Termination of Current Procedure of 
Overseas Adjudication of I-130 Petition Under Consideration

Help Desk:

As a U.S. citizen living outside the United States, can I file Form I-130 at an American Consulate for my spouses and children?


Answer:

Currently, petitioners living outside the United States may file a Form I-130 with and have the petition adjudicated by a USCIS field office or American Consulate overseas. USCIS is reviewing options to have all Forms I-130 adjudicated domestically. 

Until now, this procedure has been considered a short-cut immigration process for the spouses and children of U.S. citizens who are considered residents in foreign country in that they could complete I-130 petition and immigrant visa application process fairly in a short period of time through the American Consulates in those countries.
