approved for k3 interview. set embassy interview date, then did not go because we decided that it was too early before my wife could leave her country.

we received our notice in june 2008. the k3 was approved for an interview at the embassy. we scheduled in september for the interview.

now we decided that the time is right to continue with plans.

is there a time limit on how long the k3 is good for after the interview date is set by the embassy? like i said, we decided not to go to the interview appointment.

whats next?

are we sol?

please advise.

In the meantime did you keep the CR-1 moving through NVC?? File the I-864, and DS-230 with documents?

Contact NVC about this process.

If so perhaps do the CR-1 instead of K-3.

If you prepare for NVC when they request I-864 fee, and Visa fee, as well as documents requested by NVC. In many cases the CR-1 petition reaches the consulate just before K-3 interview, which causes K-3 to get dropped and the interview becomes a CR-1 visa interview.

K-3:

I-130: $355

I-129F: NONE

Consulate: $131

AOS: $1010

($1496)

CR-1

I-130: $355

NVC I-864: $70

NVC Visa fee: $400 ($355+$45)

($825)

I see many posts from K-3 holders stating, "Wow this sucks, I am stuck at home because I don't have EAD, DL, etc, or I am having hard time getting added to bank accounts because of NO SSN." K-3 has a 90 day or longer period of limbo while waiting for EAD or Green-card.

K-3 was developed at a time when CR-1 was taking much longer that today, NVC has greatly streamlined the CR-1 process to the point where K-3 becomes irrelevant.


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.

I can't believe you actually tried to slow down the process. You should have done the interview anyway. There was no guarantee of immediate approval and she wouldn't have had to travel right away anyway. I think you have 6 months after visa approval before she had to travel. Anyway, hope you can get it now that you want it.

You should have a year from the time the original interview was scheduled before it is considered abondoned. The petitioner should contact the embassy to see if it can ba rescheduled.

I think it is more common to delay or abondon a petition than many on this site would suppoose. So I'm pretty sure the embassy has dealt with this situation many times before.
