After a diligent search of the USCIS website, these forums, the Code of Federal Regulations, and commercial websites, I cannot determine when USCIS requires the submission of Form G-325a. The USCIS website does not mention it in its K1 Visa instructions.

This issue and others have me fretting. If I want to supplement or make amendments to my petition application, can I do so? How? My K1 application (with 300 pages of evidence) was submitted on May 12, 2011. Thank you for reading.

It should have been sent with your petition. Both parties need to fill one out, sign and it goes with the rest of the documents. And you probably didn't need 300 pages of evidence at this stage, maybe at the interview, but it seems like a little much for the petition.

The G325A is submitted with the initial petition to USCIS.

You can't really add to the petition once it is submitted, it is more of a 'set it and forget it' type thing. You can send seomthing to USCIS but honestly they likely won't put in the effort to find your petition and match it with when you sent in. You can add additional information once you reach the interview stage but at a file of 300 pages, what more do you have to add? You'll want to keep your petition easy to approve, they already won't read your 300 page petition.

You want to focus on primary evidences like passport stamps, visas, etc

Good luck

Your 129-F Petition is Incomplete lacking the 325's and also states passport photo to be attached to the 325. Did you send Passport Style Pictures?

Respectively, attached to what. The 129-F ? Get to your Fiance/Fiancee a 325 as soon as posible and have that filled out and you yourself. Also, make sure the dates on the Form(s) is current. (USCIS Forms have expiration Dates usually located at the bottem Right hand Corner)

If a petition will languish in inaction ("grow cobwebs"), why can't I submit the missing G-325a form? After all, if USCIS sends RFEs (requests for evidence), the evidence must be sent somewhere to someone or something wanting that evidence. What is that process?

I would take a LONG SHOT and try this. Have "2" 325's filled out by each of you. Make ALWAYS a Copy of the NOA1 and send that with ONE OF EACH of the Signed and Completed 325's. Save the Other 2 for a posible RFE. Always send a Copy of the NOA1 with any Supportive Documents.

Have her send "2" completed in ink and signed, you yourself as well. I would attempt what I wrote above ASAP. It maynot do anygood but you never know. As it stands now, you are really waiting for a RFE 4 to 5 months from now for not completeing the Required 325's. Good Luck
