Recommended Posts

I petition for my wife.

My wife doesn't speak english.

So I filled out I130 and I485 forms for her.

we send the forms out months ago. Its in a rush.

Now we received interview notice. and we are preparing for the interview and reviewing the forms , we just realized that i didn't complete the preparer section as my wife did not prepare the forms herself. But my wife directly signed the forms on her behalf. I am really worry about that on the interview day , the officer will know that my wife doesn't speak english, but there is no preparer section on the forms. will the officer deny the case? really worry about it, its all my bad! can i explain that during the interview?

First things first - good luck in your interview!

Second - Always tell the truth and be upfront in the interview (or with CBP or any IO).

Edited: Apparently I worried too much...the section really is only for professionals working on your behalf. Great!

Best wishes.

***Moved from IR-1/CR-1 Process & Procedures to Adjustment of Status from Work, Student, Tourist Visas forum.***

**Moderator hat off**

That section is meant to be completed by attorneys or professional preparers; it is highly unlikely you not completing that section will cause issues for your case.

I filled out all our forms including the I-130 on my husband's behalf and thus filled out the preparer part. It might be different on the new form but on the old I-130, the instructions said to fill out preparer part if form was prepared by other than the petitioner.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just be prepared with a good and honest answer in case the CO asks.

Hi, dont worry about it. i did the same with my husband who does not speak very much english and it never ever came up. when he had to show any evidence he wrote in spanish and i translated it on a separate piece of paper. but dont worry if for any reason it does come up then just be honest, she is with you, you guys basically did it together, you just wrote it for her. good luck!

I do not know how your embassy in Mexico works, here in Brazil the official language is Portuguese, so in the interview we can use our language, normally the official asks which language you would like to do the interview, most of the time he does not even ask, Really portuguese Congratulations, happiness for your family.
