How Much Does It Actually Cost to Get a K-1 Visa from Thailand?

Transcript of the above video:

As the title of this video suggests, we are discussing the K-1 Fiancée Visa and a question I get from a lot of folks is "What does it actually cost?"  "What is the all-in cost?" Well the short answer to that question and I don't mean to sound vague is, it depends.  It really, really does depend on your specific circumstances. 

Now there is a skeletal framework you can look at with respect to the set government cost; you can get a pretty good idea with respect to the medical fees etc. That being said, the specific facts of a given case are going to dictate the cost of getting the case processed through successfully and when I say the specific facts, for example if there are legal grounds of inadmissibility which exist in the given case, things like prior convictions for various crimes, even things that aren't convictions or even crimes in the United States or in certain jurisdictions in the United States for instance, things like marijuana which is currently sort of in the process of being decriminalized at least on the State level in the US, these types of things in an Immigration context can have a tremendous impact on how long it is going to take to process the case. It is also going to have a tremendous impact on the cost of processing because again a criminal record or record of some sort of ground of inadmissibility will warrant possibly an I-212 or an I-601 waiver, these types of things, and that has to be taken into consideration when adding up the cost. 

The thing to take away from this video, I strongly urge you to contact us if you are really interested in understanding all the costs associated with a K-1 visa; from Thailand or from anywhere else here in Southeast Asia. If you get me on the phone I am happy to provide insight into exactly how the interplay of the various facts in your case is going to result in the overall fee quotation. In most cases we do have routine fees that will apply in a large number of cases. However, I can't say for certain that it would even apply in the majority of cases because every case is different and they have to be quoted based on the specific facts of the given case. I am happy to provide information to those who are looking at the process and looking at how much it is going to cost. It is a time-consuming process. It is multi-phase.  There are various costs that come up at various parts of the process. Understanding that at the outset and being able to go ahead and predict what your ongoing costs are going to be in order to get that visa successfully processed is something good to understand and it is probably going to provide a benefit to you so it probably not a terrible idea to contact a legal professional in order to get some insight into how the overall process is going to proceed and how much it is going to cost.
