Filed the I130 what do I do next

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Here is my particular case. I'm new to all this and I personally do not know anyone who has gone through this process. So... HELP!!!! I've been married to my wife for almost 3 years now. We have a daughter and she is in the US living with my parents. So, you can see that we really want to get everyone over to the US as soon as possible. I sent in my I-130 for my wife back in Aug 2010 and Dec 2010 I already go the NOA that my petition was approved and will be sent to NVC. I haven't sent an application for K3 or IR1/CR1.

1. Is it too late for the K3 route?

2. Do I need to file for one of these visa's to get my wife to the states?

3. How long does it take to get a green card and is that sufficiant enough to get my wife to the states?

4. If I still want to process the K3 to get my wife to the states, is it possible?

5. If I do send the K3 and it gets closed ... do I still need to pay for it?

Sorry I have so many questions. And I tried emailing people and looking at the website links that were forwarded to me. But I had no luck and just confused me more. I need to know asap so I know what to do next! I hate seeing my daughter being seperated from my wife.

K-3 is dead, so you are on the IR-1/CR-1 route.

Here is a guide for steps once you get to NVC: http://www.visajourney.com/examples/NVC_Process_Flowchart_v1-2.pdf

There are other guides at the top of the page.

You haven't applied for anything. You've submitted a petition and it have been approved and is now at NVC. When your wife interviews, SHE will apply for the visa

No, K-3 is dead - it isn't an option for you.

Your wife will interview for the Cr-1 visa, when she enters the US on this visa, she will be a permenant resident and will have her green card mailed to her

Good luck

PS - what country is your wife from? this will help determine how long it will be before she interviews.

Just to verify. I have to send in an application for the IR1 still. And wait to for it to be processed etc. Then they will give me an interview? Or it is instantly processed once my I130 reaches the NVC? I'm sorry, I'm really out of the loop with all this. My eyes get all cross-eyed when I go through the website and forums. Even just to fill out the forms I need to use different websites to make sure I've filled out the forms correctly. But I do appreciate the help!

YOU do not apply for anything. You have sent in the petition and, from what you have said, the petition has been approved and sent onto NVC

Once NVC processes the petition, it will be sent to the consulate your wife will apply for the visa in PI

These are many steps in NVC, have you done the DS-230 and the Affidavit of support?

Good luck

You filed the i-130 correct? You do not file anything more... you will go through NVC where they will want some documents then you wife will get a medical and go to a interview, from there she should be issued a ir-1 visa if you two have been married over 2 years.

I just received the notice of action was approved not even a week ago. We haven't received anything in the mail yet, but as far as the Affidavit of support I have that ready for when it needs to be sent out.

So if we don't apply for anything does that mean from the point of the interview we have to wait another 6 months until the visa is processed and approved or is it much quicker than I'm imaginging?

Find the NVC Guide, call them in about a week they should have your Manila Case number.

Next your wife will need to submit her Choice of Agent (naming you as her agent).

Then you'll pay the AOS invoice and send the AOS Packet once its marked as paid and you have the coversheet.

Then you pay the Immigrant Visa Application Fee. Once its marked as paid and you can get the coversheet then your wife will send her DS-230 (the actual Visa Application).

Once NVC has all of the required documents & fees her info will be forwarded to the Manila Embassy.

Then she'll need to complete the medical exam at St Lukes Medical Extension Clinic and finally attend the interview at the US Embassy.
