90 Day Fiancé Wiki

Template:Short description Template:Multiple issues Template:Infobox television 90 Day Fiancé is an American documentary/reality TV series on TLC that follows couples who have applied for or received a K-1 visa (available uniquely to foreign fiancés of U.S. citizens) and therefore have ninety days to marry each other. The purpose of the K-1 Visa is to allow time for the couple to make arrangements for and actually have the marriage ceremony. The visa is not to give the couple time "to decide IF" they will marry. Each couple has already signed document(s) stating that they have promised to marry each other, and provided the signed document(s) to the US Immigration services to get the K-1 Visa.

The series debuted on January 12, 2014, and has been renewed through its seventh season.[1]

The series currently has seven spin-offs: 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, which documents the ups and downs of past 90 Day Fiancé couples after their marriage; 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, which follows couples that have met each other online, but have not yet started the K-1 visa process; 90 Day Fiancé: What Now?, an original digital series that gives updates on past 90 Day Fiancé couples; 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, a dedicated series to couples where the American partner permanently moves into their partner's home country instead of the foreign partner doing so; 90 Day Fiancé: Pillow Talk, a reaction show featuring a number of previous cast members that take part in reacting to an episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After; The Family Chantel, focused on the relationship of 90 Day Fiancé season four cast members Pedro and Chantel, and their immediate family; and 90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined, which follows the lives of previous 90 Day Fiancé couples during the COVID-19 pandemic.


K-1 visa process[]

Template:Main The show is based on the K-1 visa process, which begins with the petitioner meeting the beneficiary inside or outside the United States, then filing a I-129F petition with evidence of meeting and of a relationship. After the petition is approved, the petitioner must pass biometrics and then the process is sent to the foreign embassy of the beneficiary. The beneficiary then files for a visa, before or after passing the medical requirements and is called for an interview, in which the beneficiary must prove that they meet the requirements of the visa, including having strong evidence of meeting and a valid relationship. If approved, the foreign fiancé travels to the States to live with his or her prospective American spouse. The couple must marry within 90 days, otherwise the beneficiary must leave the country. The couple may face language barriers, culture shock, the stigma of being thought of as a "mail-order bride" as well as skepticism of friends and family. Professor Lenni B. Benson of the New York Law School has stated that although the K-1 visa program is widely associated with sham marriages, "It is not true in the majority of cases." [2]
