Skip through the NVC with a K3?

I'm trying to make sense of several posts lately and want to get my facts straight ...

After a K3 is approved by a service center, it's sent to the NVC which automatically forwards it on the the embassy for the beneficiary's interview ... correct? No lag/bog/down time at the NVC like with a I-130 ... right?

Thanks & good luck everyone :thumbs:

This is what we chose to do. Go the k3 route and not deal with the i-130 NVC process at all

Good luck in whatever you do


"you fondle my trigger then you blame my gun"

Timeline: 13 month long journey from filing to visa in hand

If you were lucky and got an approval and reunion with your loved one rather quickly; Please refrain from telling people who waited 6+ months just to get out of a service center to "chill out" or to "stop whining" It's insensitive,and unecessary. Once you walk a mile in their shoes you will understand and be heard.

Thanks!

Thank you ! :D

I just want my wife home ... I'll deal with the other stuff later ... that's why I filed an I-129F. If by some off chance both petitions do end up approved at the same time, then I'd lean toward the I-130 ... but 'time' is more important to me than anything else.

Good luck to you along the rest of your journey! :thumbs:
