Needing help with the G-325a (biographical) form...

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Réjean (Canadian fiancé) is here with me, and he leaves tonight at 8:30 pm. We're trying to get all our forms finalized to send in for the K1 visa, but we have a problem with one part of the G-325a form. Under the "Applicant's residents past five years" part, one of the cities will not fit in the space no matter if it is hand-written or typed. It's a city called "St-Jean-sur-Richelieu". He filled out and printed the forms while I was at work, and he put in the box the partial name of the city and thought it would be ok. Not quite, honey.

So, what should we do? Hand-write the whole name to the right side of that column? Attach an additional piece of paper to clarify? Will we have to reprint the forms and leave it blank with something like "See other page"? I have no idea what to do about this, and we really do not want this package sent back.

I know, we should have finalized this way earlier.

Also, his signature is more of a character than his name... is that going to pose an issue?

Thanks for your help!!! :)

Well, I'm new at this, but I did had the same problem, and as i did with the I-129f, I attached a continuation sheet, and in the space provided I put 'see attached continuation sheet' - I titled the continuations sheet "Continuation Sheet for G-325a for <name> Question <x>.

The only thing I did not do was sign the continuation sheet, which someone told me I sould have, and I'm not sure what they will do about that.

Thats my two cents, but I'm new here - just trying to help :)

Use an additional page to write any info that can not fit even with handwriting. Write down the items number on the additional sheet, then sign and date on the bottom of that sheet. I had to use an additional page of rmy I-130, but I did not sign it, yet it went through fine. However, I recommend you to sign and date on the additional page. Since a set of G-325A has total 4 pages, I would use microsoft word, type the info that does not fit, print 4 copies out, then sign and date it, attach each page with each G-325A page. He just needs to sign no matter what his signature is, as long as he uses the same signature.


I-130 Timeline with USCIS:

It took 92 days for I-130 to get approved from the filing date

NVC Process of I-130:

It took 78 days to complete the NVC process

Interview Process at The U.S. Embassy

Interview took 223 days from the I-130 filing date. Immigrant Visa was issued right after the interview

Necrotica,

Abbreviate. Viciously. Your fiance is probably correct, if you'd feel better run over into the Province column and abbreviate the Province name.

I don't think it matters much, I freely abbreviated names/addresses (from India so I don't think USCIS will understand the abbreviations either) and even I have to think to understand what I wrote then; so don't worry about it or if worried attach a separate shet. Good Luck

Thanks for all the help, everyone! What I ended up doing was putting "see attachment" in the City box and then affixing a sheet that said, "Attachment sheet for G-325a for section 'Applicant's residence last five years' due to lack of space in box: City: St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu". I had Réjean sign and date it. Now I'm wondering if I should highlight that part on the G-325a to make it more noticeable or if I should just leave it as it is.

I think what you have described is fully adequate.

Don't give USCIS too much to think about, that always spells trouble!! :lol:

Good luck in your process!!

Does anyone know the real name of Bangkok, Thailand? Its the longest name of a place in the world per the Guiness book of world records. Here is the name:

Krungthep Mahanakhon Bovorn Ratanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokpop Noparatratchathani Burirom Udomratchanivet Mahasathan Amornpiman Avatarnsathit Sakkathattiyavisnukarmprasit,

meaning the 'City of Angels'

Try that on a G-325!!!!

Correction on Bangkok....

. The name Bangkok (บางกอก (help·info)) now refers only to an old district on the Thonburi side of the river, but continues to be used to refer to the entire city by most foreigners.

Krung Thep, or Krung Thep Maha Nakhon (IPA: [kruŋtʰeːp mahaːnakʰon], กรุงเทพมหานคร (help·info)) is the abbreviation of the city's full ceremonial name Krung Thep Maha Nakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayutthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udom Ratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Phiman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanu Kamprasit (กรุงเทพมหานคร อมรรัตนโกสินทร์ มหินทรายุธยามหาดิลก ภพนพรัตน์ ราชธานีบุรีรมย์ อุดมราชนิเวศน์ มหาสถาน อมรพิมาน อวตารสถิต สักกะทัตติยะ วิษณุกรรมประสิทธิ์), (listen (help·info)), which means "The city of angels, the great city, the eternal jewel city, the impregnable city of God Indra, the grand capital of the world endowed with nine precious gems, the happy city, abounding in an enormous Royal Palace that resembles the heavenly abode where reigns the reincarnated god, a city given by Indra and built by Vishnukam." ....
