Odd G-325A Question

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Mexico

Hey guys,

I'm very new to the I-129F process and I am working on filling out all the forms necessary in order to send the petition. As I fill out the G-325A form and I-129F form online, using Adobe Reader, if the information doesn't fit, it puts a little plus sign next to the slot and then when I print it, the plus sign is there. Does that ring a bell for anyone? For example, when it asks for my residence in the last five years, when I type in the year, for instance "1987" it does not fit on the line. Is that supposed to happen? And how can I fix it? I want to avoid having to hand-write all these forms. Also, when it asks for employers and addresses, do they want the complete address (including street number, city, zip code...) Thanks so much for your help! Let me know if I need to clarify my question!

Yep... Sounds familiar... I ran into similar problems, and later saw plenty of other VJ'ers encountering the same thing.

Type out the form, except where the space is too small (+), and hand-write those fields. :thumbs:

Hi Caity

I know exactly what you're talking about, it very much rings a bell. I HATE those stupid forms and got so aggravated that the federal government of the United States of America (yeh yeh yeh) couldn't make me a form that didn't have stupid little plus thingies!!! And also if you put in '2008' or whatever on something, I think the numeral space was originally made for 1990's sort of dates, which are slightly narrower, so that doesn't fit either. So then you're stuck with '0000' forever when you try to take it out so you can handwrite it in.

I did it the stupid way Caity. I tried for hours and days to fix the damn things, worried about having a mix of typed and handwritten forms, and finally stopped caring and just handwrote stuff in. BUT I know there's a different way to do it I read before, hopefully someone else can tell you :( I think it involved downloading the form in something other than Adobe or in a different format than PDF...but I don't know how to do that because I suck :(

On the employer's addresses, I put the whole thing, yes, and just attached a separate sheet. However, I have heard of people putting down just like..."Atlanta, GA," or that sort of thing, if they couldn't remember or find out the address. I really think this sort of thing depends on the pickiness of your adjudicator. I say better safe than sorry though.

Good luck :thumbs:

I included and extra sheet of paper with everything that wouldn't fit, itemized as to the line number. I think it says to do that in the directions? Good Luck!
