Hi

I have been around for a while absorbing all the good info you guys give.

I am a naturalized USC since 2003 and want to bring my spouse of many years and my 2 kids here.I am thinking of going the K3/K4 route than the I 130.

The income tax returns that i have to show are filed married filing single.But someone told me recently that the filing status should be single since my spouse is not with me.Which is correct?

Secondly the birth certificates issued in India do not have the new born child's name on it, just the mother and father's name.I heard Immigration needs the child's name on the BC.How to resolve this issue?

I would appreciate your replies.And you will see a lot of me around.

Thanks again.

Yes, birth certificates will need the name of the parents and the child. K3 is effectively dead since February. You'll be taking the IR1 and IR2 route. Start by clicking on the word "Guides" at the top of any page here.

Married is married....whether your spouse is here or not... just to clarify... it is married filing separate not married filing single

Do you know you could have possibly filed married filing joint? in many cases it makes a big difference


YMMV

Hi

I have been around for a while absorbing all the good info you guys give.

1.)I am a naturalized USC since 2003 and want to bring my spouse of many years and my 2 kids here.I am thinking of going the K3/K4 route than the I 130.

2.)The income tax returns that i have to show are filed married filing single.But someone told me recently that the filing status should be single since my spouse is not with me.Which is correct?

3.)Secondly the birth certificates issued in India do not have the new born child's name on it, just the mother and father's name.I heard Immigration needs the child's name on the BC.How to resolve this issue?

1.) K3/K4 is dead they did away with it this year. look into the IR1 you will have to file I-130

2.) As long as you have filed your taxes you will be ok, I personally filed single even though through my employeer I have I am married.

3.) It is very common that the birth certificate wont contain the name of the child... you will have to get this resolved... very simple you would just go to the place where they issue copies of Birth Certificates and get the name of the child on the BC. My Husband had to get his BC corrected after they misspelled his Fathers name.... If you need the exact name of the place let me know, I am not sure where you are located but if it is in Delhi I could tell you exactly where to go

Thanks for the responses people. I was thinking of filing I 130 and asking for a K3 visa just to make them come here quicker.

Also you said "Do you know you could have possibly filed married filing joint? in many cases it makes a big difference "' Can you please elaborate.

Welcome to VJ! :)

To file married, filing jointly, you would need to get her an ITIN number (Form W-7), and use that instead of a social security number. If you file married, filing jointly, you get a bigger deduction on your taxes. If your wife works, you will need to file a form (forget the form number) to exclude her income, when you file your return. You can probably get better info regarding taxes on the regional forum that covers India. Good luck.
