CR2/IR2 discussion, anyone feel free to join!

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hiya everyone! So this is super random, but I haven't really seen many people who're independently looking after their CR2/IR2 cases/petitions. With a CR2/IR2 being for an unmarried child of a U.S. citizen who is under the age of 21.  As which you would also file a I-130. I was just curious to know if there are people out there like me. Most cases that have a CR2/IR2 involved are usually younger kids whose petition's were sent in along with their parent[parent's]. Usually when I'm having quiet a bit of confusion with the NVC I would always have to primarily look into the CR1/IR1 category which isn't really the same thing as a CR2/IR2 visa. Anyway! If anyone has a similar case to mine please join this discussion! Or if there is someone out there who's having a bit of trouble with their case[cases] join the discussion as well! I've made it as far as to have a CC ( case completed ) and currently waiting for an interview, I'd be more than happy to help in any way that I can. 😊

That's amazing! Are you super happy, nervous maybe 😀? Also it's crazy that your interview was scheduled so soon. Were you a little scared that your interview might've taken longer to be scheduled? I sure hope I get as lucky as you. I sure hope mine gets scheduled soon as well. 😵

After having 2 RFEs at NVC I was ready to be scheduled lol...but it’s for my son so I’m ready to be with him just worried about language barrier but have asked for interpreter and they agreed so now I’m just ready to buy the flight tickets as soon as he gets his visa....he is 7 years old

My case at the NVC was a nightmare too. I had some AOS documents rejected like 3 times which held me back 4-5 months. Not to mention that the lawyer on my case wasn't any help at all. And then I've been reading that it's taking 5-9 months to get an interview scheduled in Mexico. 😖

 

I can't say for sure, but I think that they won't ask too many questions in your son's case since it's a CR-2. I had a friend who also went through the same process when he was younger ( less than 15 yrs old at the time ) and he said that they asked like 1 or 2 questions before he got approved right away. I wish you the best of luck! ❤️

Thank you so much for the best wishes and I know it takes long to schedule Mexico...and for my child it’s an IR2 so I’m hoping for a smooth process

Oops! 🤪 You’re right. IR2 and CR2 are slightly different.
