Not listing child on I-129f

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance in Philippines has child that will not be going with her to US, due to misguided advice we did not include the child in the initial I-129f petition.

Our petition has been approved and made its way to NVC.

We are looking for advice on what course of action to take. I know we should list the child on all DS forms for the embassy. I found that few countries embassy websites specifically point out that in case of child omission, petitioner needs to write a letter stating that he/she knows about existence of the child despite no mention of one in the initial petition. This letter should be presented if questions about child arise. We did not find similar statements on the Manilla Embassy page.

We will contact the embassy next week, but any advice or shared experience, will be appreciated. As general guidance - child is less that 16 years old.

Thank you.

Never going?.....or just not now. Either way you need to write a letter and tell them about it, honestly is always the best policy. If it were I would have explained it the way you did here and just said you were misguided and misunderstood, though the papers you filled are clear the child should be annotated.

No harm in having a letter stating as you explained in your posting ready for the CO should the question arise.

Will the child be coming to the USA eventually?

Child will not be going to US now or in the future, this was main reason for the omission.

 

How did this turn out for you?  I'm in a similar position where I omitted a child because there is no plan for him to ever come to the US.  My fiancee even turned over his legal guardian status to his grandmother because he's been living with her ever since he was a baby.  Could you please let me know what you did to resolve the problem (i.e. writing a letter for CO)?  I appreciate your help!
