Pursuing I-129f instead of I-130

Sorry to ask, because this question has come up so many times before. We're waiting for a K3 interview in Montreal, and just received the Affidavit of Support Bill for I-130. How do I let them know we'll Adjust Status once he gets here on K3?

From what I understand, you don't need to take any direct action with NVC for the I-130 if you choose to pursue the K-3. Just like the post stated prior to mine, once you begin the AOS process, it will override the pending I-130 at NVC. Do you have your interview date yet?

Jersye Girl,

Normally the 1st thing one gets from the NVC when their I-130 petition is approved is a DS-3032 Choice of Agent and Address form. That's the appropriate time to tell the NVC which way you're going to go.

Thanks Yodrak,

Yes, the Choice of Agent form was included with the Affidavit of Support bill. If this is the appropriate time to let NVC know we'll carry on with K3 and adjust status later, how do I do this? Write? Call? Email?

Tracy,

I suppose some people do nothing, since there's a one-year grace period to pay the $70 Affidavit of Support Bill. I guess they simply pick up where they left off when they Adjust Status.

By the way, no inteview date yet and it looks grim from what I gather from other Montreal people. Travelling there in winter can be trecherous. Sigh... how many grey hairs have you gotten this year?

You can delay the NVC process of I-130 by not sending anything right now. When you get your K-3 interview date and get the visa, you can simply email NVC that you won't pursue the CR-1.

Gray hairs? I lost count! And I already paid the AOS bill for the CR-1 essentially having given up hope for my K-3. But now that I have hope again, I'm so relieved I haven't paid the $380 IV bill fee yet :yes:

I'm going broke AND gray during this whole immigration process. Hope my husband still wants me when all is said and done.... :lol:

Jersey Girl,

Write the information on the DS-3032.

In line with what simple_male posted, you may either want to go slow responding to the NVC or respond quickly going forward with the immigrant visa since you don't have an interview date for the K3 visa application. You may not want to close off your options quite yet.

Tough call to make - whatever decision you make, make it and don't look back.

hafiz,

There's nothing worse than self-recrimination. It's a lot worse me.

A word of caution -- don't close off your options yet -- the way NVC was processing my I-130, I thought it would beat the K3, but then it all came to a griding halt. My wife just cleared her K3 interview this week.

Good luck,

KP

kpathak...my I-130 did exactly the same thing! I was hoping to be able to proceed with the immigration visa rather steadily once it got to NVC, but now I'm even more thankful that my K-3 option is still open and progressing because it's been 3 weeks since I've heard any more news about the I-130....

GO K-3!
