Forget the K-3, improved processing at USCIS and NVC have eliminated it.

USCIS WILL tie the I-130 and I-129F together and approve on same date, then NVC WILL close the I-129F and proceed on with the CR-1.

MORE: http://travel.state....pes_2993.html#4

K-3 served only one function, it was derived at a time when I-130 was taking years to get approved, however now since I-130 is approved at same time as I-129F the function of K-3 (Entry to USA and WAITING for I-130 approval) no longer exists, so NVC kills the K-3 in favor of the superior CR-1 or IR-1 visa.

Any step-children intending to immigrate?? If so did you file I-130s for them?

I have seen many posts where NVC Kills the K-3, and then the petitioner having to rush file an I-130 for step child.

Sending an I-129F now, will slow down the processing of the I-130 that is currently being processed, USCIS WILL tie the two petitions together, and approve on same date.

NVC WILL CANCEL the K-3 if they receive the two petitions from USCIS together.

How will the Department of State process my K-3 visa petition?

Important Notice: Effective February 1st, 2010, when both the I-129F petition for a nonimmigrant K visa and the I-130 petition for an IR-1 (or CR-1) spouse of a U.S. citizen visa have been approved by USCIS and sent to the National Visa Center (NVC), the availability as well as the need for a nonimmigrant K-3 visa ends. If the NVC receives both petitions:

  • The nonimmigrant K visa will be administratively closed.
  • The application process explained below will not be applicable and cannot be used.
  • The NVC will contact the petitioner and you with instructions for processing your IR-1 (or CR-1) immigrant visa. For more information on the immigrant visa process review the Immigrant Visa for a Spouse webpage.

If the NVC does not receive your I-130 petition and I-129F at the same time, the NVC will process your I-129F petition. Then NVC will send the petition to the embassy or consulate in the country where the marriage took place. If your marriage took place in the U.S., the NVC will send the petition to the embassy or consulate that issues visas in your country of nationality.

Don't bother filing the I-129F.

Some light reading ? (look, I've been quoting Dan for ages)

Comparison on K-3 vs CR-1 - http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/204324-wondering-if-i-made-a-mistake-marrying-in-us/page__view__findpost__p__3060767

K-3 administratively closed - http://www.visajourney.com/news/2010/02/07/department-of-state-to-close-k-3-visas-if-i-129f-and-i-130-petitions-approved-and-received-together/

---

yer mindset, to wait for the I-130 to be approved, before sending in the I-129F petition, is wrong. These were sent in after the I-130 receipt notice, instead.

---

Sending in the I-129F now will actually slow down the process on the I-130 for you, as the I-130 is yanked out of it's original queue, and a new queue is started when the I-129F shows up. Waste of time, really, as

the approved I-129F will travel together with the approved I-130 (they are approved together now, these last 3-4 years)

and

NVC will administratively close the I-129F, as the basis for it (an I-130 that hasn't been approved yet) doesn't exist. What DOES EXIST, is that approved I-130, and with that in hand at NVC, is no need for NVC to do anything with the approved I-129F.

Clear as mud? Cool !

You've not done anything yet to submit the I-129F, so, IMO, don't submit it.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

:lol:

Yep my old argument against K-3 (Cost, and complaining about not being able to "Work, Drive, get SSN, etc...), is moot since NVC kills the K-3 anyway, hopefully without messing up people expecting the get K-4's for their children who did not bother filing I-130 petitions for step-children.

Thank u all for your replies though I'm still confused, am I stupid or what LOL???? But here my story exactly and u can tell me what to do specifically; I met my hubby on line on the 18th of January 2010, we first met on the 9th of June 2010 in my country Tunisia we got engaged on the same week and then he left my country, then he came back in the 30th of Novemeber2010, got married on the 5th of December. SO he went back to the US and filled the I-130 petition and sent it, on the 17th of January got the receipt. That's it so what's next to do we should sit and wait or is there anything helps to speed up the process? How long should we expect to wait till I can be able to travel to be with him once and for all.. Thank u thank u thank u!!

for 'speed up the process' -

learn all about NVC processing, then WHEN the I-130 is at NVC - GO FAST.

For now, otherwise, nope, is nothing to do until the I-130 is approved.

as to yer 'are you stupid or what' .. stupid? nah. i'd learn towards 'ignornant' but that is easily cured from reading and understanding and reading and reading and reading.

(Reading is cool, btw, much knowledge acquisition there, you can become powerful with knowledge)


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
