K1 visa tax question
11:38 pm February 13, 2023

I've done a ton of research but obviously everyone's situation is slightly different. So, let me summarize and see if I'm right or not. My wife came over to America April 2022 on a K1 visa. We got married and then applied for I-765/I-485. Neither got approved yet. She's been living in America since. I see people saying we have 2 options.

1. Married filing jointly with a W-7 application.

2. Married filing single and then amend after she gets her papers to MFJ.

To me, option 1 will get you the better return quicker, if you need the money. It requires more effort though because you'll need to go to the IRS for someone to send your documents (passport).

Option 2 is easier because less paperwork now and filing an amendment will be far easier once you get a SSN. However, you'd lose an exemption so owe more in taxes now.

However, when I look up option 1, the W-7 application says "If you have an application for an SSN pending, don t file Form W-7. Complete Form W-7 only if the SSA notifies you that you re ineligible for an SSN." Doesn't that mean anyone currently in AOS can't apply with a W-7? I checked the box to get a SSN when filling out the forms.

If I choose option 2, are there any services that allow me to efile without a SSN/ITIN?

So, once the K1 visa is approved by the USCIS, it says it's valid for 4 months after that. Mine was approved by the USCIS back in June. However, it didn't leave the NVC until sometime in November. I now have an interview scheduled Feb 8th. I did remember an email saying they would autoextend it but has anyone else ran into this issue?

Barbados Packet 4

Hi Guys,

I am currently preparing for my K-1 Visa interview in Barbados. I sent the embassy my statement of readiness and they sent me packet 4 however I did not receive an appointment letter/email. The packet did not include instructions on how to make an appointment and pay the DS160 online. I am a little confused as to what I should be doing now.

Has this happen to anyone before? Can anyone give me insight on how to proceed further? Thank you in advance!

Hi everyone,

How long does it generally take for k-1s to get their interview date after receiving your case number from NVC?

I received my case number from NVC on Oct 12th but the status is still saying "At NVC".

P.S. My interview will be in Barbados, for anyone who has had experience with this embassy can you also share what it was like?

I migrated to USA leaving my daughter back home. My usa citizen husband who filed for me told me he would also migrate my daughter (from a previous relationship). My daughter visited us every summer. An I-130 was filed. Covid19 and the stress of Money amongst other things depleted our marriage. Although the I-130 establishing the relationship between my daughter and estranged ex husband was approved, My ex husband is refusing to complete the process of migrating my child. Please advise what steps I should take. I know I can do the I-751 with a divorce waiver at anytime but I m more concerned about my child who is currently here with me since December due to Covid. Please advise what steps I should take to adjust her status.
