Completing I-130 - Previously LPR

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all and Happy Holidays to couples near and far!

My wife and I previously went through the K1 visa process and I moved out to the US for a couple of years. We were forced to move away before I was able remove the conditions from my 2 year green card. As I was not able to remove conditions, I abandoned my green card (using form I-407) as we knew there was a slight chance we'd be moving back to the states and I didn't want to be penalised.

Now, due to my wife's mother's ill health, we're moving back to the US and going the the IR-1 route as we've been married over the 2 year mark. We're in the process of completing the I-130 form and have a quick question - On questions 9 and 10 it asks if I (the beneficiary) have an SSN and Alien Registration number. Should I complete these using my old SSN and A number, or leave them blank?

Thanks so much for any help :-).

Hey there!

I was in a similar situation. I was an LPR a few years ago (on CR1), then my husband and I moved overseas, so I renounced the green card.

I am now applying for IR1 (already at NVC stage).

I put my SSN on I-130, but I didn't put my A number cause I actually had no idea where to find it...Either way my i130 got approved without any issues.

DO NOT LEAVE THEM BLANK.

Your SSN and A number are assigned to you for life. Report them.

This is correct. Your SSN is your personal identification number and it never changes. Applying for a new number or stating that you do not have a SSN when you do is fraud.

It's funny because the SSN states that it's not for use for identification but yet is routinely used as such. Also you can get a new number for some very specific reasons.
