10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am debating on sending a I129F form for my spouse also.. in attempts to speed up the process of having him here with me... a long shot I'm sure but I am trying anything... I have already gotten my receipt notice I 797 from the I130 form that was filled... So what I need to know is all that is required to submit the I129F for my husband.. any advice is welcome.. Thanks! :)

I129F is for fiance...if you already have a husband, you need to apply for a spousal visa.

actually it can be for a spouse as well.... after u have applied for the I130 you can submit a I129F to bring your spouse to USA to stay with you while the I130 is being processed... there is a link for it below.. and thanks for replying..

I don't think you can. It even confused me since a I129-F in for un-married couples. What confused me more is that there is a I129-F and a I129 form that might be abolished as it applies to a K-3. Anyway. Here a link from the past that might help.

Honestly if you already received your NOA1 for the I-130 petition, I'm not sure it would be sped along at all by filing the I-129 at this point. K3 visas take about the same amount of time I think as the CR1/IR1 visas right now. And most likely if you did file the I-129 then it would be closed at the NVC stage because that's what they do when it shows up after the I-130.

But if you choose to I wish you the very best and hope it does expedite the process for you.

Filing an I-129F to start the K3 process will not speed anything up. In fact, you will be slowing the process down because in order for USCIS to tie the two petitions together, they will pull the I-130 from its current place in the queue and place with the I-129F that was just submitted.

An adjudication decision on both petitions is usually made at the same time and if approved, both petitions are sent to the NVC at the same time. Since the NVC usually receives both petitions at the same time, the K3 process will be administratively closed per current NVC policy. Current NVC policy is to administratively close a K3 process if they have an approved I-130 petition on station.
