Timeline

I have a question that hopefully someone will be able to answer, My husband and I submitted for the I-130 and K-3; Both the K-3 and I-30 got approved at the same time my husband and I was under the impresion that he could come here with the K-3 and await for the I-130l so we perdued the K-3 and he arrived sucessfully to the US and have been here for 3 weeks. I received the I-30 petition to submit for the affidavit of support although my husband arrived here under the K-3 and I am not sure what we are suppoust to do from now.

What should we do next, do we have to follow the I-30 and await for another interview date and he should return to Panama for this or do we have to apply for the adjustment of status under the K-3 and work permit. We are a little confuse on what to do next HELP!!!! any help will be appreciate it

If you want, you can just go directly to apply for status adjustment (I-485) and work permit (I-765) ....

The only way that AOS could be considered "optional" is that you have 2 choices right now. Either apply for AOS & EAD, or continue with the I-130 process and your husband will have to return to his home country for the CR1 interview.

Which is cheaper? Returning to his home country + the affidavit of support fees, visa fees, travel expenses etc etc etc, or $1010 for AOS?

By my math, AOS/EAD is cheaper and faster.

So i will just ignore the I-30 and continue with the adjustment of status ? This will not affect me in any way?

It will affect you by saving you money and time and allowing you to work sooner.

When you send in the AOS package also include a copy of the NOA2 from the I-130, and I think you also have to notify NVC that you are pursuing AOS rather than returning to home country for CR1.

Notifying NVC is optional.

by ignoring all I-130 related requests from NVC is in essence notification
