This question has caused a lot of grief. The proper answer is to write N/A when it asks if your wife will adjust status, then follow that with "Manila" "Philippines" when it asks the consular post where your wife will apply for a visa.

Don't leave anything blank. If you write N/A for the first part then leave the rest blank, after USCIS adjudcate the I-130, it might not send the I-130 to the NVC for further processing.

garylee,

The question you ask about does not say anything about K3s, let alone make an exception for them. I don't see the term 'K3' anywhere in the I-130 instructions, either. Read the question again, without adding anything to it this time, and then answer it as asked.

(BTW, a person who is in the USA as a K3 is not going to be having an I-130 filed for them - the I-130 was already filed at some time in the past, or they couldn't be a K3.)

Hi Gary,

I think you are over-analyzing the instructions (as we are all proned to doing)! Of course, that's easy to do since some of these questions aren't worded very well, in my opinion. :no:

If you read question 22 again, it does not say "do not write anything in this question" if your spouse is not in the U.S. I think it's just misleading since it starts with "Complete the information below IF your relative is in the United States and will apply for adjustment of status." However, if you read on, it says, "If your relative is not eligible for adjustment of status, he or she will apply for a visa abroad at the American consular post in (city/country.)" That is the part that applies to you.

My husband is also outside the U.S., so for our I-130, we simply filled in that he would apply for a visa at the consular post in London, England, U.K. Our I-130 was filed successfully, so I assume we did this correctly!

Anyone out there disagree?

Good luck...it's so easy to "read into" the meaning of the application questions. Just keep asking questions on this forum and we'll all try our best to help out! :)

Yes, I agree with SCY's post...you do need to write "N/A" in answer to the first part of question 22. Then fill in the consulate city/country where your wife will apply.
