Need Some Help with K-1 / K-2 VISA Adjustments

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Greetings. New person here with some questions.

I am married to a wonderful Russian lady, and have her 6 year old daughter here. We did the I-129f form and all that some time ago, and they arrived here and we were married within the 90 days. No problem there.

Now, we are in the midst of trying to adjust their status, and keep running into beurocratic nonsense.

We filled out all the forms needed and sent them in. Last week, we got our notice for the Biometric meeting to take fingerprints, etc.

Today, we get a pink letter from them, regarding her daughter (here on a K-2) asking for "Initial Evidence (I-485)", specifically this:

"In order to process your application further, submit evidence that an immigrant visa petition has been filed on your behalf. Such evidence includes a copy of the I-797 Notice of Action on Form I-129F (Petition for Alien Fiance'), Form I-130 (Petition for Alien Relative), or Form I-360 (Petition for Amerasian, Widow(er), or Special Immigrant), and/or a copy of Form I-171 (Notice of Approval from the Consular Office). If you are not filing as the beneficiary of an immigrant visa petition, submit documentation in support of your eligibility to become a Lawful Permanent Resident of the United States."

....now... The only "I-797" I got when I filed the I-129F is the one I got for my wife, saying the petition was approved. There wasn't a separate one for the child. Is *this* the I-797 they are referring to? Because, it certainly is not clear at all.

My thanks ahead of time. :blush:

Correct me if i'm wrong everyone but don't you have to file for a child along with the Fiancee visa.... i thought you had to submit a I-130 for a child along with the I-129F petition for your fiancee (now wife). Did you do this?

Wrong..... fiancee visa requires no I-130......

Yes, your daughter is adjusting based on status derived as a result of the approved I-129f for fiancee visa (K-1).


YMMV

To be clear, the only I-797 they could possibly be referring to, for a K-2, is the one for the I-129F you filed for your (then) fiancee.

Excellent. Thanks. I'm just curious why they want this, since there is no mention of the daughter on this thing. *shrug* It just has the wife's name and that it was approved.

Weird.

Thanks for the info folks!
