CR-1 CR-2 Forms and Fees

Due to some unforeseeable circumstances we are going to have to change from a K-1 and K-2 Visa to a CR-1 and CR-2 Visa. I've read the guides and a lot of posts and I get how to send it in and what I need. I'm just wondering if I have the forms and fees right.

Send I-130 Form and Fee $420

Front and Back of Petitioner's Birth Certificate

Marriage Certificate

Divorce Papers

G-325A for Beneficiary and Petitioner and Passport Picture

G-1145 E-notification

Evidence of a Bonified Marriage:

Co-mingling of fiances, lease, bank accounts, pictures etc.

Then After the NOA2

Pay $88 Fee for AOS

Then $404

DS-230 IV Package

Send DS-3032

Marriage Certificate

Police Certificates

2 Passport Photos

Beneficiary Passport Bio Page

Beneficiary Long Form Birth Certificate

Petitioner's Divorce Papers

Then

I-864 Affadavit of Support Package.

3 years of Taxes

1040 From most recent tax year

5-6 months of paystubs

Employment letter

Now here's where I get lost:

With the K-1 and K-2 Visa you needed a medical and I know here in Canada that's $250 for Adults and $150 for my son.

Do you need a medical for the CR-1 and CR-2 Visa?

Do you have to pay the $350 Visa Fee's as well as you did with the K1 and K2?

And lastly once you have your Visa and enter the USA are there any other fees I read there isn't an AOS or EAD Or AP fees like there were with the K1. But are there any fees that I am missing. (Besides flights, photocopying stuff like that I know) Just like form fees or biometrics or anything?

And are there any extra forms I have to fill in because I am coming with a child?

Thanks so much for the help :)

you need 2 petitions, 1 for your wife and 1 for the boy. Each petition goes through NVC with the associated fees. Each person needs a medical. However, once in the US there is no additional fees as they are permenant residents upon arrival

Good luck

So all the fees twice? Petition, Visa Application, IV Fees?

Yup, it is not like the K-1. Cr1 does not have a derivative visa automatically, you must petition for both your wife and for your son

Good luck

Do you still have to pay the $350 Visa fee like you did with the K-1?
