 Visa permits a foreign citizen fiancé(e) to marry a U.S. citizen within 90 days of entering the country. The immigrant spouse may apply for a green card after marriage. Requirements for a K1 visa:

  • The U.S. sponsor must file Form I-129F with the USCIS on behalf of their fiancé(e).

  • The U.S. citizen and foreign citizen must be legally permitted to marry in the U.S. state where the marriage will take place.

  • The U.S. and foreign citizens must have met face-to-face within the past two years.

When a U.S. citizen marries a foreign citizen abroad, the foreign spouse may enter the United States as a non-immigrant until the K-3 application is approved. This visa is intended to reunite spouses and families, granting a foreign national faster access to conditional or permanent U.S. residency, depending on the length of their marriage. Upon arrival in the United States, the foreign national may apply to change their visa status to permanent resident.


Requirements for a K-3 visa application include the following:


  • The couple must qualify as spouses in the country where the marriage took place, and the foreigner must apply for a K-3 visa.

  • The U.S. citizen must file Form I-130 to sponsor the foreign spouse.

We have been waiting over a year to hear about my husbands case. Left several messages.Finally had mediation today; this is an of Juan’s expertise areas.Seems our insurance company isn’t as customer friendly has we were lead to believe. Juan came through under tough circumstances. I’m glad we stuck it out with him. Hopefully we can all put this behind us.
