A Wisconsin man has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security for denying his Chinese wife-to-be a K1 visa that would allow her to live with him in the US until marriage.

Christopher Carson’s initial request for a 90 day K1 visa was initially approved but after his fiancée underwent an interview with a consular officer in China, the petition was denied.

“This is a fiancé case, I am her fiancé. I don’t’ think the United States needs to be policing my particular choice in a future spouse,” Carson said. “Let’s keep out people who possibly terrorists, criminals.”

Carson, a criminal defense attorney, met his fiancée, an employee for the Chinese Justice Department, online.

K1 visa requirements state that a petitioner must prove to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services that the relationship with their fiancée is “bona fide.”

According to US immigration lawyers based in Thailand who regularly deal with visa denials, this is often the biggest roadblock for petitioners, especially those who–like Carson–met their fiancée through the internet and have mostly practiced a long-distance relationship.

Carson’s fiancée suffers from a tumor and he had an appointment scheduled for her at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
