2 separate applications?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Citizen (apr) Country: Moldova

What does everyone think about this:

1. Mom and daughter entered USA together as K-1 and K-2

2. Both filed for AOS (2 applications/1 envelope)...Mom approved 1/23/06 and daughter approved 1/18/06

3. Filed one application for I-751 ROC and USCIS sent it back saying they had to file separately since daughter "entered" before mother.

Why was mother's CPR card issued after the daughter's?

Why should they have to file separately and pay two fees for the I-751 just because USCIS approved the K-2 before the K-1?

Thanks to all for the guidance and support and speedy processing to all!

Only 1 application (Mother K-1) and include an additional $80 for child listed in part 5.

Conditional Resident Children.

In Part 5 of the form, please make sure to include any conditional resident children applying with you in order to have their conditional basis removed, or they may file separately. Please remember to provide their A-number.


You are filing for both together not separately so only one I-751 is needed.

I would include the instructions and highlight the section about conditional resident children.

If you have to, schedule an info pass and talk to someone about it.

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Canada

In order for a K-1 and K-2 to file the removal of conditions together, they both must have received their Permanent Resident Status within 3 months of each other. If it's more than 3 months, they both have to file separately.

We had to file my daughter's I-751 separately because she received her PR status in Feb. 06 and I received my PR status in Dec. 04.

I just checked the instructions for the I-751 and I couldn't find where it said that, so maybe they have changed it, but I know I wasn't able to file my daughter's with mine at the time I filed my own I-751.

An InfoPass appointment will probably give you the information you need.

Good luck.
