Congrats on your marriage :)

If you have questions, it's always best to read the guides at the top of the page. They're very logical and straightforward.

You have to file you I-130 and when you receive your NOA1, then you file the I129F. So no, don't file them at the same time because as the guide says, you have to include the NOA1 in the I129F.

It would make more sense for you to do 8 copies of the G325A, 2 photos and 2 sets of affadavits (if you are supplying any of the proof of a bona fide marriage) since you'll need them for both anyway, and send them to him in one go. Obviously FedEx type courier service is usually faster but more expensive. I don't think having the dates on the different sets of documents accompanying the 2 petitions matters.

ossa,

Just little advise from my side, I am not saying you should do this but consider twice before filing for k-3. The recent trend has shown us alot that filing I-130 alone gets priority over k-3 so think about it before you send I-129f to go with k-3 route.

Best of luck with your Journey. :thumbs:

first of all where is your husband filing from??? east coast or west coast? that will make a difference on your service center and the times. IF you're filing from the west coast and insha'allah you will notice it won't really matter what you file they typically go faster then the vermont service center. these days that is.

But this is what can happen you file both (i suggest leaving the dates blank and allow your husband to fill them in as he sends them) the I130 and the I129 and track them when they get approved you can follow the track once they are approved which way you want to go. I suggest you file first the I130 get your NAO1 then sending the I 129 with the copies as that typically goes faster for the K3 to start moving cause you already got the nao1 and paid for it. But that is up for debate i am sure.

when we got both approved and by the time we waited for the interview i followed both tracks until i got out interview date and to be honest it was only a month difference between his k3 interview date and his cr1 date. And to be honest the cr1 is typically a better visa because it allows you to have a SSN upon entry and to go get your drivers license when you're ready and the cost is typically $600 less for then the AOS.

K3 you will have to wait for EAD and AOS here but that is a month earlier I suggest you study both and you and your husband decide.

Good luck!

Thanks for Pming me let me know if you have other questions.

Forms are dated when signed. Just tell the truth, always. Never lie on a form or to an immigration official. If you keep this in mind throughout the process, the answers to such questions will become obvious.

Do not do 8 copies of the same G325a form because each set of four has a different stated purpose in one section. It's two sets of four.

Apologies, I didn't mean 8 copies of the first sheet. I've only ever seen them as 4 sheets on a pdf, each requiring a signature, so yes 2 sets of the 4 sheets.

And yes, date them when you sign them. It shouldn't matter that you compile the documentation for both petitions at the same time, it's a question of not submitting the I129F until you have the NOA1 from the I130. You're only talking about a few days for the NOA1 from filing...

thanks rajaa for you help, my husband is living in boston so i think our petition will go to vermont center :crying: which is really slow, i pray God that it will be forwarded to california center so it can go faster

we prefer to send both petitions and then choose later what way to go like you've done

i suggested to my husband to ask for his tax transcripts and all documents he will need to file the affidavit of support, do you think it's too early to gather those documents????

thankyou for your advice, i'll sign and date all the papers before sending them, my g-325a for both I-130 and I-129F will have the same date, i think it's not really a big deal

Hi Ossa

congrats for your wedding

for G325A of I129F you can prepare them already and send to your husband

as the others told you

in the purpose you can distinguish them putting I130 spouse vs K3 spouse

be careful with the numbering of pages 1 to 4, I got it wrong myself once

did you get it all the moroccan doc already translated?

Also you can send other doc to your husband already if he is able to handle without mixing up

it includes picture, a birth certificate for you with translation, your wedding certificate with translation

you can already prepare an indexing and put post its on it

for sending from France I used chronopost a lot but it is expensive

La Poste also has cheaper enveloppes for the world where documents get to the US in a week or less

I don't know about Morroco

thanks for advices, i have translated only the marriage certificate, do i need to send him also my birth certificate with its translation....???

i have also my police record, should i translate it and send it to him as well....????

i've been told that chronopost is cheaper than dhl and they take almost the same time so i'm intending to use it to send him the documents; for the moroccan poste it will take more than 10 days so not a good choice

if you have any other suggestions please help me

Hi Ossa

glad to help

I think you need to translate any foreign document you give, unless it has an international naming convention, like passports.

so yes you should most probably translate your birth certificate (unless it includes legends in English)

I had mine translated.

best thing i can suggest is have HIM worry with all this, have him come on here to read and follow the directions, i can never understand when the benef. is the one always doing the work, its HIS petition for you. There are certain parts you will be responsible for and signatures but let him do the controlling of the flow. I would do the cr1 thru vermont and hope it gets moved to calif

LIFE IS NOT THE WAY ITS SUPPOSED TO BE, ITS THE WAY IT IS

I MAY NOT BE WHERE I WANT TO BE BUT IM SURE NOT WHERE I WAS
