Filing I-130 for stepkids while husband's I-130 is still processing?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

We just realized that to bring my husband's kids to the U.S. we need to file individual I-130s for them. My husband has a lifetime bar with a waiver available after 10 years (which will be up in August 2009). In the I-130 process for hubby, we have received NOA1 and a transfer notice to local office for interview, so I am waiting to receive notice of interview appointment for me at the local office.

MY QUESTION is, if we file I-130s for the kids now, will they

1. process faster than hubby's I-130 and be allowed in before him?

2. get put together with hubby's I-130 and process together?

3. something else?

Your thoughts are greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I don't know the answer to your question but I would certainly get the kids' petitions submitted now so that there may be a chance they can connect them. If the waiver is only availabel August 2009, wouldn't you need to wait until then anyway?
