Will there be a problem if the child does not go to the interview at the embassy with her mother and she comes to America first then we go back and get her daughter three or four months later?

ya, there's some problems to overcome.

first, if there's a set of documents on the K-2, ie - DS-156/7 and DS-230,

and the child doesn't show up for interview day

you have to tell the Consular Officer

to NOT put in the K-2 docs in the visa packet for the K-1.

IF they put it in the K-1's visa packet - the child cannot come through a POE.

Second - a K-2 (and a K-1) has about 6 months from visa issuance date to come into the USA. If yer delaying only 4 months, it makes a load of sense to go to the interview then the k-2 travel 4 months later.

Third - if the K-2 wannabe doesn't come to the interview, then ya still gotta have an interview on the K-2 - it's really hard to get in the queue unless GUZ IV actually knows about the K-2 (from paperwork, from email, fees paid, etc)

Then there's the medical exam - gotta have one of those also - usually gotten before the interview.

Good Luck ! You've some choices to make !

No problem. On the DS-156K form you list which of the children you want to have a K-2 issued to.

Then you also list which of them Will Join the K-1 on their trip and which Will Follow later, within a year of the K-1 visa issuance.

For most Embassies, the K-2s that Will Follow, do not have to attend the K-1 interview but will have (depending on age) their own interview to attend when it is time it issue their K-2 (decided by the K-1 emailing the Embassy with the suggested date of issuance).

Thank you for the info. Getting her daughter to the embassy for the interview would be quite tough because she is currently living with her deceased husband's sister 5000 miles away.
