I-129 rejected!

I sent in my I-129 application 1 week after I received my notice of receipt for the I-130. I just received my I-129 sent back to me stating that I can only file that if I have an I-130 pending, because my I-130 has been approved.

I think I have been hurt by this speedy action because now I am stuck waiting for an immigrant visa.

My NOA1 (receipt) for I-130 was on Sep 5. My NOA2 (approval) was on Sep 22. I sent my I-129 on Sep 10.

Is there anything I can do?

Re-send the I-129f now that the I-130 has been approved.

My $0.02: If the I-130 is already approved, there's absolutely no reason to file an I-129F for a K-3. Pursue the IR-1/CR-1 route.

moving to K-3 Process forum...

Improved USCIS Form G-325A (Biographic Information)

Form field input font changed to allow entry of dates in the specified format and to provide more space for addresses and employment history. This is the 6/12/09 version of the form; the current version is 8/8/11, but previous versions are accepted per the USCIS forms page.

Say thanks to god for your quick I-130 approval and follow CR-1. Better visa anyway. You will receive green card about a month after you enter the US. You will not have to spend $1010 for adjustment of status with CR-1.

(I'm going for the IR-1 and blowing off the K-3. Even if it takes an extra couple months, it's worth it to not have to deal with USCIS again)

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Note:

Please fill out I-130, wait 6 months for approval, then 3 more months for an interview. (Unless of course we've bombed your country into the stone age, then you qualify for expedited processing.)

Welcome to the USA!!!

Incorrect. The I129F K3 cannot be processed BY LAW after an I130 has been approved.

Montreal: BEAT!!! Approved!!!!!

Yes I know that as well... that is why I am asking for advise as to how to progress and get my wife and child here in the same time frame as the K3/K4 would allow.

I did everything I was suppose to do in a timely manner. I filed my I-129F within a week of getting my I-130 NOA-1in the mail, but the USCIS decided to get off there butts and do some work for a change, and I am getting screwed for it. Does anyone know a way around this because of the extenuating circumstances. i.e. I-130 approved in 17 days as opposed to many months as is usual?

Honestly, your situation does not, in my opinion, count as extenuating. You got approved VERY quickly. I know it is not what you want but you will not receive any sympathy from USCIS. File the I-130 for the child, the $355 now will save you thousands in AOS fees.

Good luck.

Yes well, sometimes, we don't get a choice. Unfortunately, you are "stuck" with the CR1 and must file for the child.

I didn't get a choice to file my I129F as I was planning on doing because USCIS approved our I130 in 9 days. Them's the pits.

I think you misunderstood something. The I-129F was rejected according to law. Filing it again will get the same result. The course of action now is to file the I-130 for the child and hope for another speedy approval.

I was trying to do a K3 visa so that our child can obtain a K4 derivative visa. Now that I can't do the K3 with an I-129F, does this mean I need to now file separately for my child, at the additional cost of $355 for another I-130?

Which you would have had to pay even if you had gone K-3/4. In order for the K-3/4 visa holder to adjust status in the USA would require one anyway.

YMMV
