Question concerning the K3/CR1

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

Hi all,

I'm new to the sight and was quite excited about all the information here and I am hoping someone here can help with my question.

My Fiance has a young daughter and our plans are to marry in Romania and then start the paperwork to bring them to the US together.

From doing some research I saw that when you apply for the K3 that if the I130 is approved before the K3 that you can change the Visa request to an IR1/CR1. Now I also saw that there is no derivative of the CR1 like there is for the K3 so I am wondering would we be better off going with the K3/K4 or is there another option open to us?

Thanks in Advance,

Old Dog

When applying for CR-1 for wife, you also apply for one for child by filing an additional I-130 for the child.

Immigrant visas like CR-1/CR-2 have the superior benifit of green-cards upon entry, K-3/4 have to file to adjust status to receive green-card.

Note: compare the 2 visa types, you will find that there is not much difference between the different visas for processing times, compare timelines.

The decision needs to be made before filing I-129F, USCIS will hold I-130 back in favor of the I-129F.

You'll be money and headaches ahead by just filing an I-130 for each of them.

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