AOS or CR1??

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My spouse has entered the US with a K-3 visa and we are wondering if we must pursue the Adjustment of Status application (I-485) or wait for the I-130 to come around and pursue it back in Turkey.

The I-485 seems to ask for a medical form and is unclear what that entails...

Anybody else with similar questions or experiences?

thanks

If you submitted the necessary documents and paid the fees to NVC then you can wait for the CR-1 interview in Turkey and take it. Probably easier than going thru AOS for the K3. Can almost pay for the plane ticket not having to pay another $1010 for AOS. Can make it up being able to work getting the SSN and GC with the CR-1 and not having to wait to adjust status and get SSN with K3.

K1 denied, K3/K4, CR-1/CR-2, AOS, ROC, Adoption, US citizenship and dual citizenship

I blew it and we ended up going thru HELL adjusting status. Turned out it would have been cheaper and easier for all three of us to fly back to the Philippines and do the CRs.

Thanks a lot for the advice, I guess we're not in a big hurry. We'll be going back to visit anyway, so we might as well just visit during the interview. We'll have been married for 2 years by that time and it indeed sounds easier. We haven't paid those NVC fees yet, but I'll get on that....

Thanks again.
