Hello All. DarkKiss back of Line. I missed you FAM!!! I need help. I'm attempting to assist a friend who as met a wonderful gentlemen in the DR and they want to do the K1. Doing the K1 process solo is no problem, but he has 3 young kids that he wants included in his documents. He has custody of them and want to bring them to the US. Someone please steer me in the right direction. Is this even possible? I know he needs to put their information on the I129F, but I guess I'm asking, is by putting their names on the form, does this also mean that he is petitioning for them?

I've been offline for a while and I am very rusty! All information needed!

Moderators, please move to appropriate forum.

Thanks guys

Yes, the petitioner needs to list all the beneficiary's children on the I129F. That's all that is necessary to do at that stage. Then, at the embassy stage, the beneficiary will fill out separate visa applications (ds160) for each of the children that wishes to immigrate, they will all need to undergo medical examinations and attend the interview together. At the interview, he will have to prove that he is their biological father (birth certificate), that he has sole custody and is not in violation with any local (DR) rules for taking children out of the country.

An keep in mind, his costs related to the k1 will be multiplied by the number of children, medical exams, passport, birth certificates, adjustment of status later on....

SHish! I can see that we are in for an uphill battle! Thanks for that reminder :huh2:

Something doesn't quite add up here. How did a man in a Latin country end up with 3 small kids in his custody? Are they his kids? I know the paperwork from DR is heavily scrutinized as there see to be many fake birth certificates, etc. I don't now if DR ever does, but they may require DNA testing to prove that they're his before issuing a visa for the kids.
