Duration of Stay
You must marry the U.S. citizen within 90 days of entering the U.S. Once the marriage has taken place in the U.S., you must apply to adjust your status
to permanent resident.
Note: If you have been married less than 2 years when your adjustment of status is granted, You would initially receive a two-year conditional residence and would have to file additional paperwork later for removal of conditions on your residence.
Your unmarried, minor children derive K-2
nonimmigrant visa status from you as long as the children are named in the K1 US fiance visa petition. A separate petition is not required if the children accompany or follow you within one year from the date of issuance of the K1 visa. Thereafter, a separate immigrant visa petition is required. They may also be eligible to take up employment
during their stay in the U.S. They may seek permanent residence based on your marriage to a U.S. citizen.
