K-1 Versus I-130..... I think this is total B.S., and its not right for a K-1 (not yet married) to receive interviews before I-130's (already married). I dont understand the logic behind that. And everytime I see K-1 from Jamaica getting an interview before my husband pisses me off even more! Marriage should be treated with higher priority than K-1's period!

~~moved to general immigration discussion from IR1/CR1 process and procedures. Topic is discussing priority of K1 vs IR1/CR1 not the IR1 process~~

Definitely agree wish that they both are speedy

I call everyday 3x's hoping we have a date scheduled. I I dont understand why it takes so long after the case has completed. But you see K-1's come through thr NVC after yours, and scheduled interviews asap. And I am being told maybe Aug before we get ours, this is sad.

Well, this is a contentious issue. But please remember that K-1s still need to get married then adjust their status. During this time they generally have some restrictions on travel and working.

Lots of K-1 people have been stuck at the Texas Service Center for 8 months or more now. Just to get their petition approved. Yes, some K-1s fly through the California Service Center and they get in much faster than others but who is to blame for that? USCIS in my opinion.

For what it's worth I was also stuck at the TSC for nearly 8 months before an approval, then a long wait at the NVC. Please note that K-1s don't need to spend much time at the NVC as no civil documents are submitted there.

I know the process, I am referring to once the NVC completes the case and schedules the interview. I'd rather have my husband with me now thats all. I know we are so close to the end but the end still seems so far away. Almost a month waiting on a interview date
