Attorney Famuyide Wins A Complicated Fiancée Case

fianceeThe fiancée visa was created years ago to help couples who are in a hurry to be together with their proposed spouse in the United States quicker than it will take to file, and obtain permanent resident status. Some of these immigrants actually want to conduct their wedding ceremonies in the United States; the fiancée visa was created to bring the parties together in the U.S. for such an important milestone.

Initially, the process of obtaining fiancée visa was designed to be completed within 3 months. As technological advancements increased, and people started to meet online, the government started to see cases in which criminals were meeting innocent people and proposing marriages to them. Many lost their lives as a result of settling down with dangerous killers. It became necessary for the government to tighten the loopholes, and put more checks in place to reduce the danger. Instead of the 3 months, it is now taking about a year to complete the fiancée visa process, and majority of such applications are denied.

This complicated case about fiancée visa was brought to Attorney Famuyide with multiple children from two sources. The story was interwoven and the facts were difficult to line up, but at the end, Attorney Famuyide intervened to answer all the questions asked by the U.S. Embassy Abroad, and the case was approved.


As part of the new innovations directed at improving the necessary security checks, the U.S. Department of State has introduced the need to create electronic file through the DS 261 online form before an applicant for fiancée visa can be scheduled for interview at the U.S. Embassy abroad.


All applicants with approved fiancée visa application who are waiting for interview abroad should note this. You will not be scheduled for interview until the electronic file is created. The Law Office of Joseph Famuyide is now assisting prospective immigrants in creating the electronic file and securing interview appointment at the U.S. Embassy abroad.


The fiancée visa application process is a process by which a U.S. citizen could apply for visa for his wife-to-be to migrate to the United States quickly rather than get married abroad. It is a process commenced in the United States through the filing of Form I-129F. The process was originally created to foster quick coming together of potential husband and wife, but with the advent of online dating and internet spouses, the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services some years ago introduced some checks and balances in the process to prevent abuse. As a result of the changes, the fiancée visa is no longer a quick way to get potential spouses to the United States.


To be eligible for fiancée visa, the couple-to-be must meet certain requirements. Pursuant to the U.S. immigration law, they must have met in person within two years prior to filing the application, unless their culture prohibits meeting prior to marriage or if the requirement to meet with cause extreme hardship to the petitioner. Also they are required to get married within 90 days of the fiancée arrival in the United States.


It must be noted that fiancée visa carries dire consequence for the immigrant if the marriage did not take place within 90days upon entry to the United States. According to the law, the immigrant is not allowed to obtain permanent resident status through another means except through the petition filed by the petitioner.


Many holders of fiancée visas are stranded in the United States today either because the petitioner in their cases did not marry them or did not apply for adjustment of status for them after the marriage. It is advisable that all immigrants elevate their relationship to marriage and obtain immigrant visas and green cards rather than the fiancée visas.


To compound the process, the Department of State has now introduced creation of electronic file to the fiancée visa process. If you must use the fiancée visa, it is important to note that you will need to create the electronic file before you will be called for interview.
