Additional child since i-130 filed

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife applied for a F1 visa for her daughter who is unmarried and over 21, and the daughter's now 11 year-old son. This was in September of 2010. We've recently been notified of visa availability from NVC, and have started the process by declaring my wife as agent and paying the initial fees (affidavit of support and applicants') for the daughter and her son. However, the daughter is pregnant (but not married), and we're not sure if or how this will affect the process. We think the daughter will have her child before the visa interview. We notified NVC through e-mail of the pregnancy of the daughter. If there anything else that we need to do? When and how can we pay the additional fee for the new child as additional applicant? Thank you in advance for your help.

There is nothing to do until the baby is born.


Once the baby is born, then contact either the NVC or US Embassy (wherever the case is currently being processed) to add the child as a derivative beneficiary.  Provide a copy of the baby's birth certificate with certified English translation.
