I-129f case closed benefits received by other means

24 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can some explain to me what they mean by my spouse received status or benefits through other means? Our I-130 case on USCIS website says case was received still. Is this good news that my husband is approved and I’m waiting for the website to update our I-130 case?

They closed the I-129F for K-3 because they will proceed with the I-130

Federal law still allows this special category but it’s definitely not needed anymore.  It used to be a quicker path (and was set up that way) back when 130’s were taking a year and 129F’s were taking 6 months.  That be back when we filed.  My wife originally came in on K3.

Ok, thank you so it is good news of movement towards my husband cases coming to a final decision!!!

Actually, it just means there was no need to file the I-129f...It means nothing regarding the I-130.....good luck.

I agree with the above.  It only means that one leg of your original or theoretical dual path to immigration has been closed.

Exactly! Basically all K-3s get converted to IR-1/CR-1 nowadays. Even the initial USCIS filing fees are the same since there is no I-129F fee for the theoretical K-3 path.

It's just letting you know that the I-129F was administratively closed. Although the K-3 visa is still part of current US law, it's basically obsolete. In 2018 only 4 K-3 visas were issued worldwide. The following link shows how many K-3s were issued worldwide per fiscal year; https://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/Statistics/AnnualReports/FY2017AnnualReport/FY17AnnualReport-TableXVIB.pdf:

  • 2017: 15 visas
  • 2016: 102 visas
  • 2015: 182 visas
  • 2014: 392 visas
  • 2013: 144 visas

I expect near 0 to be issued in fiscal year 2019.

Ok! Thank you all again. It was pointless for them advising us to waste time on the I-129f.
