Go to example forms

http://www.visajourney.com/content/examples, under the K-1 visa related form is an example for the "letter of intend".

That's what we used when we applied. We filled in our personal information, one for me and one for my fiance, printed it out and that was it.

Your info pane is empty and you have no timeline -- it'd be helpful if you filled those out.

But since you are asking about a Letter of Intent I'll assume you are at the pre-submission stage...

You are describing a Letter of Intent to Live in the U.S., when in fact all you need is a Letter of Intent to Marry -- from both you and your fiancée. Same document, printed twice, names interchanged, and signed. Easy.

Keep in mind the purpose of the initial K-1 petition to the USCIS is to prove you have met at least once in the last two years, and that there is reasonable evidence of a bona fide relationship. Not where you live.

Question is, do you really think it is a good idea for your newly-arrived fiancée to be living in California, separate from you, for any length of time, while you are supposed to be developing evidence of a legitimate and bona fide relationship in preparation for the AOS submission?

Technically, if you marry within the 90-days and move her in to your Washington residence you'd be fine, but what is the reason for her not coming to you directly? You might be able to explain it away, but I'd personally not go that route. You would develop a much more solid case if she did arrive in Washington directly.

Just my opinion.

Your saying a lot of unnecessary information. If this is the "Fiance Letter of Intent to Marry" you are planning on sending with your I129F petition then just state the simple facts. Below is an example.

Fiancé Letter of Intent

[Your Name]

xxxx Brierwood Drive

Erie, PA. 165xx USA

United States Department of Homeland Security

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

Vermont Service Center (use address of your service center)

Attn: I-129F

75 Lower Weldon Street

St. Albans, VT 05479-0001


Dear Sir or Madam:

I, [Petitioners Name], do hereby state that I am legally able and willing to marry [beneficiaries Name], and intend to do so within 90 days of her arrival into the US using the K-1 visa and I do so out of love.

Yours truly,



When you get to the consulate phase your fiancee will complete a DS-230 Application for immigrant visa and alien registration. On that form question 10 will ask for the permanent residence where she will intend to live, if known, including the name of a person who curetnly lives there. You can worry about that when the time comes to complete that form.

Maybe by then you will have an apartment or place of your own (in preparation for your finacees arrival and your marriage). Just throwing some ideas out there.

Keep in mind that once you submit paperwork with your address, you will be required to keep it updated in the event that you move.

For now, I'd focus on the tasks at hand and not try to overthink things.
