Waiting for CR-1 Visa mail, Previous relationship interference?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I filed for my wife's I-130 November 10th in Bangkok, we have been married for almost a year now.

My question is about a previous relationship I had in which we tried to file for a k-1 Visa and things didn't work out between us. I had received a email and receipt # from USCIS about his but we never moved forward.

I am scared because I don't want my past mistake to interfere with me and my wife's current situation.

I haven't gotten a email for my wife's I-130 yet but it still hasn't been 60 days.

Not sure what I gain from making this post, I am just worried. Maybe someone has a past experience that is similar or some advice that can put me at ease? =/

Thankyou.

Can't tell you about your previously filed K-1 more than that you have to disclose that information. Hopefully someone else comes along shortly and answer that.

But I can tell you that when filing an I-130 with USCIS, you usually get a NOA1 (notice of acceptance) within a week or so. Since you haven't heard anything for 60 days, I would definitely call to see what's up.

Well I wasn't even sure I had moved forward with the previous k-1 I had visited a lawyer and filled out paperwork with them but never went to any offices myself...

I did however get a receipt # from them for the previous k-1 visa. in 2012....

I will call USCIS tomorrow when they are open, should I just call them from the website?

Now I am really worried =/

You need to withdraw your petition. Write a cover letter and and just formerly withdraw your petition. Even though it would have expired having that letter on record is helpful.

In the subject line:case number and than write that you formerly withdraw your I-129F application. I would ask the Tier 2 supervisor when you call if you can fax to them so they can add to your casefile.

Long as your wife knows abut the previous filing (no secrets) its no big deal. People file for others all the time.

Now as far as your current filing did you attach a G1145 to your petition on the top to get text and email they received? Since you are abroad only your email would get notice.

Just call USCIS tomorrow and inquire. More than likely you they ae just mailing to you or did you list a US address for all mail?
