More questions about K-3/IR-1

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

I have reviewed some of the information and have a little better understanding of all of this. I still have a few questions:

If the K3 is administratively dead,how then do you file the IR-1/CR-1? I see that you file for I-130. Is the IR-1/CR-1 the actual Visa type that is applied for at the appropriate stage? Or just one of the forms you then fill out after the I-130?

Once your IR-1/CR-1 is received and accepted you then sumbit I-129F, is your next step(s) then to wait for interview appt and to get medical/police reports etc? Is it after/at same time of interview that you actually apply for the Visa?

If you apply for K3/IR-1, when does your spouse actually apply for AOS? Is with K-1 you can do it after the marriage in the states. When does you spouse apply for AOS and complete the I-485??

Last question, I know I list the children of my spouse on the I-130. I read somewhere that we complete separate I-485 forms for the children. Is that correct? And we submit the I-485 forms together though correct?

Thanks. Appreciate all of the help.

The I-130 is the petition that when approved allows the alien to apply for an immigrant visa (IR/CR)

Once the I-130 is approved then the petition is sent to NVC where the application process begins. You must have a completed application in order to interview.

If you get a K-3 then AOS is submitted after US entry. IR visa does NOT require AOS

You do more than list the children on the spouse's I-130. If you wish them to immigrate then all children will need a separate I-130 as well. If no I-130's are submitted for the kids, then no IR visa for the kids. You should submit an I-130 for the spouse and children all at the same time.


YMMV

if spouse and kids not in USA, is not any I-485 to file for the IR-1/IR-2 visas.

For each person, that spouse and each child child, must file seperate I-130 petition.

Perhaps this can help you ?
