Proxy Marriage for Non US Citizens
S&B Professional Services, Inc. arranges legal marriages between U.S. citizens and foreign nationals.
According to U.S. Immigration Law a proxy marriage is considered valid if the marriage took place in a state where proxy marriages are legal and subsequently consummated.
An unconsummated proxy marriage is not considered valid according to Immigration Law, but the party who is the U.S. citizen may submit the U.S. marriage certificate in application for the K-1 Fiancée Visa. This would show “serious intent” and can possibly reduce the waiting time. There is a requirement that before you can apply for a K-1 Fiancée Visa that you have met your fiancée at least one time in the past two years.
After the proxy marriage is consummated you can then apply for a K-3 Spousal Visa which has a much higher priority than the K-1 Fiancée Visa and can greatly reduce the waiting time.
We are not immigration attorneys and cannot give legal advice. Before you proceed with any immigration matter you should first consult with an immigration attorney.

Legal Proxy Marriage for Foreign Citizens
We can also arrange a legal U.S. civil marriage by proxy when one person resides in one country and the fiancée resides in a different country.
If one of the parties is able to travel to the state of Kansas for a minimum of 4 days, you can choose our legal single proxy marriage in Kansas.
If you are a non-U.S. resident and will need to submit the U.S. Marriage Certificate to any foreign government office you will need to order an Apostille Certificate. This is a certificate from the Secretary of State of Montana which certifies that the Montana Marriage Certificate is valid and authentic. It will take approximately 10 days to receive this additional certificate.
For more information about the Apostille Certificate, please contact us today!
