K2 Visa Process

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. My foreign fiancée and I have submitted a I 129F Form to allow us 90 days to marry. Her 14 year old daughter is listed on the I 129 F Form. Our plan is to travel back to Thailand after our marriage, wrap-up things there and return to the U.S. with our daughter. Since we are selecting the “Join Later” option for the daughter, at what point is the K2 form submitted? My thanks in advance for any guidance.

No k2 form, when you are ready for the child to receive the Visa, you submit a ds160 to the consulate similar  to what you will do for the k1


YMMV

Just keep in mind AP is taking ~4-7 months form AOS filing to being issued. Your then-wife can't leave the US until they have AP (or a green card) or else AOS will be abandoned and they will need to start over with a spousal visa to return to the US.

 

This doesn't stop your plan as stated...just making sure you are aware of the timeline before being able to travel abroad together (in case the plan was for both of you to travel abroad).
