I wasn't certain were to post this so............ I'm researching the possiblity/legalities of getting my finace's daughter enrolled in high school in the US this next fall. Her mother and I may or may not be married before that time. (Our approval looks to be in May) Is this an option? Can she get a student visa, prior to the K3. Can anyone assist me or give me an idea how I might accomplish this. It's her senior year of high school and I would like her to complete the full year her in the US. Thank You.

If doing a K-1 for fiancee, then daughter would be issued an K-2 for child derivative.

If you marry before the K-1 and K-2 are issued, then you will be starting the process all over again this time by filing 2 I-130s for Wife and Daughter for CR-1/2 and perhaps another I-129F for K-3/K-4.

The student needs to be accepted to a school in the USA in order to get a student visa, usually this is for college, not high-school.


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

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

Sorry, I misspoke or wrote....I'm not the best with the immigration lingo, i've filed for an I129F with the daughter attached to the paperwork. All's going as planned, but it's the timing. I'm not sure my bride/daughter can get their consulate visit/approval before the beginning of the school year. I'm looking for a way/suggestions on how to get her started on time. It may be impossible, but I thought i'd ask. Thank you

I think you have your answer. Student visas are for those already accepted for enrollment in College. They do not apply to high school students.

Rahedk-

It is possible for your daughter to obtain an f-1 student visa to study at a US public school (high school): http://www.travel.state.gov/visa/temp/types/types_1269.html. I've had several friends go through the rotary club of VAncouver or other private organizations that setup study abroad/exchange programs for high school students (Google is an excellent researching tool). Be aware, though, that an f-1 does carry some drawbacks (i.e. I know for a college f-1, upon completing his/her program, the student must exit and not return tot he US for a period of two years. I'm not sure if this stipulation applies to an f-1 public school student visa). Furthermore, your daughter would be entering as a nonimmigrant, but with the intent to become a permanent immigrant (as you are currently going through the K-1 process). This may also cause problems, but please research further.

Don't give up, keep searching for ways to get your daughter into the states. Hopefully your k-1 goes through in time, allowing your daughter to enter and be with you and her future step mother come fall.

Good Luck!
