AOS of children for K1 Fiance

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Philippines
Timeline

I am working through the process for my Filipino Fiance to be with me. The Petition was approved 10/31/14 and is being sent to the National Visa Center. I understand the process up through her getting her Visa after the Interview in Manila. I am assuming each child plus her will need the medical exam and their own passport with the required fees for the medical.

My question is the petition includes 3 of her children. I am wondering if they are required to have their AOS filed with my Fiances during the 90 days from arrival, or do they wait until hers is approved. Trying to get a better understanding of the timeline so I can ensure the forms are submitted on time and the cash is available for the required fees when needed.

Yes, each child will need their own medical and civil docs, such as birth certs and passports. Each child will also need to pay the visa fee. What I'm not sure of is if each child needs an I-134, or if one for the whole case is sufficient. Someone should clarify on that.

As for the AOS, the only advantage is that if the children are 13 or younger and their AOS applications are submitted together with their mom, they pay about half the fee ($635 for each child 13 or younger instead of the full $985).

Also the important thing is that you and your fiancee marry within 90 days of her entry with the K1. You don't have to file AOS right away if you are unable to. You can also file the AOS for the mom first and do the children later keeping in mind that you would have to pay the full fee for each child.

Also, until mom does AOS she cannot travel or work so you would want to that as soon as you can anyway, you just don't have to worry about it being within the 90 days, same thing for the kids.

If any child is 14 or older, you can wait to do the AOS for that child if you are unable to pay for them all at once because they would pay the full fee either way.

Here is a link with the fees as well as the instructions:

Each child will be processing their own visa application at USEM, so yes separate fees, separate medical.

For details on the process in the Philippines follow the flashing arrow below, all listed there will need to be completed for EACH child along with your fiancee.

Pop over to the Philippines forum and say HI, lots of good info from folks there: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/129-philippines/
