Q: My fiancee lives in Honduras. What do I have to do to get her and her daughter to America?
A: If you are a U.S. citizen you can file the FORM I-129F on behalf of your fiancée and her daughter. You can read the instructions to that form or visit with an experienced immigration attorney for guidance and assistance.
A: You can petition for them with a fiance visa. That visa, when approved, gives the intended spouse three months to marry you when the spouse comes to the USA.
A: If you have physically met your fiancé within two years of filing your case, you can sponsor her and her daughter for green cards and they can process at the US consulate overseas. The process takes roughly about a year or a little bit less before she can enter the country with her K visa along with her child, and then you can adjust status to get them their green cards after you marry her within a 90 day period of her entry.
