    Immigrant visa

    Ah, I got it. You will be fine. I would bet the embassy will have your passport and visa ready for you. The agent us just trying to help you get what you need quickly and having you come back to the embassy to pick up your documents rather than mail them to you Congrats on the baby. My wife and I have been trying for a while to get pregnant..

    Immigrant visa

    One thing to consider is that most Airlines won't let a woman fly if she is past 36 weeks pregnant. So if she can't fly because of airlines rules and your child is born in the foreign country, you may need to file additional paperwork in order to leave the country with the new born baby, like proof it is your child (paternity test, etc). https://travel.state.gov/content/travel_old/en/legal-considerations/us-citizenship-laws-policies/citizenship-child-born-abroad.html
  3. OK, so in a nutshell, my wife came here on a K1 with her son. We were married within the 90 days. I filed the I-485 and advanced parole, but she has a family emergency and needed to return to Colombia before either of them have been processed. We tried doing an Infopass appointment and get an Emergency Advance Parole, but was denied as it is not an immediate family that has the emergency. (grrr.) This is very frustrating, she was all set for the AOS, but had to leave the country. We are very much in love and our US marriage is fully legal. She is also pregnant with my child.... So, right now, she has already returned to Colombia. I am starting the VISA process over under the I130 for both her and my step son. My questions are: 1. Since I already filed the 485, should I send in an official withdrawal of the 485 for both of them? 2. Do I need to withdrawal the original K1 Visa???? 3. On filing the new I130, I am including a letter outlining the situation but realize it will take another 12-15 months to get them approved. Is there any other options that the community knows about??? Any Help please
  4. I am not going into details about about why this happened, but my wife was in the US on a K1 VISA. We were married and I filed for AOS AND AP at the end of August. She and her 7 years old son HAD to return to Colombia and could not wait any longer for the AP. Yes, I tried to do an emergency AP with an Info Pass appointment and was denied. They are gone, back in Colombia now, I can't change that. I know that since she left without the AP and before the AOS was completed, she can not return to the US. So, I am starting the process of CR1 now for both of them. My question is, do I need to file a withdraw of the current i485 or will it conflict with the new i130 process I am beginning now. If I have to withdraw it, how do I do that???
  5. I filed the I-131 (advanced Parole) for my wife in mid August, with the normal 90days wait times sufficient. But her father's health has taken a turn for the worse and I need to get her and her son back to Colombia sooner. Is there any reason why I can't schedule the info pass appointment at the local office or would that impact the current i-131 that is already somewhere in process??
  6. Can I send them both in the same package? Can I schedule them for interviews together? Or is EVERYTHING going to need to be done separately?
  7. So even though they both came together on the 129, I have to do 2 separate 485 for each of them. My step son is only 7.
  8. LOL.. OK you guys got me confused... I filing both the 485 and 131 at the same time. My step son came in with her on the original 129.. Why do I need to file AOS separately for each of them? The $1140 fee is only for my new wife? Do I have to include additional fees for the biometrics for her too or is the $1140 cover everything?
  9. Filing for AOS for my new wife and step-son. I have got them both listed in the i485, he is listed as her child. I am filing a I131 as well. Question is do I need to file a i131 for each of them or just one for her???

    Questions about I-134

    easy answers first. -Put the A number of your fiance in the Part 2 area. - Only list the children that are coming to america with her would be my gut, but if you put both of them in the original I127 document than list them both. For your annual income, put your projected income for this year. The tough part is not having a 2016 year tax return. Without that, I fear you may encounter an issue. You will definantly needs all of the letters from your employers. Also, get them copies of every pay stub for the last 12 months along with all of your bank statements. In these interviews, all they are doing is going through a checklist. and marking off that you have the requested documents. If you bury them in documents they will be happy. But again, not having the 2016 tax return could be a problem. Give them your 2015 tax return and than any kind of proof f income from your time working in colombia. Good luck
  11. Just had the worst 2 hour experience. I have been trying to figure out how to pay the MRV (sp?) fee for my K1. BTW it is $265 per person, meaning that finance and child is $530. Anyway I called the embassy phone line. (703-249-4652) to figure out how to pay the fee. After giving them the information, they tell me the reason I can't pay the fee online is that I registered them as "immigrant" and not as "non-immigrant". The idiot on the phone (her name was Tina btw), said I had to start all over again and reschedule all of my appointments (uh-oh). THEN she deleted the accounts for my fiance and son and hung up on me. Sure enough, I tried to log back into the system and my fiance's account is gone. So I am frantically trying to create the account as a "non-immigrant". As the rude person on the phone instructed, I went to the webiste and choose the "non-immigrant" option. Once it gets to the part where it want to know what type of "non-immigrant" visa I need, I select the K1 (see the attached file non-immgant.jpg) When I hit "continue" it then takes me to the "Immigant Visa" website and instructs you to log in..... (see attached K1selected.jpg). This is exactly what happened originally, So I try to outsmart it. Since I already have the DS-160 confirmations, I tried the option on the non-immigrant website that shows I have the DS160 but need to apply for the VISA. Then it asks me for what category of non-immigrant VISA do I need to apply for. Guess what.. THE K1 is NOT listed as a non-immigrant visa. Here is further proof. https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-co/niv/information/visa_categories You will not find the K1 listed here, because their website classifies the K1 as an immigrant VISA (wrongly I might add), so when you go through the process on the website, it takes you into the immigrant Visa website and go through the process. The problem here is that for immigrant Visas, there is no fee to pay. See the problem.... So my appointments just got canceled 5 days before them and I am now thinking I have to cancel flights already scheduled for my fiance to go to the interview. Luckily I was able to call back in and get someone else on the phone that was able to rebuild new accounts for them and reschedule the interview and bio metrics for the original days. This could have been a massive disaster if I had not pursued this payment. I was not even sure I had to pay it, as the website let me go through the whole process and schedule the appointments without paying any fees. I have a feeling it is only Colombia's embassy that is screwed up, so if you are going for the colombia Visa be careful. My advice is once you have the DS-160 completed with confirmation, do everything else via telephone (703-249-4652) (pay the fee, scheduled the appt, etc.). Their website is screwed up AND they don't care.
