Are you a USC or LPR?     

 

USC would complete the I-130 for your spouse (listing the child) and a 2nd I-130 for the child.    For your spouse the I-130a is also required.        (LPR only needs to complete the I-130 for the spouse, listing the child is all that is required .. do not have to file a separate I-130 for the child)

 

Ryan gave you a link to USCIS for the I-130 .. EVERYTHING is listed there including links to the instructions for the I-130

i am a USC. Thank you for your help. Would you guys recommend places like RapidVisa assisting in the process? I’ve looked over the i130 which looks fairly simple, but I just don’t want to fill anything out wrong and get denied. 

Sadly many people have used their services and regretted it.

RapidVisa doesn't help, you have this website where you have a free, unlimited resource to asking questions, and also getting WAY more informed answers than RapidVisa could ever provide. Their service is a waste of money, you pay them hundreds of dollars just for uninformed, sometimes even flat out wrong answers, and to fill out and put together the information yourself anyways.


Our CR1 Journey So Far:
 

USCIS Stage:

  • Feb 8 2019: Sent package
  • Feb 14 2019: Delivered
  • Feb 21 2019: NOA1 (PD Feb 14, 2019)
  • Assigned to Nebraska Service Center (yay... 🙄)
  • Waiting for: NOA2
