After the I-129F & I-130 get approved for the k-3...what is needed?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay, so, our I-129F & I-130 were approved on 12/31/08. I just received the approval letters....can anyone please tell me what else is needed?

I understand that our I-129F & I-130 packets were now mailed out to New Hampshire (?) and they will then contact the American Embassy in Denmark, who will then contact my husband in Germany (Is this correct?)

Well, I am back in America now, and am planning to go back to Germany, so we can possibly go together to Copenhagen,Denmark. What other documents are needed?

I am not working because I literally came back to America about 2 months ago after being in Europe for about 6 months. Believe me, I want to work but there are barely any Social Work jobs out there currently.

Anyway, again, what documents will be needed? I know my husband needs a police certificate (from where he has lived since the age of 16)....but what else?

Thanks so much for the help! :)

They will both be sent to NVC, the I-130 will enter the CR-1 visa process, and the I-129F gets sent on to the consulate for K-3 processing.

If you keep the I-130 moving through, and perhaps delay a bit on the K-3 ate the consulate the resulting interview will be for a CR-1 IMMIGRANT visa.

For the most part CR-1 tends to take a bit longer than K-3 to get 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.

K-3 is similar to K-1 for consulate paperwork.
