The K1 Fiance visa process from beginning to end in 2019 should take about 9 or 10 months assuming that there are no errors in your paperwork and USCIS does not need additional evidence.
If there are errors in your paperwork, USCIS needs additional evidence, or there are other problems then the process can drag on for additional months or additional years. (I have seen this happen. A very intelligent potential client had been trying, unsuccessfully to bring his fiance to the United States for 3 years before meeting with me at my office. He just kept running into problems which caused his case to be delayed.) Therefore, it is very important that you submit all the paperwork required for your petition correctly.
Unlike other visa categories e.g. H1b, you cannot pay extra fees in order to receive faster (premium) processing of your case. The time period listed above can change depending on a variety of factors. A couple of years ago the total wait time was between 6 and 9 months.

Our experience was amazing. The process was smooth. Larry and Jason helped us every step of the way to get my husband’s temporary visa. When I started getting anxiety about how long it takes, what’s the next step or what if’s, I would call either of them and they had no problems giving me answers. Jason went with us to our meeting with immigration, and made us laugh the whole time. He really helped keep me calm as I suffer from anxiety very badly. A year later, I can still call Larry and ask questions about the next step. I’m very thankful I found these guys!!! Highly recommend them!
I met the love of my life in China. When I was looking for an Immigration attorney to help me get the K1 Visa for my fiance, I was so glad that I found the Law Office Of Lawrence Gruner. Attorney’s Lawrence Gruner and Jason Marachi gave us excellent representation throughout the whole process and got us through the process very quickly and smoothly. It only took six month’s for my fiance to get her K1 Visa and move to the U.S. with me so we could get married and start our lives together. And in another six month’s later, my wife now has her Green Card. I highly recommend this Law Office for your Immigration Law needs.
Thank you Mr. Gruner and Mr. Marachi!!
