Hello all,

I was told by someone that as a result of new laws that are going into

effect this year that any k1 applications that are have been submitted,

may need to be re-submitted in March. This person referenced this link:

http://www.gop.gov/Committeecentral/bills/hr3402.asp

I did not see anything that said that explicity, but has anyone heard anything

similar about having to re-file? I hope that this person that old me this is just

not very well informed.

I know that I am waiting anxiously for my 2nd NOA. I filed just before Christmas

with TSC->CSC and the official rec date was Jan 3rd. The uscis website says that

they are now processing applications rec on Dec 31.

I very much doubt that they'd throw everyone's pending applications into the trashcan and make you start again - just think how much extra paperwork it would mean for them! Whenever they change some other rule or regulation (for example, the annual fee increase) it only applies to visa applications filed after a certain date. I honestly wouldn't expect this to be any different - since you applied in December and you've had your NOA1 you should be safe.

I agree. Cant see them throwing out all the applications they already have.

They already have your petition. I think this just means if you apply after that date.

I think the law that you're referring to requires that the USC petitioner undergo more extensive background checks to assure that he/she doesn't have a record of domestic abuse.

You're right that the new requirement goes into effect in March, but as far as I know that will mean that petitions recieved March 1 or later will probably be subject to more lenghty processing times due to the added checks. It should not change anything about the petition procedure on the petitioner's end. No resubmission should be necessary.

Thanks for the replies. I thought that as well, but you never really know when you are dealing with a governmental beaurocrocy. This settles my nerves a lot. Good luck to everyone in their visa journeys!!
