OK people... a wild one has just landed in my lap (OUCH)!!

My 17 year old daughter (she will be 18 in May 2002), who previously had NOT wanted to move out of the UK and live with me here in the USA has decided that now she has seen me happy with my new family, that she DOES want to join me here in the USA - darn kids!

She was included on the I-129F (of course) but has always been checked as 'no' when I had to say if she was going to move to the USA with me on all the forms. We even had to include her on the AOS paperwork we recently filed and had to say 'no' to her on that too.

With the new K3/K4 visas, I was wondering if I should just go ahead and get the London embassy to start off on a K-2 visa for her or think about her as a K-4? I don't think it's possible for her to be a K-4 (as I have a K-1 visa not a K-3), but just want to be sure of this before I charge off down the K-2 route without looking at anything else.

Brian.

If it has been less than a year since your K-1 visa was issued, check with the London
consulate on this...they can possibly issue her a packet 3 and get the process going.
If it has been over a year, check with London about whether they would allow you to
file an I-130 for her directly at their consulate, in view of your special
circumstances...they did this for one person. Alvena

Indeed - it's only about 7 weeks old!!!

I guess an email to them is the next step.

Thanks.

Most definitely...I think they will issue a K-3 packet 3 for him upon request. You
may have to fax them someting, however. See the K-2 pages on Doc Steen's site, note
the link for a "late k2". It should have some helpful info there. Alvena
