I-130 question

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All. I am preparing my I-130 and i faced a small question that is confusing me. I recently filed an I-129F and due to circumstances, i withdrawn it before it reached the Consulate. Now that I'm filling the I-130, i see this question below. Is this asking if i ever filled an I-130 or any petition in general?

Have you ever before filed a petition for this or any other alien?

Thanks guys. Now just a little more help here since i don't want to make any mistakes that would result in RFE

it states : If YES, give name, place and date of filing and result.

So i'll give her Name

Place and date : are they talking about TSC and the date filed?

result: just state that It was withdrawn because we got married.

thanks everyone

Please keep in mind that we were not Approved a Visa and only the I-129F was approved.

I don't believe they are correct. It's a very innocuous question; you are overthinking it.

Yes you have filed a petition before. Write down the type of petition and result (it was approved) but in the end no, that beneficiary did not acquire a visa.

yes you state her name, the place of filing (the location the NOA1 came from) the date you filed, and state what happened... was it approved and then you withdrew it or you just withdrew it before it was adjudicated?
