First, let’s determine your eligibility to file Form I-129F.

The Petitioner is the U.S. citizen who files Form I-129F. The Beneficiary is the foreign national (spouse or fiancé) who is being petitioned by the U.S. citizen. If you are a U.S. citizen, you may use Form I-129F to petition:
  • Your foreign national fiancé as a K-1 nonimmigrant so that he or she may enter the United States to marry you and pursue adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident; or
  • Your foreign national spouse as a K-3 nonimmigrant so that he or she may enter the United States to await the availability of an immigrant visa and pursue adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident.

To file the I-129F petition, you must be a U.S. citizen.

  • Be Advised: CitizenPath cannot provide any assurances that this petition will be approved before Form I-130. If USCIS approves your Form I-130 before or at the same time as your Form I-129F, your spouse and his or her children will no longer need a K-3 or K-4 visa. You may proceed, but we want you to be aware that immigrant visas typically get issued before the K-3 can be approved.
