NVC case number for K2?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

we finally gotten our case number from the NVC but they only gave me one number.  I thought I was supposed to get one for my fiancé’s child as well?  Do I get another one later?  

 

I called the USEM in Japan and the woman told me I needed to file a separate I-129F for the child is the normal process.  While the child’s name on my fiancé’s petition may suffice, it’s up to me to call USCIS to ensure that the K2 is added or I will need to start over... any truth to this?? We’re freaking out here..

Nope, they're wrong. You cannot file an I-129F for your fiance's child. The I-129F is only for a fiance for a K-1...there is no option for their child. The child just needs to be listed on the I-129F.

 

Usually a dependent's case number is the same as the primary beneficiary's case number, except incremented (i.e. if MNL2018111222 is the primary beneficiary's number, then it's really MNL201811122202-01 and the child's would be MNL2018111222-02).

The child will need their own DS-160, though.

Thank you for the reply geowrian.  Do you know when I would get the second number?  NVC only gave me one number.

No, sorry. I always assumed it is at the same time as the primary beneficiary, but this specific is outside my field of experience or knowledge.

Personally, I would reach out the embassy/consulate again and explain that the child was listed on the I-129F and you are pursuing a K-2 visa for the child. Maybe they got confused and thought you were trying to petition for a child/stepchild directly (despite that being an I-130, and you having to be married already for them to be a stepchild) for a CR-2 visa?

thank you again for your value input.  I’m positive that the woman understood what I was saying but the information she was referencing was either wrong or she interpreted it wrong.  I believe it could be the latter.

My kids are 18 and 17. We don't need to file a seperate I129F .The case number will be only one for your fiance. You need to fill out I134 later and list their names on it
