Big K-1 Fiance Visa case from the Board


This case tries to close the door on K-1 entrants adjusting through subsequent marriages to US Citizens.

Nonetheless the case does help clarify one issue that we have run into before, namely that "A fiancé(e) visa holder may be granted adjustment of status ... even if the marriage to the fiancé(e) visa petitioner does not exist at the time that the adjustment application is adjudicated, if the applicant can demonstrate that he or she entered into a bona fide marriage within the 90-day period to the fiancé(e) visa petitioner."

This is good news for those K-1 entrants who did marry in good faith within the 90 days but whose relationships may have unfortunately failed. Matter of Sesay.
