My American husband and I (from Sweden) are currently putting together the documents for us to send in our I-130. Although most of this seems pretty straightforward, we are having some confusion over the G-325A forms. Namely:
1. When my husband and I got married I took my husband's surname but decided to keep my surname as a middle name. In Sweden, this means that my maiden name is the first last name on my passport, and when I ordered an extract from the tax records (the equivalent of birth certificate) it is marked that my maiden name, though in the "surname" section of the form, is technically a middle name. Should I still write my maiden name together with my married name in the G-325A form?
2. Secondly, the "applicant's residence" question. My husband and I met at a Scottish university, where one would live in one place for a year and then move to another apartment. During this time, my husband would go back to his parents' house during the summers. After we got married, I stayed at his parents' house on a visa waiver (twice x 89 days - October-December 2013 and February-April 2014) while waiting for his visa to Sweden. The question here is twofold:
a) Should we fill in my husband's parent's address several times? (i.e. September-May university address, June-August parents' address, September-May university address, June-August parents' address, etc.)
b) Should I fill in that I lived at his parents' house? I've understood that it is important to make it clear that I did not live in the US while I was there on the visa waiver, but I have also read that it's important to state facts as facts, so I am not sure which rule of thumb to abide to! I was registered as living in Sweden during this time and was in Sweden for a month between the two periods.
3. Finally, the employment history. Am I right in understanding that being a student is not an occupation and that one should enter "N/A" or "unemployed" for the times we weren't employed?
