Hello from Alaska USA! I am a newbie to this forum. I have a question I hope you folks can help me with. I met Linh in October and we corresponded regularly. I have gone to HCM to meet her twice now (FEB 2008 AND MAY 2008) and we are going to apply for the K1 visa. I called her last night and she says she is now pregnant. Question is should we wait to apply for a K1 until after our child is born or can we forge ahead as is? If we can apply now, how do I list our child on the I-129?

I have a long road ahead as you all well know. I will be picking your brains a lot. Thank you for your help and good luck to you all.

Apply now for the K-1. You can apply for a Consular Birth Abroad, US Social Security number, and US passport (for your child) if your child is born overseas. You can add your child when he/she is born later in the process, and if you take care of all of your child's dual citizen paperwork, the child will not need a visa. If you're in Anchorage, you can go down to the Immigration Office at 10th and Gambell and they can help you fill the paperwork out. You probably won't need a lawyer with the vast resources on this site, but if you decide to get one, I can tell you who not to get in Anchorage!

For immigration purposes, your child is not a child until born.. Dependand on where you are in the process when that happens, will determine how you deal with that situation.... Besides, when born your child will most likely have a claim to US citizenship and therefore will not require a visa but a US passport. Pregnancy is not a reason to wait to petition, if you do not want to.

I have a long road ahead as you all well know. I will be picking your brains a lot. Thank you for your help and good luck to you all.

Congratulations on the baby.

You are going thru the toughest Consulate, so prepare very carefully and be throughal. B_weeks just returned from there with his fiancee and got a pink slip on the first try. His fiancee is pregnant. He can give you insight on what you should do.

I don't know how long it will take for you since you're going thru Nebraska but from the Vj timeline it looks like it's a bit shorter than CA. If you file now, the wait for the interview day will be around the time she gives birth depending on how long she has been pregnant.

My advice is to start the process so the birth and interveiw date are not close, advise the USCIS in your I-129f about the baby as well as the rest of your relationship. From what I've seen here at Vj, proactive usually works better than waiting for the USCIS or Consulate to ask for documents. With that in mind, I would gather any evidence that would prove the baby is yours as well as showing them that you are taking action now about your future child and wife. Then prepare your I-129f #18 statement and proof of ongoing relationship completely so the USCIS and HCMC Consulate have no questions about your case.

Good Luck!!!

Actually I think Nebraska forwards the I-129F's to California or Vermont Peter. They don't list the 129f in their processing times.

The Consulate may ask you for a DNA test also. Good luck.

Be careful!

Good friend of mine brought over his pregnant lady on a K1.

3 years later he found out he wasn't the biological pop!

He still loves the kid but they are divorced.

That's a little out of line Haole. I'm sure you mean well but I'm also sure the O/P is aware of the risks in any relationship.

I just checked the USCIS site and as of July 20,2007, you send your I-129f to Ca.....

While I didn't want to say DNA test, you're right that would be good evidence to have for the I-129f along with the rest.
