K-3/4 or I-130 - Husband in Dominican Republic

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

This is my first post. I got married to my husband, in the DR, on June 18, 2005. I filed the I-130 on July 27, 2005. I got the receipt 10 days later. I filed the I-1129F on 8-17-05. It was approved on 8-19-05. DR posted petition on waiting list 10-12-05. My husband has just moved up to about 14,000 on the waiting list as of February 28, 2006. On January 16, 2006, his I-130 petition was approved by USCIS and sent to NVC. Problem- He has a son. I did not file and I-130 for him as yet. We were planning on them coming to the U.S. on K3 and K4. I am guessing that I can delay action on the I-130 so that we don't have an even longer delay on them coming to the US. I am going to file the I-130 for my stepson right away. Is this ok to do?

Thanks.

Yeah filing the I-130 for your stepson is the right thing to do. It will save time later on for AOS.

scy is right, file the I-130 ASAP.

Whatever you do, DO NOT hold up your own I-130 to wait for the one for your stepson. You will regret it later. What I think will happen is that since you are on the waiting list at 14,000, you have about a year to wait and in that year, your stepson's petition will have been approved and he also will be on the list. At that point, you should contact the Consulate and ask to have his interview with yours. You may want to get your Congressman to help you here. This is a common situation and the Consulate will usually want to save time and do all of you at one time.

Please visit our Dominican immigration forums and you will surely get more info on your situation.
