Pregnancy during I130 process

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

I am a US citizen who lives in Hong Kong, China and applied my spouse visa I130. I plan to move back to US with her.  Most of the document request have been submitted and waiting for approval.  Now my wife is 6 weeks in her pregnancy and I am really worry about.

 

1.  I don't know how long is the wait for the interview (nobody knows)

2.  what happened if she granted her green card while she is in her late Maternity (can she stay in Hong Kong for delivery because she can't board in her late maternity) 

3. What if she granted her green card before her late maternity (before 36 weeks) but she will have no insurance or maternity coverage which will cost a fortune in the US for delivery a baby

 

I just wonder if anyone can help me on that.

What is your plan for health insurance once you are both back in the states?  You are right to be concerned about the costs of delivery, as it can be astronomical.  The ideal situation is to have a great employer-based plan that will cover you both, plus the baby.  Maybe as you get to the point of establishing domicile, you can take that into consideration for future work.  

 

Because health care is so expensive in the US, one really needs to consider the value of an employer-based plan as part of the overall compensation.

 

Is she a citizen of HK?  Does she currently have good medical coverage?

 

I commend you for looking into this early on; we see so many here who are ill-prepared for these things.

Something is wrong with your dates. How can you get you case number before your marriage took place?
