Questions on Fiance Letter of Intent

I reviewed the sample Fiance Letter of Intent on this VJ website - which essentially contains the following main body of text:

"I, (applicant’s or beneficiary’s name) , do hereby state that I am legally able and willing to marry (petitioner’s or beneficiary’s name), and intend to do so within 90 days of my arrival into the US using the K-1 visa."

Is this sample body sufficient for the purposes of the K1 visa? In your experience, is this example complete or are they looking for more than just this one line as intent to marry?

Also - does this document need to be notarized or stamped by some legal entity before it is sent out? Or do they simply want us to sign this document normally?

Finally, since both the US Citizen and the Fiance will have their own personal letter of intent - I assume that:

* The US Citizen will use his permanent address in the USA and the address of his USCIS service center

* The Fiance will use her permanent foreign country address and the address of her Embassy in the foreign country

Thanks !

It really wouldn't be on the VJ download section if it weren't something that works. It is as simple as you see there. Plain, matter-of-fact and simple.

Also - does this document need to be notarized or stamped by some legal entity before it is sent out? Or do they simply want us to sign this document normally?

Does not need to be notarized.

Finally, since both the US Citizen and the Fiance will have their own personal letter of intent - I assume that:

* The US Citizen will use his permanent address in the USA and the address of his USCIS service center

* The Fiance will use her permanent foreign country address and the address of her Embassy in the foreign country

You will both do this letter of intent twice. Once with the initial I-129f petition, and again for the Embassy/Consulate interview stage. So the address' should match the addressee (the example letter shows both addresses but you'd only use one, depending on what stage you're using it for.

Thanks !

Thanks - but I am a little confused about how to setup the addresses twice.

On the first set of Letter of Intents with the I-129F - do you place BOTH the petitioner's and the beneficiary's address at the top?

If yes, I assume this will mean you place BOTH addresses on the second set of Letter of Intents as well.

If no, I assume this will mean you FIRST use US Citizen Address (on the I-129F petition package), and then you use the Fiance's foreign address with the Interview materials.

Also, if one set of Letter of Intents will be submitted at the interview stage, will it need to have an updated date? That is, can we place the date of our Engagement (which will be this coming Saturday) on all the Letter of Intents with - or will they need an updated date when the Interview stage is approaching.

Worked for me

Also - does this document need to be notarized or stamped by some legal entity before it is sent out? Or do they simply want us to sign this document normally?

I did not.

Finally, since both the US Citizen and the Fiance will have their own personal letter of intent - I assume that:

* The US Citizen will use his permanent address in the USA and the address of his USCIS service center

* The Fiance will use her permanent foreign country address and the address of her Embassy in the foreign country

No, both are addressed to the service center. Each letter must have original signatures.

Thanks !

first letter of intent (one from each party) is required by the USCIS. A second letter of intent may not be required, as it is a consulate specific item

Yup so when the time comes, just do it so you're prepared regardless...

WE used that exact format and had no problem. First ones are addressed to VSC or CSC. Second ones will be addressed to the Consulate.

Whose address is places onto the First ones?

Will only the petitioner's address be placed onto the Petitioner's Intent to Marry form?

Will onnly the beneficiary's address be placed onto the Beneficiary's Intent to Marry form?

Or should both versions contain BOTH the petitioner's and the beneficiary's addresses at the top?

Thanks !

As clarification - what I mean to ask is that at the very top of the example Fiance Letter of Intent it says:

" (petitioner’s / beneficiary’s address) "

I am confused by the SLASH - Does this mean EITHER the petitioner's or the beneficiary's address depending on who is signing the form ?

Or does the SLASH mean to put BOTH the petitioners and beneficiarys address?

Copy the VJ letter, put in the appropriate names and dates (one for each of you) Sign it. Send it. We did this exactly. You do not need to list any addresses, you do that on the I-129f, but what you suggest is fine.

WE used that exact format and had no problem. First ones are addressed to VSC or CSC. Second ones will be addressed to the Consulate.

Put in the name and address appropriate to the person signing the letter. There will be ONE letter for EACH party.

It is a letter. Not a manned mission to the moon.

I presume if you can read this you know how to use a computer and a word processing prgram? Make ONE letter for YOU with YOUR address and name. Address it to the CSC if that is where you will send it. Print it. SIGN IT. Save it in your computer wherever you like. Now go back and change the name and address to your fiancee. PRINT IT. Save it in your computer. Have HER sign it.

Before you send anything to the USCIS make THREE copies of everything. One for you, one for her (YES give her a copy of everything) and one to send off just in case something is lost.
