Extending the Petition

Hey guys,

I was wondering if someone could point me to a thread that would detail how to get the I-129F Petition extended. Our approval notice will expire on March 1, 2008, and the interview is not scheduled until May 12, 2008. I was reading to send and email and I sent one to the Embassy last night. However, they responded with this:

Thank you for your email dated February 3, 2008.

Extending the Petition

The I-129F petition is valid for four months from the date of approval from USCIS. Consular officers can extend the validity of the petition (revalidate the petition) if it expires before the processing of the visa application is completed.

Details on all types of visas, visa forms, requirements and fees can be accessed via the U.S. Department of State website, visas section at http://travel.state.gov/visa.

Sorry if I am not getting it right away....I am probably just getting a little weary at this moment in the process.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Thanks,

Erika

From what I understand, they usually extend it automatically. If you sent an email asking them to extend it, then I think you're covered. They won't extend it until it's at the expiration date, Ghana probably doesn't understand people doing things ahead of time. :o

Hi Erika.

That is the same response I got when I sent in a reequest to extend my petition and I sent my e-mail 2 weeks before it was supposed to expire. Ghana knows that they have stupidly long wait times so I would think that they would automatically extend the petition. I just sent the e-mail so that they knew that I was on top of things....and to make myself feel better.

You should be good :)

Thanks Zain and Zee,

I thought I was being ignored in the email. I just do not want us to finally get to the interview point and get denied because of something I forgot to do. I will send another one right before our interview just to make sure. :blush:

Thanks again,

Erika

Virtually all slower consulates are aware of the 4 month validity of K-1 NOA2 letter and extend them automatically.

China for example NEVER interviews with the 4 months of NOA2 and extends them all.

You don't have to extend the petition. My husbands interview was in July and the petition was approved in January. I never had it extended, I heard the embassy automatically does that for you. After all it is the embassy's fault why it has been over 4 months, as they schedule the interviews so far out, right? ;)

scroll down to where it says extending the I-129-F petition, if needed.


Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.
