From Ukraine. Rushing process from CR-1 to K-3.. need advice

Hello, Ladies & gentlemen,

Urgently need someone advice…

I’m from Ukraine (Crimea), got married with US Citizen in October, 2013, there.

Now changed my residence while waiting for process to Moscow, Russia. 'cause it’s too dangerous being there.

Found an immigration lawyer who sent documents to NVC and got 1st NOA.

Now decided to rush process to K-3 to get faster to US and finally be together.

Lawyer said that according to i-129F, which states that “in accordance with the LIFE Act, the beneficiary of a K-3 visa has to apply for the visa with the embassy for the country in which the marriage took place”.

So it would be Ukrainian Embassy in Kiev.

but relatives and friends beware of my life that its dangerous situation happening in Ukraine now, the same in Kiev.

Few months ago i got notarized my affidavit for the purpose of i-130 Form for CR-1/IR-1 here in Moscow.

Notary public in the Embassy notarized it. but he adviced me to prepare for the interview anyway in Kiev, Ukraine, 'cause i’m a citizen of Ukraine.

So… i need an advice how to do it the best way…

I need to go to Ukrainian Embassy anyway? or are there any exceptions?

Can’t wait to be finally with my spouse.

Это что? Русский уже недоступен даже через онлайн переводчика?

( как быстро нашелся способ, однако :slight_smile: )

If your I-130 is already approved, you cannot get K-3 visa. ANyway, K-3 and I-130 are processed for approximately the same amount of time, so it doesn’t make much sense to get K-3.

what’s that?
Did you fill out DS-230 (DS-260) form yet?

In that form you may have listed your place of residence as Moscow, Russia. Based on that, your I-130 interview will be in Moscow. If you listed Ukraine as your place of residence, your interview will be in Kiev.

You don’t need a lawyer for this process, it’s pretty straightforward.

конечно нет. В Москве никто на русском не разговаривает, не пишет и выход в инет возможен только на английском. Даже если тот английский, через онлайн-переводчика :wink:
