    A few weeks after you have sent your petition to the USCIA, they will send you a Notice of Action letter indicating that they have begun processing your I-130 application. You can check the status of your application as well as other processing time information at USCIS website.

  • Step 3

    A few weeks after you have received your last Notice of Action indicating the approval and forwarding of your I-130 application to the NVC, the NVC will send your relative a packet of forms that you and your relative must fill out before your relative can be given an interview date with a consulate abroad. The packet will likely contain an Of-169 form, and an Of-230 part one and two forms that must be filled out by the intending immigrant. An I-864 form is also included that must be filled out by the petitioner (living in the U.S.). The I-864 is the Affidavit of Support form that requires copies of the petitioners past 3 U.S. tax returns (or tax transcripts which are free from the IRS) as well as any bank or financial records available (see the I-864 for exact requirements based on your case). The petitioner must make at least 125% above the U.S. federal poverty to indicate to the U.S. Government that the intending immigrant will not become a federal charge to the Government when he/she arrives in the USA. If the petitioner cannot meet these requirements, then he/she must still file an I-864, and find a joint sponsor who can meet the requirements on his/her own. When a joint sponsor is needed ,proof of their U.S. Citizenship or Permanent Residency is required. (i.e. copy of birth certificate, immigration status etc). The joint sponsor must be residing in the U.S., and he/she must also submit his/her past 3 years U.S. Tax Returns along with bank or any other financial records available. The joint sponsor must submit his/her own I-864 form to accompany the petitioner's I-864 form.

    Once your spouse has been granted a K3 visa, they will be able to come live with you in the United States. Because the K3 is a "multiple entry" visa, they can travel using their K3 visa, and they can obtain permission to work with their K3 visa. However, if possible, once they arrive you should ordinarily pursue an adjustment of status application based on their pending immigration petition as soon as possible in order to help ensuring that they become a legal permanent resident (or at least have an application to become a legal permanent resident pending) before their K3 visa expires. It is also possible (and probably best) to secure permission for them to work and travel related to their adjustment of status application, rather than simply relying on their K3 visa. Similar considerations applied for your spouse's/your minor children if they come to the USA. on a K4 visa.
