K1 Visa Holder Interviews: 90-Day Fiancé(e)s

  • The reader has the DUTY/RESPONSIBILITY to verify information from the aforementioned government agencies on their own - Not through hearsays, forums, or blogs (YES, including this blog). Please read my disclaimer here.
  • Make sure you've read ALL the articles under the "Immigration" Menu up top, because I've written and covered all pertinent information about the whole I-129F/K1/AOS/ROC Processes.
  • Search through Frequently Asked Questions about the whole process from I-129F - K1 Visa - AOS - ROC and other processes. Read about the KnowledgeBase here »
  • The articles found on this blog are applicable to all I-129F Petitions, K1 Visa Applicants, AOS (from a K1 Visa), and ROC applicants unless otherwise noted. The I-129F Process and AOS is the same for all foreign beneficiaries/spouses. Some K1 Visa Process articles are written specifically for applicants from the Philippines. Please refer to your country's U.S. Consulate/Embassy website for country-specific instructions.

By now, you already know that K1 Fiancé(e) Visa Holders have only 90 days to marry their foreign fiancé(e)s thus the term 90-day fiancé(e). Below you will find a list of interviews of past/current Visa Holders who are now happily married to their then-fiancé(e)’s. We will release one (1) couple’s story on a weekly bi-monthly basis. (…Or whenever I can work on the blog. Sorry! I’m getting pretty busy with work and wifely duties!) Scheduled dates are not final. They can be switched around. If you want to share your story and be featured here, please send me an email through the contact form.


Why are we doing this?

To educate the public of what the K1 Fiancé(e) Visa really is. Our aim is to bring you full stories – from the start of our relationships, filing the petitions, acquiring the K1 visa, getting married, our struggles with moving to the U.S., and the processes we still have to go through after moving. We hope that by reading through it, people will understand that the immigration processes we’ve gone/still are going through is no easy matter. We left our families, our jobs, our careers back in our home country to be with the one we love.


These are our stories.

Real Life. Real Couples. Not the *cough-edited-cough* drama you see on TV. (No, I’m not saying that they’re not real couples, nor their struggles are fake… but the show hasn’t been entirely clear about the whole immigration process nor the true nature of the K1 Fiancé(e) Visa.)
