One of the basic policies governing U.S. immigration law is family unification.
Most visas (both immigrant and non-immigrant) allow spouses and children under 21 to come along with the principal visa holder. For U.S. citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents, however, sponsoring a family member is usually a lengthy process.
Spouses, children and parents of U.S. citizens are classified as immediate family members whose admission is not subject to numerical limitations, meaning their applications can be filed without delay.
Adult children and siblings of citizens as well as immediate relatives of green card holders face longer waiting times. (See “Visa Bulletin” link)
Visas for fiancés allow foreign fiancés to come meet the family before saying “I do.” It’s important to note that some arrangements, such as entering into a marriage contract under the laws of the fiance’s home country, may unintentionally change the status of the fiancé to that of a spouse.
Although one would think that would expedite things, it actually means that the process has to begin anew.
