Recommended Posts

Hi all respected members 
 
My I-130 Immigrant petition for relative was filled in May 2007 and I was single on that time, Now I have four kids (all kids are under 18 years) and spouse.
I want to know the procedure how to add them with my case.

hi

 

you should write to the nvc to add spouse and children asap

 

 

Since sibling category is a long wait, I have always assumed we apply and forget about it. I thought all the info will be updated when the sibling’s priority date becomes current and we file more forms. 

My question is, through out the 13-14 year long wait, do we update NVC of all life changes? Marriage, divorce, childbirth etc.

Most people do not, none of it is that relevant, the relevancy arises when the PD number is current.

 

Currently varies between 14 and 23 years and is getting longer, we are talking generational wait periods for someone filing now.

Thank you Boiler. Another poster wrote “add spouse and children asap” so I got curious. I applied for my brother 2 years ago and left it alone 👍🏻

I can not think of a reason why, people divorce, people die, well in these sort of time periods.

I think the “add ASAP” advice probably took into account the PD mentioned  - F4 is current for Jan 2006 now and document submission for August 2006 so it’s possible they’ll be asked for document submission in the next 3-6 months or so. For someone who just filed a couple of years ago like @Junior11agree no rush.
