About to file I-130. Where or when do I let them know I am filing for K3?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,

I have been reading the forums and the guides and for the life of me can't figure out where I should let the government know I am after a K3 visa for my wife. I am about to mail in my completed I-130 packet but want to know if my intention needs to be mentioned somewhere.

Perhaps they will ask me later down the road? Thank you!

Review the guides: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...mp;page=k3guide

When you get the I-797 also called NOA#1 from submitting the I-130. About 2 weeks after mailing the I-130.

You submit the I-129F with the NOA#1... Follow the K3 instructions for the I-129f.

Regards,

I'll be right behind ya this weekend, Thx! Got NOA1 for my I130 today, so will be getting together the I129F this weekend and mailing on Monday.

Have to ask - why would you even want to consider K-3 when I-130 approvals are out at the same time or even before the I-129f? Eager to give USCIS $1010 instead of keeping it for yourself and eager to have AOS wait time and interview again?

Seriously people, consider going the CR-1 route - same time line, immediate green card and can work right away.
