Hello every body

I want to file I-130 to apply for K-3 visa for my wife. I have two questios about that:

#1.When I file I-130 and I am waiting for the process of K-3, can I apply for a visitor visa for my wife so that she can join me at least a few months?

#2.Can I leave the US after I-130 filing and do the paperwork from outside or by the aid of my friends in the US?

Thanks

Yes for the first question

You could, but it is a little bit harder, i tried it myself and it was harding sending document to my family and them sending to USCIS. You can't directly send it to them from different country because they need a US address.

Anyone can apply for a visitors visa. My wife and I applied together, and were denied. Rarely, they are approved and it only costs $135 or so to try.

Our case:

She owned home and mortgage, still was working in Jakarta

We had not filed any petitions (130 or 129F) before we applied for visitors visa

The consul told us they are instructed specifically in spousal cases that being married to USC pre-empts any other ties to their home countries, and it didnt matter that she still had a mortgage and job, being married made her ties to US too strong. That was us, and if I were to go back I would still have tried.

That is OUR embassy, they are all different and I encourage you to try. Being denied visitors visa does not effect your case especially if you are honest about what you want.

Hope that helps,

David and Nitadyah

Hi,

Thank you for your answers. David and and Nitadyah, if your hope about the entry date is true, you will enter 7 months after filing I-130 which I think is a good record, isn't it?
