The Board of Immigration Appeals recently determined that a K-4 visa applicant cannot adjust status based upon her marriage to a U.S. citizen. The BIA ruled that the applicant could not adjust status because she had entered the United States on the K-4 visa. Due to the restrictions on the K-4 visa holder, she could not adjust status except through the K-4 relationship.
The K-4 visa is available to the sons and daughters of spouses who enter the United States on the K-3 visa. To learn what immigration options might be available to K-4 visa holders, please contact this New York immigration lawyer.
