K1 while having a Siblings petition case pending
« on: January 14, 2018, 01:43:57 pm »
Hi,
 
My sister who is a US citizen filed a petition for me and my family (including who now is my exwife) 7 years ago. During the process, I have divorced my kids mother and also met online a beautiful woman who is a US citizen. We started a beautiful relationship and I will be proposing on April when she comes to visit me for the first time. My girlfriend wants to start a K1 process for me so that we can get married in the US.
I would like to know if the new process will automatically override the previous one initiated by my sister or does my sister has to request to cancel it? Also, is there a time line suggested for a fiance to start a K1 process or could she just file it as soon as she is back after her vacations on April?
My 3 kids will remain with their mother for a few years before I petition for them, is that ok or should it be done right away?

Hi,

During the process, I have divorced my kids mother and also met online a beautiful woman who is a US citizen. We started a beautiful relationship and I will be proposing on April when she comes to visit me for the first time. My girlfriend wants to start a K1 process for me so that we can get married in the US.

The petition your sister filed for you could be cancelled, but I would not suggest you cancel it for a K-1. Let me explain why. First, a K-1 will take about a year on average to get to cita. 2, once you have been approved a K-1 and travel to the U.S., you have to marry and adjust status within 90 days of arrival. 3, while all of this is going on, you will not be able to work, drive, or even get a job. Yes, you could get a work permit, but by the time THAT paperwork is done and granted, A.O.S. would be complete. This could all take another year to get through after arrival in the U.S. All of these steps cost a good bit of money to get through as well! Lastly, she has never seen you even once yet. With a K-1 (or any other relational type of petition), you must show proof of a bone-fide relationship. A for a K-1 to be even accepted, it is required that the petitioner meet you in person at least twice within a year (unless is is an arranged marriage or religious reasons) if I remember correctly. Your best bet would be have your sister inquire about your current case.

How long has it been since your sister filed the petition for you?

Immigration might think that you're just anxious to get to the USA. They might think that first your sister petitions for you, the process is taking too long, so you cancel in order to do the K1 and get to USA faster. It will definitely raise red flags.
