Can I file multiple K-1 Fiancé petitions?
A K-1 fiancé petition allows a foreign national to enter the United States to marry a U.S. citizen within 90-days. However, if the couple decides not to get married, the foreign national must return to his/her country. Issues may arise when the K-1 petition has filed multiple K-1 visas or when the foreign national has entered the U.S. on a prior K-1 visa.
Filing a second K-1 petition within a 2-year period: Antoine filed a fiancée petition for Aracely. Aracely has cold feet and returns to her country. A year later, Antoine meets Barbara. If Antoine wants to file a new fiancée petition for Barbara, he will need to request a waiver if it has been less than two years since he filed the fiancée petition for Aracely.
Filing multiple K-1 petitions ever: Antoine filed a fiancée petition for Aracely. Aracely has cold feet and returns to her country. A few years later, Antoine files a fiancée petition for Barbara. Barbara has cold feet and returns to her country. If Antoine wants to file a new fiancée petition in the future, he will need to request a waiver, since he has filed two or more fiancée petitions in the past.
Filing multiple and concurrent K-1 petitions: Antoine is dating multiple women and cannot decide who he would like to marry. Antoine cannot file a fiancée petition for more than one person at a time.
