A bit confused, K1 issued to child?

My wife went back to Kenya to finish up the visa for our 9y/o daughter. After these painful months apart, I just received the document scans and see that the Consulate issued a K1 visa to the daughter. I thought it was to be a K2? BTW, my wife has her Green Card which has added to my mind's confusion. I am making a leap in saying that I will need to go through the whole AOS mess again but the only information I can find on K1 visas is based on the Fiancée process which doesn't appear to fit the situation. Any enlightenment would be appreciated!

The child's visa actually says K-1?


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

Does the "R" mean relative?

Contact the consulate and tell them the situation. If possible, have your wife make an appointment to see someone at the Consulate . Take the passport with the visa and the NOA2 and tell them of the error. Its possible that they made a mistake. Consulates are known to make typing errors and correcting them. Good Luck, this can be sorted out.

I've launched my inquiry this morning as soon as I saw it. Thanks for helping me confirm my suspicion of error.

I just got a reply from the Consulate to my email (with a scan of the visa attached) apologizing for their error. WOW, I can't believe any of these people would have admitted it. So, the journey continues by going in on Monday to see about this matter.
