Nonimmigrant Visa Spouse K-3
One of the downsides of entering the United States as an immigrant is loneliness. A married person may enter the US as a Lawful Permanent Resident but meanwhile, they are really missing their wife and children. The Nonimmigrant Visa for a Spouse K-3 was created to help shorten the physical separation between foreign citizens and their US citizen spouses while they inch towards a Green Card.
‘Having a wonderful time. Wish you were here.’
The easy way to get a Nonimmigrant Visa for a Spouse K-3
Angela Njogu had never dreamed that she would marry a wonderful American man without even setting foot in the United States.
It’s another matter that the American husband in question was Jerry Njogu, her friend from childhood. They had gone to school together in Nairobi, and then dated while studying medicine together in college.
But then life had taken him one way and her another. He got an internship at University of Maryland School of Medicine and one day disappeared from her life.
Angela was heart-broken but so was he. She knew that Kenyans who went to the US seldom came back to settle again in Kenya. Sure enough, one of his vacations to visit his family and friends in Kenya, Jerry told her that he saw his future in the USA.
“Will you marry me, Angie?” he asked her. “I want us to live together in the US.”
With her aging parents requiring constant care, she wasn’t sure she could just marry him and go away. But in the year that followed, both of them passed away from natural causes. The next time that Jerry visited Kenya, it was for a very special occasion: the grand wedding of Jerry with Angela. The childhood sweethearts were now man and wife.
Except that they still could not live together.
Jerry, now a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) of the US, was utterly lonely. He would send her yearning email postcards: Having a wonderful time. Wish you were here. He needed his Angela.
That was when the Nonimmigrant Visa for a Spouse K-3 came to their rescue.
The immigration authorities understand the pain of separation when a family is torn asunder because of bureaucracy and paperwork. The K-3 nonimmigrant visa was created especially to help shorten the physical separation between foreign citizens and their US citizen spouses while they inch towards a Green Card. Although Angela and Jerry were both Kenyan by birth and friends since childhood, many men and women fall in love when in a foreign country and end up in the same situation — a US Citizen with a foreign spouse who cannot join them because he or she has a different nationality.
Jerry started the process of bringing Angela back into his life by filing Form I-130, a Petition for an Alien Relative. Since applications of immediate family members such as a spouse or children are processed very fast, Angela soon received her Nonimmigrant Visa for a Spouse K-3. By Christmas she was with her beloved in the land of opportunity.
It was understood that Angela would apply for a change of visa status to become a Lawful Permanent Resident as well after spending a mandated period in the USA. The Njogu family, united and happy, are now looking forward to a lifetime in the USA.
