Is the time saved bringing an immigrant wife of a us citizen over from mexico by a k-3 visa worth it as opposed to just waiting for the i-130 to be approved. He has already applied for the i-130 he was informed the received it.
State/Country relating to question: California
Got some answers on how to handleour problems.
she was here since a very young child, by the advice we were given she was not legal and was going to turn 19 had a voluntary deport letter so they said she should go back she did. Had me file a i130 and said just to wait until it ok'd. so far this is what were doing. Want to no about K3 process, if it will shorten time.
Hello. It would probably be a 3 or 4 months difference. If they tried to change it now, it may be problematical and could cause a delay. Honestly, the CR-1 visa is the best between the K-3 and the CR-1 because once she enters the U.S., she enters as a Resident and doesn't have to do anything else. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I would be happy to answer them for you without additional charge. If there is a delay in getting back to you it is either because I am answering other questions or I had to log off, but I will be back with you as soon as possible. It is VERY important that if you are not satisfied, please ask additional questions. My goal is to provide you with top-notch service. And please don't forget to rate me, but please rate me on my service to you, not the state of the law because I have no control over that. Also, a bonus is always appreciated.
