I-130 for children?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what's going on with this. We decided it would probably be best to wait until my wife is over here before petitioning for her (our) 9 year old daughter. We'll be very busy setting a family foundation, her getting a job, and me finishing my B.S. degree. Anyway, I never filed an I-130 for the daughter, but she was listed on the I-130 as being my wife's daughter.

The part that is freaking me out is the "IV FEE AGENT" letter says:

If you did not receive a fee bill for a child that was originally listed on the approved immigrant visa petition filed with the US Citizenship and Immigration Service, then the NVC has made a preliminary determination that the child is not eligible to accompany or join the applicant in immigration to the United States by virtus of the age of the child exceeding 21 (aging out).

The daughter wasn't listed on the approved petition however! She was only mentioned in part C. of the I-130 (info about your alien relative)

Do they just put that on EVERY letter? I was under the impression that separate I-130s should be filed for children.

Yes this is standard notation.

US citizen can petition for a step child if marriage happened before child's 18th birthday.

Moving this to: "Bringing family members of US Citizens to America"

Okay! Thank you so much! That is a HUGE relief.

A few things, just for peace of mind why not call NVC and talk with an operator for petition status.
