Paying I-130 Fee

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, thank you again to all the helpful people here donating their time.

 

I am a US citizen living in Calgary Canada, I am soon to submit a I-130 package to start the IR-1 process for my wife who is a Canadian Citizen.

 

I had some questions earlier that where answered by a helpful member of the forum, and this questions is related so I will briefly explain.

 

I was reading the guide to submitting payment and noticed the instruction: "If you live outside the United States or its territories, and are filing your application or petition where you live, contact the  nearest U.S. Embassy or consulate for instructions on the method of payment.". The nearest Consulate here in Calgary does not process immigration paperwork, the only such consulate in Canada is in Montreal. It may seem like a silly question, but do I contact the Montreal consulate or the one closest to me like the instructions dictate? We are using a money order to pay.

I'm only asking here first because from past experience, they are notoriously slow at responding to inquiries and this is the last step before we're ready to submit our application.

 

Thank you everyone,

Josh
