Understanding The Different Types Of Visas

Depending on your situation, there are many different types of visas available for families. Fernanda can talk you through them. As an immigrant, she knows how confusing the process can be. That is why she is here to explain the choices you are facing and help you decide what will work best for your family. Typically, you will have to choose from the following:

K1 visas (fiancé): If you are a U.S. citizen with a fiancé who is a citizen of another country, you may be able to bring them to the U.S., on a temporary K1 fiancé visa prior to getting married. You must prove that you have met in person at least once before your fiancé arrives in the United States.

K3 visas (spouse): If you are a U.S. citizen with a spouse or child overseas, you may be able to bring your family to the U.S. on a temporary K3 spouse visa.

Removing conditions of residence: If you gained conditional permanent residence through marriage with a U.S. resident or U.S. citizen, you get a green card that is valid for two years. You cannot renew a conditional green card. To have the conditions removed from your permanent resident status, you must file a petition within the 90-day period before your conditional green card expires and submit proof of your marriage. If your conditions are not removed, you will lose your permanent resident status and will be removable from the U.S.

There are certain exceptions to this process. You can still apply even if you are not married anymore or in the process of getting a divorce. If that’s the case, you have to meet very strict requirements for USCIS to remove the conditions and renew your green card.
