Hi everyone! My name is Jean Vigonte (from Butuan City, Phils.) and my Fiancee's name is Kenneth Duncan (from Minneapolis, MN). I am very new in this site but reading a few of the conversation threads in here (esp. related with the K1/Fiancee Visa), gives me so much hope that the questions in both our minds will be somehow answered or that you will be generous enough to share your insights.

Kenneth is currently living in Minneapolis and has been really trying to get me over there. However, he wants to make sure that he will be doing all the right moves so there won't be any complications when he begins the necessary procedures. Unfortunately, we both don't really have a clue as to what would be the best thing to do first. All we both can think of right now is for him to look for a good lawyer that specializes in Fiancee Visas there in Minneapolis. He was actually able to call one law office but he was informed that the whole process might take a year at least and that they charge about US$3,000. We both were really taken aback by the amount.

Thank God because I was able to find this site and maybe in answer to our prayers, any one of you might be able to help us refer a very good lawyer in Minneapolis that Ken can get in contact with.

Hope to hear your suggestions and advices soon... Thank you very much in advance!

God bless everyone and may this year 2008 be a fruitful and prosperous one for all of us.

Unless there is something very unusual about your situation he should not need a lawyer. The process is relatively simple. Send him the following links to read:

http://manila.usemba...v/wwwh3204.html (Note that some of the fees just changed and are not reflected properly here)

http://travel.state....types_1315.html (fiance/spousal visa types)
http://travel.state....types_2994.html (specific page for K-1 fiance visa)

http://www.uscis.gov...00045f3d6a1RCRD (How Do I Become a K-Nonimmigrant as the Spouse or Child of a U.S. Citizen? (K-3 and K-4 Visa Classifications))

And, of course, any questions ask them here.

Jeanken,

Please tell your fiancee that he can email me directly at: raybacon1@gmail.com and he and I can arrange to speak by phone. I can walk him through the requirements for the fiancee visa process and explain all his options.

The submtital fee is $455 and it will take about 8-10 months.
