MAJOR DILEMMA...PLEASE HELP!

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

How is it possible that on the day my husband receives his K3 visa from consulate in Morocco that he then receives his interview for CR1 THE SAME DAY???

My attorney advises him to STAY THERE, he says it is best to finish it now, cheaper, smarter...BUT

I am desperate to get him here, as we all are to be reunited with our loved ones.

I dont know #1...can I cancel the interview there..fly him here and finish things here

#2...let him stay and RISK him staying much longer due to additional processing

(let's face it, it is likely)

#3...I am worried that cancelling this appointment may "look bad" and make things

harder once he comes

I really need some input

Thank you

Listen to your attorney's advice. They are professionals and see cases like yours a lot.

Both my approved I-129F (K3) and I-130 were recently sent to National Visa Center. I am going with the I-130 route.

In the long run you will be better off you if husband enters USA as an immigrant rather than as a non-immigrant on a K3 visa. You have waited a long time and so try to wait for a few more weeks.

Best wishes.

your attorney is a professional here in USA, but not in Morocco ( actually you used an attorney just to input all data in the forms)

reading all those postings about Morocco, you can see that it takes much longer for them to get the visa

but, on the other end they issued him already a visa, so there should be not reason to get another one

I am not sure if I fully understand your question but I believe that once the I-130 petition (Cr-1) is approved, the 129f (K3) remains at a stand still and goes not go forward unless you specify you want to proceed with the K3 as opposed to the CR-1.

In the chance that both the K and the CR-1 are at the consulate at the same time they will interview you for the CR-1.
