Eligibility Criteria for K-3 Marriage Visas

To be eligible for a K-3 spouse visa, an individual must be married to a U.S. citizen and should have a pending Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative with U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS). The U.S. citizen spouse must complete and file Form I-130.

Procedure for K-3 Marriage Visa Application

The application for K-3 spouse visas begins with two distinct USCIS forms:

  1. Form I-130 – Upon receipt, USCIS will issue Form I-797, Notice of Action, confirming the form’s reception.
  2. Form I-129, Petition for Alien Fiancé – List any children the foreign spouse intends to bring to the U.S. on this form. These children can enter the U.S. with K-4 visas, which have a separate application procedure.

After form submission, various outcomes are possible based on your case specifics. Some include USCIS:

  • Requesting supplementary documentation
  • Requiring the foreign spouse to undergo medical examinations
  • Scheduling interviews
  • Issuing a decision on the petition.

The Los Angeles visa attorney at Hanlon Law Group specializes in assisting clients through the K-3 visa application process. We can:

  • Detail all K-3 spouse visa prerequisites, including potential medical exams
  • Prepare you for the interview by gathering all essential documents
  • Assist in applying for employment authorization and permanent resident status or a green card after acquiring a K-3 visa.

Additional Details on K-3 Spouse Visas

  • Duration and extensions of K-3 visas – Typically, K-3 spouse visas last for two years. Extensions are available for two more years if the I-130 marriage visa petition remains pending with USCIS.
  • Automatic K-3 visa expirations – Specific events can cause K-3 visas to expire automatically within 30 days. These events include:
    • Marriage dissolution (through annulment or divorce)
    • A USCIS denial of the I-130 marriage petition.
