A U.S. citizen or LPR may petition for his or her children (under 21 years), spouse and parents. Once the I-130 Immediate Relative petition is approved, the relative may adjust status to become a legal permanent resident. A spouse or child who is subjected to extreme cruelty or battery may self-petition.
K-1 Visas are for the finace(e)s of U.S. Citizens. The fiancée must seek to enter the U.S. solely to conclude a valid marriage with the petitioner. The couple must marry within 90 days after the fiancee's entry. Any minor children of the fiancée may accompany the fiancée to the U.S. with K-2 visas.
K-3 Visas are for persons who have valid marriages to U.S. citizens, where the U.S. citizen has filed an I-130 petition on the person's behalf and the person wishes to enter the U.S. to await the approval. If the I-130 is denied, the authorized admission under K-3 terminates 30 days after the denial. The K-3 visa includes minor children of the beneficiary.
Spouses and children of U.S. citizens and permanent residents can file immigrant visa petitions for themselves if they can show that their spouse or parent “battered” them or subject them to “extremely cruelty,” that they are of good moral character, and that they would suffer extreme hardship if they were forced to leave the United States. The abuse may be physical, verbal or psychological.
