USCIS has been holding I-130 petitions in favor of the I-129F and only the K-3 gets processed through NVC and the consulate.

SEE: http://www.uscis.gov/files/pressrelease/PN_i-129f.pdf

The decision to do K-3 OR CR-1 needs to be made by you BEFORE filing the I-129F


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.

Did you ever go through the NVC process? Pay the AOS & IV Bills, and send in the I-864 & DS-230? If not, then no can do.

Right, until you can say yes to all that, you don't have a chance of seeing the two petitions at Consulate together.

If that does happen, you simply inform them but make sure you get the vaccinations required for an immigrant visa.

Chances are slim and none that you'll see your I-130 at NVC anyway.

If you want an immigrant visa, don't file an I-129F for spouse.

k let me try this again,

both my approvals have made its way to nvc, it hasn't been held back at USCIS or any other center.

so i guess its one of the CSC stuff.

in general forget my case, would it be possible to point me to old discussions where folks have been able to convince the consulate to consider the I-130 at their consulate for a later date in lieu on the scheduled K3?

thanks

hello

My husband's K3 visa was on March 27, 2008 in Casablanca, Morocco

We filed the K1 one FIRST but the K3 just came to a head quicker....My lawyer emailed the NVC in regards to having 2 petitions so close to together and could they possibly INTERVIEW FOR PERMANENT instead of temporary to save time and expense...they didnt respond to it...AND when he went for his K3 interview he had a letter from the lawyer to them requesting the same favor and they disregarded it completely now...he got his K3 visa in hand :yes: exactly 2 weeks after AP ..and the same day we got his interview date for the CR1 (K1)visa...UNBELIEVABLE :huh:

this system will just drain you for every dollar and tear they can squeeze out of you

this is the big one and now he has to stay back in Morocco until after the results of his May 15, 2008 interview in Casablanca :(

oh by the way...any advice on the CR1..please share

GOOD LUCK TO ALL WAITING

Your question was asked and answered. See the bolded above.

Read this to verify.

30. According to the LIFE Act, a K3 visa may be issued when "an immigrant visa is not immediately available to the alien." To maximize the

number of aliens who may benefit from the LIFE Act provisions, VO has determined that an immigrant visa is "available" only when the actual

approved I-130 petition has been received by the IV-issuing consular post. If the I-130 petition is at post, or the applicant has already been

interviewed and denied the IR1 by a consular officer, perhaps due to lack of the I-864 AOS, that applicant must proceed with IR1 processing

and may not choose to apply instead for the K3. If the I-130 petition remains at or is in transit from NVC, or the applicant has already

commenced K3 application (by returning Packet 3 forms) when the I-130 petition arrives at post, he/she may continue to process the K3

rather than switch to IR1 processing. K3 applicants may opt at any time to process as IR1s rather than continue the K3 application.
