Quick Questions

Hello Everyone!

I've been visiting visajourney for a month or so now as I familiarize myself with the whole K1 process. I've prepared pretty much all the materials and am just gathering the last few items together. I have a few questions:

1) I've heard people see this document has to be notarized, that document doesn't have to be notarized, etc. But it seems like everyone contradicts everyone else. For this initial petion (I-129F, G325A, other evidence) petition, what if anything has to be notarized??

2) My fiance and I did not meet through any sort of agency at all. I met her on a train in March when I was still in China. In filling out the I-129F, I indicated this. Will we still be affected by IMBRA?

3) Yes, it seems like everything is being sent from the Nebraska service center to California. I'm from Milwaukee, WI, and Nebraska is my service center, am I still suppose to send it there or send it directly to California?? I assume still send it to Nebraska, but just checking.

I've had a busy day, but I'll share our story will everyone in due time. Thank you all for the help you've already been!! :)

1. Nothing in the first package needs to be notarized.

2. You will, inasmuch you'll have to answer the questions about it contained in the form. Also, IMBRA has to do with multiple petitions filed within a short period of time, not only marriage brokers and convictions.

3. You're supposed to send it to the address indicated on the I129f. So... check it again. If it says Nebraska, that's where you're supposed to send it to. They'll take care of the transfer. :)

so for question 19 on the I-129F, if I answer no, is that enough?? Or do I need to supply information/evidence/a statement saying neither of us has been involved with the law, explicitly say neither has ever been married, explicitly say we met on a train, etc?

okay, thanks for the quick replies. i appreciate it very much!!

You'll have to explain and describe the circumstances under which you and your fiance have met in person within the last 2 years on question 18. You'll also have to provide evidence of such meeting.

If you haven't met through a marriage broker, just check NO and add N/A in the box below. For the conviction part (Part C - 2) just check those that apply. If none, don't check anything.

Be sure to check the example forms here: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...p;page=examples

Feel free to ask any other questions you may have :)
