I had the same question.

The advice from the guy who helped me for a very small fee was the same.

You've got to be accurate and leave nothing of question and question integrity.

I had a gap last year of 7 months. Consulting work and other jobs can have periods of waiting for work to come in so it's not unusual.

I just got the approval like others did in just about 2 months from the seemingly backed up SC, the CSC.

If you can't get everything on the same page, on the last line put "SEE ADDENDUM" inserting in the middle of the phrase what that section is. I don't have the form in front of me.

Make sure you don't do like I did and left off both addenda pages!!

I did discover it and sent immediately a second USPS packet with cover letter asking them to put it with the first.

Both were logged in via USPS tracking the same day and I must assume they did combine successfully.

I sweated bullets about this for the whole waiting period -- enough for nightmares!

My suggestion is after you've assembled, even though you want to rush it out -- don't!

Put it aside for at least a day and come back with a critical eye.

Also, you can draw up your own check list to check off if you've actually done what you think you've done or were supposed to do. :thumbs:

There are only two things that one really has to worry about with the G-325A

- original signatures and

- don't forget to include it.

As long as it's there and it's signed, it's OK.


In the employment history section is it essential to fill in history for a full 5 years and is it a problem if there is a gap in the history? In our case a year long gap?

I have noted RFE's for gaps in employment or residence timeframes.....so to be on the safe side, do not leave gaps. Depending on the adjudicator they can be #######. Not worth the risk in my book.

Larry and Maria,

As far as consulting goes, whether waiting for the next assignment or not one is still in the business of consulting. One does not have to list each assignment. I showed my work as a consultant for a period of 4 years on my G-325A, but was only had assignments to perform covering maybe 2-1/2 years of that period (which is why I'm no longer a consultant).

Working for a temp agency would be similar - show the time you're registered with the agency, not each individual job the agency sent you on.

The G-325A is not a significant part of the petition package. The history of it that I've heard, from immigratino attornies, is that it's no longer in use for the purposes that it originally was and no one knows why it's still in use for the visa petitions. It's the appendix of immigration process - probably served a purpose at one time but nobody know what. As long as it's submitted and properly signed it doesn't get much scrutiny.

Despite numerous posts from people who report making errors on the G-345A I've never read a post that someone was RFE'd for anything other than signature issues. Maybe a few RFE posts from people who submitted only 1 page or 2 pages (G-325) rather than 4, but those are in contrast to posts by people who submitted only 1 page and did not get an RFE.


.... Consulting work and other jobs can have periods of waiting for work to come in so it's not unusual.



I have not, but I expect that you read far more posts than I do so I accept what you say.

In any case I agree - don't leave gaps. Leaving a gap for residence would be hard to do in any event - one is always living somewhere. Gaps in employment are easily and appropriately avoided by periods of schooling, unemployment, or retirement.
