I have a question, first some background, My fiance came here a few weeks ago and we got married, we are filling out the paper work ( for the I130)and am wondering about the I-130. On the bottom right it asks if your relative, ie spouse is currently in the us. It goes on to ask for the I94or I95 form. My wife never received a form when she came across the border from canada. Do we need to worry about this? She is staying for a 6 months and is going back to wait for the iterview and medical. I want this process to go smoothly and want to prevent any delays.

Canadians are not given an I-94, especially if they say they are visiting.

"...My hair's mostly wind,

My eyes filled with grit

My skin's white then brown

My lips chapped and split

I've lain on the prairie and heard grasses sigh

I've stared at the vast open bowl of the sky

I've seen all the castles and faces in clouds

My home is the prairie and for that I am proud…

If You're not from the Prairie, you can't know my soul

You don't know our blizzards; you've not fought our cold

You can't know my mind, nor ever my heart

Unless deep within you there's somehow a part…

A part of these things that I've said that I know,

The wind, sky and earth, the storms and the snow.

Best say that you have - and then we'll be one,

For we will have shared that same blazing sun." - David Bouchard

Hi Rockgurl1965,

In answer to your question: Most of the time, Canadians don't receive I-94s or I-95s when visiting the USA, be it that Canada is a visa exempt country. So when you fill out the forms, just say that you're Canadian and no I-94 was issued to your fiance.

Now here's the funny part...I am a Canadian and when I came to the USA I got an I-94 issued for a 2 week visit (lol..along with 2 hours of interrogration, see my vj timeline for more info). And when I went for the AOS interview the immigration officer asked me: "How come you got an I-94 when you crossed the border, I thought they don't issue those to Canadians". To which I said and thought..."I don't know, you tell me, I'm not an immigration officer!" (or something along those lines)... :lol:

So yes, they are aware of the fact that most of the time Canadians don't get I-94s. In fact, if you are one of those that get I-94s (such as like I did before), it's more so because you were questioned at the border for some reason or other and they wanted you to return to Canada by a certain date, which is quite rare of a situation to happen.

In lieu of an I-94 though, if you can, keep and show the ticket stubs, iteneries of trips, and stuff like that, to show the immigration officers that your fiance did enter the USA at a certain date, in case they need to verify such with their records.

Lol..as for immigration going smoothly, I have yet to see that happen...But if you're lucky, you'll get a few breaks in between...Just make sure you have all the paperwork and evidence ready, and you should be ok there in making it go smooth as can be....

Hope this helps too. Good luck on your immigration journey too, and may it be smooth for you and your fiance.

I got issued an I-94 once, I spent 4 months in the US with J, and came back for some stuff I needed.. and I was planning to go to a training program for a month..... and I told them I was going to a school for a month so they pulled me over, interrogated me and gave me a return date. It sucked. This has nothing to do with the topic, really though.

The OP said they got married already. So not fiance.. I'm confused? don't mind me :whistle:
