How long does it take to get a fiance visa if my fiance is in the UK?

Chicago, IL |

How long does it take to get a fiance visa if my fiance is in the UK? She is a swedish citizen residing in the UK. I heard that visa application times vary depending on the country. I am looking for an attorney to handle the k1 and then the change of status after marriage. I am looking for more of an answer than find a local immigration attorney.

I agree with my colleagues. Once you apply you should check processing times by going to If you find that your case is outside processing times it may be necessary to do an involved appointment at the Chicago USCIS office. In general, it takes around 6 months if there are no issues in the case.

About a year, although some people will promise you to get your fiance here in 30 days, it's not possible.
