Hello VJ'ers,

My wife will have her K3 interview next week and will hopefully be in the US later this month. This week I have received the Affidavit of support Fee Bill and the IV fee agent bill being processed for our I-130 (IR-1)

My question is....should I start the adjustment of status and request for employment process even if I plan to fly her back to her home country for her IR-1 interview when it comes up? Looking at the timelines, it is taking about 6 months for Adjustment of Status interviews to occur. I'm unclear as to whether a person can work before the Adjustment of Status is complete. In other words, does the EAD for work get approved faster than the AOS or no? Anyway, I suspect her IR-1 interview will happen in about 4 months. So, I'm thinking that maybe I should not bother with the Adjustment of status/EAD process.

Any input would be appreciated!

Thanks.

hahuhobrad,

If you have reasonable confidence in your suspicion I would pass on the AOS for sure. Even if it's more than 4 months, the K3 status and visa are good for 2 years.

Maybe go for the EAD, though, as that would be useful if you're a bit off on the time to immigrant visa interview.
