What is the timing of the K1 visa? 3 Answers as of February 08, 2011

My boyfriend and I (of 2 years) are planning to get married. I am a citizen and I am a college student. I do not have a job but I do receive annuity checks (monthly and yearly) can that be used as a form of support for him? We both want to wait until he is up here to get married and pick out a home together as a newlywed couple. I want to know how long will it take to get him from Jamaica to Florida. I want to time it so that he will be up here just in time for my college graduation, and we can go from there to getting a home and married.

No way to predict a time frame for the issuance of a K-1 visa. If your annuity checks amount to 125% of the federal U.S. poverty level for a family your size, that should be sufficient.

Always hard to predict exactly but likely to be 7-12 months to get here on a K-1 fianc visa. If your income is not in excess of about $19,000 you will likely need a co-sponsor. Feel free to call me to get the process started, advise on the procedures, fees, and timing.
