“Katib Al Kitab” and Its Legal Implications
Please note that the nonimmigrant fiancé(e) (K-1) visa is created to enable you to travel to the United States in order to marry your U.S. citizen fiancé(e) in the United States within 90 days from your arrival date to the United States. Both the U.S. citizen and the K-1 visa applicant must have been legally free to marry at the time the petition was filed and must have remained so thereafter (during the visa interview). By signing a marriage contract (Katib Al Kitab), you are considered to be legally and officially married under both Jordanian and U.S. law, regardless of consummation of marriage or the holding of a wedding party.
If you and your U.S. citizen petitioner have signed the Katib Al Kitab, or intend to sign before travel to the U.S., you are not eligible for a K-1 visa.
If you have signed the Katib Al Kitab, your spouse must file for a family-based immigrant visa (CR1, form I-130).
