I-130 Question - Japan - Form for Spouse and G-325A

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am an American living in Japan with Japanese wife.
We are planning on moving to Japan within a year and are filling out the I-130.

Everything seems to be going smoothly but I am a little confused on the addresses.
I don't have an address in the U.S. yet and will be using my brothers address for now.

I want to make sure I get this right:

Questions:

#2 - US Address
#18 - Same as #2
#19 - Our current address in Japan
#20 - Same as #19 but in Japanese characters
#21 - Same as #19 and #20

So I would only write the U.S address on #2 and #18 and the rest, our current address?

A different question about #17, "List Spouse and all children of your relative".
Would I put my information or my wife's (beneficiary)?

Last question about the G-325A.
Do we have to fill out all this information for both of us? What would be our "Alien Registration Number"?

Please advise and thank you!

I dont have the every question on these forms memorized. Can you help us help you a little?

your address: "Is literally your addess in Japan where you both live"

While the address where you wish to live in the US: " Is that address in the US"

Her address: "is the address in Japan where it sounds like you both live

#17, yes, if you are married and She is your spouse. Then those are the children of your relative"

Yes, it must be filled out for both ( the petitioner and the beneficiary ). I Didn't fill in the alien registration number.

Thank you very much and I apologize for the confusion.

#18 - "Address in the United States where your relative intends to live"
#19 - "Your relative's address abroad"
#20 - "If you relative's native alphabet is other than Roman letters, write his or her name and foreign address in the native alphabet"
#21 - "If filing for your spouse, give last address at which you lived together."

I hope this clears things up a bit and again, I apologize. Sometimes the wording is a little bit strange.

ahh okay... It actually sounds like #18 is not the same as #2 in your particular case.

YOUR CURRENT ADDRESS #2: is the address in Japan right?

#18 - Yes, this is the place you will decide to live. The place that if immigration wants to verify , then can come stop by your house/apartment in the United States where you intend to live. ( basically ).

#19, again, this is your wife's address abroad in Japan

#20 - AHH yes, because Japan does not use our English alpha characters. This is the place where you would write in the "true address" as if someone in Japan was trying to deliver mail to you.

#21 - Again, self explanatory right? have you lived together? if so, where did you LAST live together? if it is the same as #2, and #19.... then write it in again! ;-)

Yeah, these documents are sometimes a little too easy to read into them too much.
