Netherlands DCF questions

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

My fiance and I are getting married in The Netherlands this June. She is a resident there and I am a US cit. Does anyone know if the consulates in The Netherlands will do DCF? Their website has wording that seems like they will. My other question is rather broad and has to do with the immigration. Whether or not you use the DCF you still need to file the I-130 correct? Is the only difference that normally the I-130 is filed in the US and not the country the immigrant is coming from? If so the K-3 visa is only to allow the immigrating person to reside in the US while the I-130 is processed? Am I understanding this process correctly or am I way off base? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

welcome, please read the guides section on dcf, it will explain the entire procedure. I beleive the embassy info link will show you whether you can do dcf or not for your particular situation.

hi!

I think you understand the purpose of the K-3 and how it does not relate to a DCF.

Good news for you, the Consulate in Amsterdam does non-resident DCF and many people have recorded their experiences. In fact, there is a special forum devoted to DCF Amsterdam at http://www.usadutch.com/

I think you'll find everything you need to know there, including info in Dutch for your fiance about setting up the wedding.

So, yes, you can marry there, file the I-130 and then the visa application and be done. I don't know what the current timeframe is, but historically it's been a very quick process for the Dutchies. :)

Yes, even this last one.. stuff in there that not even your USC knows.....

I would say they allow DCF reading the website. But you may call to reconfirm because sometimes the websites is not really updated regularly.

As for the your understanding of K-3, it is correct. If you do have DCF option, then DCF should be the fastest route in most cases.

Good luck
