i-130 adding step children under family

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm new to all this and am starting to gather all paperwork I was filling out the i-130 and under beneficiary's family I put myself but I'm not sure if I should put husband's children (my step kids). We aren't planning on filing any type of visa paperwork for them now...but I wasn't sure if I'm supposed to add their info in general. Or if I should.... in case we do in the future (maybe years from now)?

If they are your spouse's biological children then you need to put their information down there. There have been cases in the past where people did not do this and then try to bring the children at a later date, then the CO will be skeptical of it because they were never listed before this.

Yes, both your sentences above but for the bolded, second sentence, that is NOT WHY you put the information in that space.  You simply answer the questions asked, regardless of whether the people are immigrating to the US.  The OP isn't immigrating either, but he IS the beneficiary's spouse.  It really is that simple.  Questions asked on the form, should be answered with real information or "NONE" if none is correct.
