CR1 - K3 ??

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Forgive my ignorance, and no matter how much I read I still dont find the difference [or possibly not reading well] between the CR-1 and K-3 Petition..

I'm trying to help my little brother (USC) who got married in the Philippines. I'm getting involve now as he found himself a little confused of the esteps to follow..

He submitted his petition and is at NVC. His last transaction consisted in paying $70 for the AOS fee. I get totally confused since it was my understanding the AOS is done when the person gets here.. anyway.. I would like to know what guidelines should i follow in order to assist him with the rest of the process, applications, etc, etc..

Thank you in advance,

Paying the AOS fee means he's on the CR-1 track. If it were K-3, it would have passed from NVC right to the US Embassy without any fees or documents being collected.

Here are LingChe's Shortcuts. Use them as a step-by-step guide for what to do next.

You're sweet to help your brother. Good luck!

P.S. AOS, in this case, means Affidavit of Support, not Adjustment of Status like in the K cases. Read LingChe for more information about it.

The acronym AOS is used here for two separate purposes, Adjustment of Status and Affidavit of Support. Your brother is at the Affidavit of Support stage of a CR1 visa process, not K3 in any way.

Ya, he's on the CR-1 visa track from the I-130 petition.

The shortcut is GREAT, but if you'd like the official scoop, as well, from travel.state.gov, have a read?

DS-230 - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3190.html

I-864 - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3730.html

General NVC stuff - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_1335.html

If he is using the online payment portal, and wants some speed through NVC,

here's a brief rundown of what to do, how that works -

You might want to study the GUIDEs section here, as well - there's an NVC flowchart (albeit a bit outdated) that might be useful to ya.

Good Luck with the reading ! Read Much!


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
