If your fiancé is not a U.S. citizen but is only a lawful permanent resident he or she should consult with us to see if he qualifies to become a U.S. citizen. (To learn more, see: 10 Reasons To Become a Naturalized United States Citizen.) When he becomes a U.S. citizen, then he should be able to file a K-1 fiancé visa petition for you. Currently the overall wait time for fiance visas is about 9 to 10 months. The overall denial rate (for all fiance visas filed in the United States) in the beginning of 2019 is 50%. The denial rate was less than 10% a couple of years ago.
The unmarried children, under the age of 21, whether or not they are the biological children of the United States citizen, may be eligible to accompany you into the United States and apply for their own green cards.
If you are in the fiancé visa process, your case will be terminated should you marry your US citizen fiancé before you enter the United States. In this case you would have to do a marriage visa (I-130 case).

What is the Current Approval Rate for Fiance Visa Cases overall and what is your approval rate?
In 2018 and 2019 the overall approval rate hovered between 50 and 60 percent. These numbers were for all of the fiance visa cases which were filed in the United States during that period. Many of these cases were filed by individuals or individuals with the help of paralegals, immigration consultants and notarios.
Our approval rate for 2018 and 2019 was (is) 100%. As they say in the world of finance, this is not a guarantee of future results and it is not a guarantee that we can obtain a fiance visa for you. However, given the current immigration climate, we have obtained very good results for our clients.

Option #1: You can pick up the forms from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and try to tackle the mountain of confusing paperwork yourself. If you’re taking this route, good luck!
Option #2: If you’re a book mole, read all the best textbooks on the subject (may take months to go through the best ones), and leap into the application process with the faith that everything will be all right. The only problem here is that textbooks provide generic advice that can be outdated simply because the immigration laws change as often as the wind blows.
Option #3: Let our fiance visa attorney walk you through the maze of U.S. immigration law and tell you, in plain English, what’s relevant and important in your case. Most importantly, we’ll help you identify any potential issues and weaknesses in your case and figure out how together we can overcome them.
“We first used Lawrence Gruner and Jason Marachi for my then fiance’s K1 visa. They were always readily available to answer any questions and were very knowledgeable about the current immigration laws and processes. We really loved both Lawrence and Jason because they stayed on top and followed our case as it went through USCIS. They gave personal attention to our case, which definitely put us at ease, especially since we are not locals of Sacramento. They always had great communication, whether it be by phone or email. We thought they did such an outstanding job with the K1 Visa that we returned back to them when we applied for an Adjustment of Status (Green Card) for my now husband. In the future, we will definitely give our business back to Lawrence and Jason. They are among the elite in their field.” S. Lazaro, California
Mr Gruner and his associates are true life savers! They are knowledgable, reliable, friendly and thorough. Any question, comment or concern will recieve a timely response. With the hustle and bustle of daily life, there wasn’t any time for me to attempt to complete any immigration application forms for my then fiance, who is from the Dominican Republic and #TEAMGRUNER saved the day! Their prompt service and continuous availabilty made my husband’s approval process a breeze, only 5 months. Because of their quick pace and dedication, my husband and I were alloted the duration to focus on bigger and better adventures aka OUR WEDDING DAY.
Update: Due to my happy ending, I referred a friend and their approval notice was processed and mailed after a short 3 month timeframe!#TEAMGRUNER IS THE BEST IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY—-O. Guzman, Oakland, CA
