Hi guy's,

I am preparing my K-1 visa package, and am stuck on completing form G-325a. There is a debate on whether this form should be signed or not, but that's not the issue. The problem is I am confused as to whom need to sign them. Should I the petitioner sign and date a G-325a form, and also have my fiancee sign and date hers?

Thank's guys, now I am clear on the G-325a signature issue. So I am supposed to send a 2x2 passport style photo along with the G-325a form, that's it just 1 is enough or do I need 2 photo's?

There should be a G-325A, signed, with a passport photo attached for the beneficiary AND for the petitioner.

The visa processing fee that is paid at the time of the interview has recently gone down from $350 to $240. The I-129F petition filing fee has not changed, and is still $340.

On the G-325A, on the box at the very bottom where it calls for "Applicant's name". Do we each write our names on our respective G-325A, or do we write my wife's name of both of our G-325A? I'm the husband and USC.

The problem is I am confused as to whom need to sign them. Should I the petitioner sign and date a G-325a form, and also have my fiancee sign and date hers?


Each signs their own

There is NO debate on if they actually NEED ot be signed. They DO NOT need to signed (text of USCIS internal memo below) The PROBLEM is that all the adjudicators do not read memos and SOME people have received RFEs for the signature and then you are pretty well stuck.

Now since you also have to get her signature on the Letter of Intent and that MUSt be an original signature, why not get them both and sleep well? If you insist on risking an RFE then I suggest you write on the beneficiary's "Will sign at interview" And attach a copy of the memo (official memo is available here at this site, that's where I got it)

__________________________________________________________

Interoffice Memorandum

To: SERVICE CENTER DIRECTORS

From: Michael Aytes /S/
Acting Associate Director for Operations
United States Citizenship and Immigration Services
Department of Homeland Security

Date: November 1, 2005

Re: Guidance for Processing Pending Form I-129F Petition for Alien Fianc(e) when
G-325A for Petitioner and/or Beneficiary is not Signed and/or Photos not Submitted.

Purpose
To provide field offices with guidance on processing Form I-129F petitions when the accompanying G-325A is missing signatures and/or photographs.

A properly executed Form G-325A is required for all I-129F petitions. Previously it was standard practice to issue an RFE when the beneficiary failed to sign the G-325A and/or failed to submit photographs. From the date of this memorandum, an RFE should not be issued in instances where the beneficiary failed to sign the G-325A and/or failed to include photographs provided that the beneficiary is residing abroad. The beneficiary will be required to sign the Form G-325A and/or submit photographs at the time of visa issuance abroad. It is also not necessary to RFE for the petitioners signature on the G-325A, if the petitioner failed to sign it. The signature of the petitioner on the Form I-129F should be deemed sufficient for purposes of adjudicating the petition. Finally, it is important to note that the petitioners photograph is still required for the adjudication of the I-129F, so if it is missing, it must be requested prior to adjudication.

Questions regarding this memorandum may be directed through appropriate channels to Mica Pilz of Service Center Operations.

On the G-325A, on the box at the very bottom where it calls for "Applicant's name". Do we each write our names on our respective G-325A, or do we write my wife's name of both of our G-325A? I'm the husband and USC.

To each their own.
