Filed I-130, confused about K-3

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I mailed in the I-130 petition for my husband, who is Turkish, and I received a I-767C Notice of Action.

I heard that I can file a I-129F (K-3) for him so that he can come to USA to wait for his green card to be processed, and that I should file the K-3 after I've received the NOA1.

I am a little confused...

Is the I-797C, Notice of Action (receipt notice), the NOA1?

Should I now send in the documents for K-3? Or do I need to wait until the I-130 is approved?

Dayna,

Yes, what VJer's refer to as NOA1 is the Receipt Notice for a petition or application.

Waiting until the I-130 is approved to begin the process leading to a K3 visa would defeat the purpose of a K3, which is to allow a spouse to come to the USA as a non-immigrant while waiting for the I-130 to be approved.
