Confused by I-129F Question 18 (description portion)

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all (again) :-)

I'm putting the finishing touches to my supplemental letter for Question 18 on the I-129F and I must admit that I am still a little confused about what USCIS means by "describe the circumstances under which you met".

I just took the opportunity to tell OUR story, about how we met on the Lucky Lovers matching site and shared at least a hundred e-mails and dozens of phone calls getting to know each other before I finally made the trip to Moscow to meet her in person about 5 months later. I go on to describe the time that we spent together, and how I met her family, and stayed in her home during the visit. Brief mention is made of the fact that I've made 2 additional trips in the last year and a half, And of course, I give mention about our genuine love for each other and our hopes for the future. In all, it's about 1 page long.

Is this what they want to see? Or something else? I want to get this right the first time!

Thanks!!!

That's what they want to read, but I hope it fit on one page. It need NOT be a biography. Just a simple paragraph or two of how you two met. You needn't tell them that you've been writing a hundred emails or that you're calling each other 5 times daily. Just the simple facts of how you two met.

Sorry for the double post.

Thanks for the tips!

I just wrote in the big box on the actual I-129F form "Please see attachment: I-129F Supplement, Quetion 18, Part B" and then I'm going to place the description letter immediately following the last page of the official form.

Boy, what a ball of nerves I am right now!
