Yet another I-864 query

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi! :)

I am waiting for the NVC to mail back the I-864 forms so I have naturally been doing some reading up on how to process them and I am confused. In some places it looks like the instructions are to send the forms back for processing and in other areas it seems I should send the forms to my beloved husband for him to bring to the consulate. Which is correct? Or is it both, and I need to send him a copy?

Sign me, mildly confused.

Thanks for any advice!

The way I understood the flowchart for an I-130 petition (IR-1/CR-1 visa), the USC mails back the I-864 long before the spouse even gets to the embassy for an interview. According to the flowchart, the I-864 is part of what completes your case, which needs to be done before its sent to the embassy (where your husband comes into all this). I think your interview can't even be scheduled until you've returned the 864, since your case wouldn't be complete.

I think (but am not completely sure) that the equiv of this form - I-134 - is taken to the embassy if you do a K3 (nonimmigrant) visa... maybe that's where the confusion came from. Hope this helps! ttyl,

We stopped pursuit of CR-1 to pursue K3/AOS. For us, both required the same document, we could only have one valid copy, and the K3 was moving faster.
