    Answered . You can use a K-1 Visa. This is a fiance visa and is the fastest way to get him here. You would have to get married within 90 days of his arrival.

    Or, you could marry him in India, and file a petition for him as your husband. Though this takes a bit longer he will enter the United States as a Resident.

    Good Luck.

    Answered . Hello,

    Thank you for posting your question.

    As the other attorneys have stated, given that you are a U.S. citizen, you want to marry him in the U.S. and he is in India, the Fiance Visa route would be the best option. This is a two stage process - first, you have to file Form I-129F with USCIS; second, if the I-129F is approved, your fiance will need to apply for his K-1 visa at a U.S. Consulate in India.

    An overview of this process can be found on my website at: http://www.familytousa.com/fiance-petition-k-1-...

    However, before you file any paperwork, I would recommend you speak to an experienced immigration attorney to ensure that your fiance does not have any past issues that would cause problems with the issuance of a K-1 visa. The attorney could also address any questions you have regarding timing, processing times and address any questions/concerns you may have.

    Good luck!

    Thank you,
