Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Fiance and I got engaged Xmas Night. Just looking at starting paperwork ASAP and looking over everything Im completely nauseous. He is in PA I am in Ontario..

Couple ?s and Im sure they are on here somewhere but Im feeling so overwhelmed right now..lol I dont know whether i want to throw up or cry..

1. How do I know where to file the paperwork?

2. When it asks where I will be applying? is it always Montreal? for Canadians

3. I have 2 small munchkins that will be coming with me..Is there extra paperwork? I see the spot on the K1 to list them but is there more paperwork? or is that at a later date? haha Im assuming theres more fees somewhere for them?? Do they require medicals as well? interviews?

4. After we start the paperwork am i still free to travel between the border like normal or?? Looking at going to visit in March..Do I tell them we are engaged or just?? help

Thanks so much..

Tammy

Hi, and welcome to VJ

Where to send the documents is listed in the I-129F instructions.

Yes, if you live in Ontario you will interview in Montreal. If you lived West, you'd interview in Vancouver

K-1 has a derivative visa for your children. Make sure you list them accordingly on the paperwork and adjust their statuses when you marry and file AOS for yourself.

You can visit, but like always, entrance is not a guarentee. Tell the truth. If you are visiting your fiance then say...you are visiting your fiance. Always bring strong ties to Canada to help with the crossing

Start by reading the guides listed in the link I'm providing you and the "guides" tab up at the top of this page

Good luck

1) initially you don't file any paperwork, the USC must start the process. The location for him to file is in the form instructions

2) for a K-1 it is Montreal or Vancouver in Canada. For Ontario it is Montreal

3) not at the beginning... when you go to Montreal then yes they will have there own application

4) sure, but just like any other time you could be denied entry.


YMMV

Thanks Guys...

I have read the guides and my head hurts Im sure you guys can understand..:) Or maybe its just me..:)

I will be helping with the paperwork as Fiance is so busy with work he travels and all and I want to get this all going...

I get the usual border stuff. Ive never had any issues. I was just told it gets stickier crossing once paperwork is initiated..:)

In most cases for Canadians, mentioning that you are going through the visa process and/or bringing proof of that, shows that you are not trying to circumvent the immigration process. In other words, it works for you... not against you. You will find a wealth of information in the Canada Regional Forum. Welcome to VJ. :)
