I-129F, Petition for Alien Fiance

32 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Can same one please explain to me. I received two letter from USCIS. One letter is my I-130 approval. The second letter  says you filed form I-129 f to classify the beneficiary as the spouse of a citizen of the United States pursuit to section 101(a)(15)(k)(ii) of the Immigration and Nationality act.

 

In Visa petition proceedings, the burden of the proof upon the the petition. Matter of Brantigan ,11 I &N Dec.493 (BIA 1966). Based upon the evidence of the record it must be concluded that the petitioner failed to establish that the beneficiary is entitled to the classification sought.

 

Does anyone know what the second letter means. I’m so worried.

 

Thanks,

patrick12

I 129 is for a fiancee

the letter says you are applying for a spouse visa ( that is form I 130 )

 

and here your topic says alien fiancee but CR1 (spouse)

so,  which is it?

I agree, are you legally married?  If so, why did you file the I129f?  Were you potentially seeking a K3?

 

More information is required.

I applied form I 130 before and My lawyer said I could apply form I 129 to make the process go faster so today I received two letter I-130 approval  and the second letter as I mention above.

Yes seeking a k3 after my Lawyer told me it’s fast. And yes I’m legally married

It sounds like the I130 was approved, so the I129F sort of evaporates.  Hopefully your lawyer did not charge you additional money for filing the I129F as it was most likely a waste of time.

 

Good Luck!

Your lawyer needs to study the current immigration process.......It is not fast....K3 visas are obsolete.  In 2018, only 6 K3s were approved word-wide.  This year, I expect there to be none approved...

This will be a CR-1/IR-1 case.....12-14 months from start to finish........if there are no hiccups.

Do you know what I need to do for next step since now my application is approved. On the letter says to wait 30days for NVC to contact the beneficiary, I thought they will contact the petition first

No, the case now moves to the consulate via NVC and they will contact the beneficiary who will then fill out the DS260 to actually apply for the CR1 visa.  You can keep tabs on the progress, but I would wait for the 30 days before doing anything, and if after that time your spouse has not heard from the consulate, you can start looking into what is holding things up.

 

Good Luck!

This is a CR-1 case.  They are already married.  NVC should contact him next......or am I missing something?

Ignore the I-129F letter, since your I-130 petition was approved, it will go to NVC, this takes two or three weeks.  After it gets to NVC, it takes another four to six weeks to assign an NVC case number, they will send an email with this number and instructions on what to do next, usually uploading documents, completing the visa application form, paying fees, all online via the CEAC website.  After your documents are all uploaded and fees paid, they typically take three weeks after that to review and approve them.  Then there's another wait while they schedule the interview abroad, that can be one or more months later depending on the embassy/consulate and how backed up they are.  Good luck with the rest of the process!
