What supporting documents do I need for a fiance visa/K1 visa?

Asked over 1 year ago - Copperas Cove, TX

What supporting documents do I need for a fiance visa/K1 visa? I have been dating my boyfriend for two years now. We recently got engaged and I would like to get him to the US so that we can get married. He lives in Jamaica. My family are all here in the states. I am also a US citizen. About how long does it take to process?

    2. consult with an experienced immigration lawyer

    The process takes 6-12 months.
