Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Chile

I am looking for information regarding how to proceed with legal status for my fiancee's unmarried 18 year old son.

He will be attending his final year of highschool this year in the states, because of the huge delay with K1 visas, he will be 18 when we get married.

I know there are restrictions on this but really am confused by the information I am getting.

Has anyone gone through this?

2/1980 – foreign exchange student to Santiago Chile

3/80 – Met Daniel at school

4/80 – we became high school sweethearts

2/81 – returned to the USA, Daniel arrived late at the airport to say goodbye

1981 – 2009 - Life happens. We both married others and divorced

7/23/2009 – Daniel found me via classmates.com

9/18/09 – Traveled to Chile to spend time with Daniel

10/09 – engaged!!

11/10/09 – returned to the USA

1/10 – Daniel began gathering his paperwork to start the K1

2/10 – earthquake in Chile delays everything

3/10 – went to Chile for less than a week

6/10 – received Daniels paperwork, started preparing K1

7/10 – K1 refused due to typo

8/12/10 – received NOA1!!

2/2/2011 - Received NOA2!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Make sure you get his K-2 visa issued within 1 year after the K-1. "Follow to join"

K-2 AOS is based on their status as a K-2 visa holder, not on an I-130 petition filed by "step-parent" So the age 18 rule does not apply. HOWEVER K-2 AOS must take place before K-2's 21st birthday, or they WILL age out.

Moving to AOS forum...
