10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancé has 3 kids. I finding it difficult to locate the section that just deals with the kids like, what is the fee for each child? Is it the same for my fiancé? Also, do I have to fill out an I-129F and Affidavit of support for each child?

thank you in advance!

How the K1/k2 works is that you file 1 petition, making sure to name the children. They are derivatives of that petition. Then each person needs a visa fee, and medical, and must attend the interview. When they all arrive and after the wedding, everyone has to adjust their status. If the child is under the age of 14 and they aos with a parent at the same time, their aos is only 635 per child vs the full amount (minus biometrics.) Children over 14 pay the full amount no matter what.

Me and my fiancé are trying to work out the bottom line. We know what we have to pay to start the process but, we are trying to work out the total cost when she gets her interview.

I know it is $240 for the visa but is it the same cost per child? (3)

also, does anyone have a ball park of what the medical exam costs per?

I guess I am trying to figure out the bottom line for 4 people the day of the interview (1 adult and 3 minors).

Please forgive me if I am asking stupid questions. I am trying to weed through a bunch of information.

thank you in advance

After arrival on the K-1 and marriage within 90 days of arrival, you'll need to file the I-485 application to adjust status. Fee is $985 + $85 biometric fee = $1,070.

My fiancé has 3 kids. Will this fee be x4 then? $4,280?

Depends on their ages.

K2 visa applications cost the same as K1 visa applications. $265 per person. Medical exam costs vary by country so you may want to check out your regional forum on that one.
