Filing for I-129F while in the US

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

HI,

I am on a F-1 visa and I live in the US. My fiance' has just filed a I-129F for a fiance visa.

Did anybody went through the same kind of process? I mean to file for it while in the US and not in your own country?

If yes how could you manage the interview with the consulate in your own country? Are they flexible in setting the interview date?

Thanks,

Raffy

Not sure about the fiance visa process while the beneficiary is in the USA. You can go back to the native country for Medical and interview when the time will come. But someone can advise you better.

Another Option: You can marry in the USA and then you both file I-130, I-485, and G-325A for adjusting your status. In that case, you don't have to go back to your native country for the medical and interview.


I-130 Timeline with USCIS:

It took 92 days for I-130 to get approved from the filing date

NVC Process of I-130:

It took 78 days to complete the NVC process

Interview Process at The U.S. Embassy

Interview took 223 days from the I-130 filing date. Immigrant Visa was issued right after the interview

If they have filed the I-129F marrying in the US is not an option anymore, 'cus even if they cancel that petition they can't prove they married in the spur of the moment.

You are right, if they already filed, then marrying now is not an option. In that case, the beneficiary has to go back to the native country for medical and interview. I thought, they have not applied for I-129F yet, but it seems to me, they have already applied for K-1.
