I-130 to I601-A - What's in between?

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I understand the the approved I-130 gets sent to the NVC and that there are steps after that, however I am unclear which steps are taken in my particular case. We will be applying for the I601-A waiver. (And in between somewhere must administratively close absentia removal order).

You will have a visa interview, where you will be denied and able to apply for the waiver then.

hi

you can't file the waiver unless the deportation order is administratively closed, if not the beneficiary will have the interview in his or her country, get denied and file both waivers, the i212 for deportation and the i601 for illegal presence and the hardship letter from the petitioner

yes I understand that part. my question is, what happens after I get approved for the I-130? Since I'm filing the I601A, do we still go through NVC process? Do we still need to file for a visa somewhere in between (i-485)? The process itself is what's confusing.

I'm not completely sure. I know that for a fact if your inadmissible for other reasons than unlawful presence. Don't file it. You have to Wait until you have your visa interview to file a I601 waiver if you have a qualifying relative. And if you are eligible for I601a file it now so you don't get an interview scheduled and not have your waiver approved.

1. Pay the I-864 fee and DS-260 fee.

2. You file the I-864.

3. Your spouse files the DS-260.

4. Your spouse interviews for his visa at the US Embassy/Consulate. The visa will be deny because of his illegal entry and deportation.

5. You file the waiver. USCIS will adjudicate the waiver based on your stated hardship.

Yea so he has a removal in absentia order against him. The problem is we cant file for the 601a until we have an approved i130 (hopefully any day) and we sucessfully have his absentia order administratively closed.

Hi, did your husband get his Visa in Brazil after the approval of the 601a waiver? 

Did he have the court terminated his Deportation order?

what questions was he asked in Brazil. 

Thankyou
