What to send?

I just spoke to my fiancé (the one who's petitioning for me) and he told me he has sent the documents to the CSC. I know the CSC is taking a long time but we don't have a choice as he lives in Idaho.

The thing is, he sent the petition through We The People because the last time we tried to file it ourselves the documents were lost and never reached the service center, and we did not know this over the course of more than half a year.

However, he tells me that all he had to send as told by the person over at We The People was the I-129F form, that's it, and that's what he did. No G-325A or whatever, nothing. No letter of intent, no evidence to support our case, just the I-129F. I was surprised, because he didn't send me anything to sign, like my biographical information or a letter of intent to marry him before he sent the documents to be filed.

At this point, I'm confused.

How is a case going to be built from NOTHING?

Ouch...Only the I-129F document? That will only generate a rejected submission or endless RFE's.

You need to begin the process again. I suggest you contact a competent immigration attorney for your next filing.

Well I have to tell you the same thing happend to us in the beginning.

My husband forgot to submit my G325a,but they mailed it back.

Thats what will probably happen in your case too.

Tell your Fiance to read the instructions of the I-129F,it specificly states in there that the G325a is needed both from you and your fiance.

Also read the guides: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...mp;page=k1guide

You can email him that link and let him see for himself,he was mis-informed.

I'm not angry with him, I'm angry with the bloody people who CLAIMED they knew what the hell they were doing. We trusted them.

And knowing my guy he's too trusting and nice. He probably bought everything she said to him. He didn't even ASK if there was enough information or if that was really all, he just went with it. If I were there I would have bloody flipped the bloody table she bloody sits at and demand answers.

But I'm not there to do so.

Right now I feel like fricking breaking something.

I don't want to be screwed over again, I don't know if I can handle it.

I understand that its frustrating,it is hard enough being away from your partner as it is.

You will get an RFE and then you can re-subit the papers.

I understand, but that is not really the point.

To be sent an RFE, have some of the information sent to me and then sent back when in proper order, and then sent AGAIN to the USCIS seems like a lot of unnecessary work that could have been done BEFORE filing. The problem could have been eradicated before it even started.

It's already taken enough time as it is.

Furthermore, we're filing with the CSC which means that it'll probably take EVEN longer, with no guarantee that the bloody documents won't get lost in transit.

If it doesn't get lost, it gets delayed.

One more day of my life I don't get to be with my guy.

Well thats what your gonna have to put up with,it takes time.

Next time you just know better to submit your papers properly ;)

The thing is, we got someone to compile our documents for us. They're supposed to help alleviate the problems, not cause them.

We The People

However, THEY were the ones that did NOT submit the papers properly, unbeknown to us.

It's not just the other people's fault. Your putting the trust in them without doing enough research means you made an error - and yes, It's easy to make an error in judging people's competency. I took a look at the site and it seems to be more geared towards divorces, wills and changing names etc. - probably a guy in a garage using computer forms that he fills out. It doesn't look like an Immigration Specialist even from its website.

So do not waste your time ranting and raving - fill out the G325a, get your passport pictures and mail them to your fiancee to start the package - use Visa Journey and you don't even have to pay a penny. You have learned a lesson in the results of not doing enough research - you should use this experience the next time you book a flight, a vacation, go to a doctor, a dentist, an accountant, a lawyer, a car repair shop etc. - its one of the life's lessons that will help you all your life - asking people, neighbors, friends and asking the advertisers themselves about what they have done and checking with their refrences.

You are very lucky this happened now, before it did any real harm - it will make you a better, stronger person if you choose to be one. Good Luck

Well then hopefully you have learned your lesson.

In the future you should not blame others,if you would of looked into the the process yourself/done it yourself then this would not of happend.

As you've learned (the hard way), not all professionals know what they are doing. These people charge for services NOT rendered. I would request a refund (SERIOUSLY), then read the K-1 GUIDE and do it yourselves, saving money, time, and future headaches. You can use that money for a nice trip to see each other while you're waiting.

Be sure to FedEx your documents with everything enclosed, that way you know they received it via tracking system. After a week or so you should receive copy/ies of NOA1. Include your I-29F, both G325s originally signed, a check for $455 or check to see if the amount has been updated..(I don't think so but check anyway), and a letter of intent to marry with a brief summary of how and where you met specifying dates etc. If you are enclosing photos with your petition, write the dates on the back of the photos unless they are clearly post marked with the date. Also include all other evidence to avoid obvious RFEs.

I know it must be frustrating but we all are frustrated with the USCIS telling us one thing and really it's another..... we are also with CSC so I know your pain!! I wish you the best of luck.

Wow that totally bites. You will get endless RFE's or just a plain and simple rejection for sure. You need all the supporting documentation for the case to be reviewed. You definately probably need and immigration attorney now. Someone who will intercede for you. Man I hope you guys get this worked out. Seems like you have already waited a long time for nothing. Im sorry :blush:

Wow.

If it's sent back to you (which is very likely) Mail everything back again and follow the Guides here at VJ so you have all the documents required.

Mail them express post with tracking and signature upon delivery.

It's a very easy process that you two can do together...read everything over and stay organized.

So frustrating. Sorry this has been a much harder road for you than it needed to be.

Best of luck to you always.
