What is a K-1 visa?

When a U.S. citizen who lives in Florida wishes to marry a non-citizen foreign national, he or she is able to bring their fiance to Florida in order to get married. One way, other than a tourist visa, in which a foreign fiance can legally enter the country in order to marry is a K-1 visa, which is a type of non-immigrant visa specifically geared towards foreign fiances.

Man receives humanitarian visa after mother's death

Miami residents might be interested to learn about a man who was recently approved for a humanitarian visa.

How does immigrant law relate to children?

Federal and state laws address how Florida handles immigration matters for individuals in a wide range of situations. In some cases, a child might need to be placed in long-term foster care because the parents are not U.S. citizens. Other children might qualify for special immigration status as juveniles for several reasons. For example, a child may be placed in the court's custody, or there may be allegations of abuse. It may also be determined that remaining in the U.S. is in the child's best interest or that the child is eligible for long-term foster care.

What are the requirements for a temporary work visa?

Foreigners wishing to come to Florida to work for a short period of time may be interested to learn how to qualify for a temporary non-immigrant worker visa.

However, there are some temporary worker classifications that do not require the visa applicant to have a job set up ahead of time.
