After filing DS-260...

#21
The husband will not be issued with a visa without a submitted DS260 form in his name. The wife should contact the embassy to find out about unlocking her DS260 to enable the husband fill out his own form.

Just wondering though, what took them so long?
Thank you Sm1smom for your reply.
They contacted the embassy but they sent them to Kcc and Kcc send them to the embassy. Who normally unlock the ds260? Is it the embassy or KCC. Can they still unlock it after an.interview is scheduled?...but on his wife's ds260 it is written they should contact the embassy if any family member name doesn't appear.

They took time because they didn't know that both has to fill ds260 ,just when they spook with me last week, that I told them my wife and I filled two ds260

KCC typically unlocks the form, however this is only done before an interview is scheduled. Once a case gets scheduled for an interview, KCC can no longer unlock the form.

Are they scheduled for a February interview which means they only recently received the interview notification? If yes, that explains why the embassy referred them back to KCC. It takes a while for the case to show up in the embassy’ system. They should wait a bit and contact the embassy again. This may take up to the second week in January.

Meanwhile, the husband should ensure he’s getting things like PCC in place for himself. He has to do the medical too of course.

Hello S1smom

the Embassy reopened their ds260, but they said they can only edit what is there, meaning the wife's details, which they don't want to change, they want to add the husband ds260 but they can not find the add applicant button to fill in details for the husband.
do you have any suggestions.

Thank you

Unfortunately I don’t have any other great suggestions. The embassy is the only one that can authorize the addition at this point. I guess they can keep trying to reason with them by continuing to plead their case as the husband will definitely not be issued with a visa if he doesn’t have a DS260 form.

No. It must be a legal relationship to be included.

Thank you SusieQQQ

Not having a father on the ds260 will not cause a problem since the birth certificate and the marriage certificate does not have the father details ?
If so since they did include a father that raised the wife . They have to remove him ?

Thank you

They can list the “father” if they want as long as they realize that father cannot obtain any form of immigration benefit through the “daughter”

thank you Sm1mom for your reply they have the ds260 reopen so they can add the husband. Since the wife put a person who raised her not knowing that ds260 needs a legal farther , can she just remove him ? And choose the I don't know box (which is true bcuz she does know her father )

She can do that or list him like I already answered above.

I’d personally leave him off, after all the birth certificate doesn’t have a father. May raise questions in interview if they think they are putting him on with the eventual mind of sponsoring him.

Hi Sm1smom,

I filed my DS-260 and and completed it months ago.
I should be current in April and recently saw that I could start my NVC Processing.
Yet, in the visa part of DS-260, I never found the part where I could provide my EAC number ( got a J-1 student visa three years ago followed by the OPT), yet I was able to provide my other visa informations. I am scared that there is some denial because of that. Should and Can I still unlock my DS-260?
Thank you :)

Again, you’re stressing over nothing. The only information requested on the DS260 is visa related. Why will they require the EAC number? That is a USCIS issued case receipt/number which will not be applicable to over 90% of the people filing out the form.

If you need to unlock your DS260 form for any other reason, KCC can always unlock it if you’re yet to be scheduled for an interview.
