It is important to know that one of the requirements to obtain this status is that you must intend to marry within 90 days after your fiancé(e) is admitted to the United States. In addition, your marriage must be valid and with the genuine intent to establish a life together and not for the sole purpose of obtaining an immigration benefit.
