K2 during I-129F?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

 

We have almost got our packet ready to go and I just want to check as I see conflicting information. There is NOTHING that I need to do for my daughter at this stage other than list her on my I-129F as my dependent in question 16.

 

Then from there what happens? We begin to apply for K1 and K2. Am I sent two separate packets or is it linked?

 

Thank you

Correct.

 

After I-129F approval and NVC processing, both cases will be sent to the consulate. The beneficairy will apply for a K-1 and fill out the DS-160. Then another DS-160 will be filed for the K-2 child. The 1 petition covers all unmarried, under-21 children.

You said "My Daughter"  is it a step-daughter or your biological daughter?

My biological daughter. I’m the beneficiary.

OK.   when you said "my I-129f"  I was thinking petitioner.      .. so never mind.  :)      Yes just list the child on the I-129f.

 

After USCIS and NVC .. There will not be two packets from the embassy.  The process at the embassy is  X 2 as you will be doing two visa applications, the exact process varies from embassy to embassy .

 

What country are you?
