Hello everyone,

Preparing to file for my 129F for a K1 visa now. still scrambling to get all my documents together while trying to keep my fiance calm. I do have a few questions I was hoping you guys would be able to help me with. I've read the Guides on this forum, but the fiance have read on the Chinese forums that I also need to submit the Beneficiary's birth certificate, the applicant and beneficiary's account of how your relationship developed, and some of the record for phone conversations(I saw on the guide specifically stating this is pretty much useless), in addition to everything listed on the guide here. I'm just wanna make sure that this isn't something specific to filing K1 for a Chinese beneficiary. Any feedback you guys have will be great.

Thx for the links, but my fiance and I are more concerned with the discrepancies in the guides. The chinese forums she look at, which I personally have less faith in do seem to all say the same thing. so I have to be thorough and see if anyone on here filed for a beneficiary in China.

Which "chinese forum" are you referring to? Anyone, including myself, in the VJ chinese subforum will tell you to follow and read the K1 guide. With your I-129F application, you will submit a copy (front and back) of your (petitioner) birth certificate OR all pages of your USC passport. Keep asking questions, there are a lot of good people here to answer. :thumbs:

- I-129F Application

- I-129F Supplement: Attachment 1 - Question 6 - Marital Status: Proof of Divorce.

- I-129F Supplement: Attachment 2 - Question 18 - Explanation of meeting in person.

- I-129F Supplement: Attachment 3 - Proof of having met in person in the past two years.

- I-129F Supplement: Attachment 4 - Statement of evolution of ongoing relationship.

- I-129F Supplement: Attachment 5 - Letter certifying intent to marry; one each signed (Petitioner and Beneficiary)

- I-129F Supplement: Attachment 6 - Birth certificate/US Passport. (Petitioner)

- G-325A and passport style photo in plastic bag (Petitioner)

beneficiary's account of how your relationship developed,

This is called an evolution of relationship letter, and it's ALWAYS done by the PETITIONER (USC, usually YOU ) . It will be looked at , with scrutiny, by a VO on Interview Day (if supplied on Interview Day ) or doing the casefile review process at GUZ, prior to interview day, IFF you supplied it with the petition submittal.

If you don't include it with initial petition submittal , at least have it ready for interview day.

Some folk go into the GUZ Consulate Office for ACS, have the EOR letter NOTARIZED in GUZ. Many times the ConOff doing the notary work will be the IO on the interview day.

Beneficiary's birth certificate - as I recall - a COPY is sufficient. She'll need to supply you with a Chinese/English Notarial Translation of the b/c - usually called a WHITE BOOK. At this stage, petition submittal, a COPY is fine. The original will be gathered up on Interview Day by a Document Screener.

record of phone conversations - eh - not the transcribed to text versions - but CALL DETAIL RECORDS from your phone service provider. These are optional, and are used to prove that you've remained in contact with her. Other things work, also - chat logs, chat history logs, emails, postal mails.

Ask her if she's reading through the 001 forum. If that's the case, don't sweat it - about 80 percent of the info there is 2nd hand, 3rd party, rumour, mixed with innuendo... The other 20 percent is usually 'direct experience' and 'cold hard facts'.

GOOD LUCK !
