Filed: K-3 Visa Country: India


I got married in India last year and filed the I-130 and 129F/k3 in the US. Apparently they both have the same processing times and I received approval notices for both last week. My husband lives in India and has never been to the US before. The approval notice for the I-130 says "the petition indicates that the person for whom you are petitioning is in the US and will apply for adjustment of status." I have called USCIS and NVC five times and got five different answers about what to do...they include "send USCIS a letter asking them to correct their mistake, file I-824 (more paperwork to process and $200), contact NVC (who could not help me because they had no info yet), let him come on the K3 because it takes less than a month and then do the adjustment of status (does K3 really work that fast?), and finally an immigration officer said to do nothing it will get taken care of in India (why would they mail it to India if they think he is in the US?)

Does anyone have any advice on what to do? I am very confused. The K3 approval notice looks fine, but I would rather have him come with an I130 visa. I also don't want any confusion with his paperwork when he attends his visa interview. The people at NVC said they would not be receiving any info on him if the approval says he is in the US.
