FAMILY PETITIONS

The Law Offices of Mary Teruya provides a full range of services to help individuals and families overcome obstacles to obtaining family visas and green cards. We have extensive experience in reuniting families and married couples.

K-3 Marriage Green Cards

K3 visas are appropriate for spouses of US citizens residing outside of the US. Congress created the K3 visa to reduce the long wait that the US citizen and her spouse experienced, while waiting for an immigrant visa. The K3 visa allows one to enter the US in nonimmigrant status to eventually adjust status to lawful permanent residency while in the United States. USCIS will grant the applicant with a two-year admission period when the K3 visa holder enters the United States.

K-1 Fiancée Visas

The K1 visa is the most effective method for bringing an alien fiancée to the United States. A U.S. citizen may bring their fiancée to the United States by filing a petition with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The alien fiancée is allowed to stay in the United States for ninety days. Subsequent to the ninety-day period, the U.S. citizen and alien fiancée must marry and file for lawful permanent residency (green card).
