Help with packet three

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Just so you all know first off I am NOT the USC I AM the beneficiary.

So I am thinking you are going to be hearing a lot from me here since i just received packet three and am trying to do this all correctly.

Ok so my question is I am currently filling out the DS-230 Part 1 form so I can fax it off tomorrow. Now every line that asks questions about my fiance is calling him my spouse? He is not my spouse yet should I just disregard that and fill in his information there?

If you are talking about question 14, 15, 16, 17, No, you are a fiancee. The only way you can be a fiancee is if you are UNMARRIED in terms of an I-129F. You have no spouse, leave it blank or NONE.

Ok thank you!

Also the question that says state all residences you have lived at for at least six months since you were sixteen.

Now I moved around alot but was never in one place for longer than six months. Do i just completely leave those places out?

You can maybe put in one line for "Various Addresses, never more than 6 months", to fill in the gap between more stable residences. Or just leave it blank. Either way, you'll be explaining it verbally to the immigration officer at your interview. You won't get in trouble for following the literal instructions and just skipping over the period of time when you moved around a lot, but IO's usually don't like to see gaps in chronological chart questions like this.

See that is exactly what I was thinking. I figured it might look bad not putting down anything.

Maybe I should just fill in every place i have lived since I was 16 even those that were not longer than six months. It wont be a bunch since I am only 21.

Sorry I have another question on this one.

It asks for all previous visits to the US.

Now I took a family vacation to LA quite a few years ago.

Do they mean the visits to see fiance or just every single time you have been to the states?

Part Two is an Immigrant Visa Application. You're applying for a K-1, which is a non-immigrant visa. Instead of the DS-230 Part 2, you'll do the DS-156 and 156K, or the DS-160, depending on which consulate you're applying at. The DS-156 is the non-immigrant visa application, and the DS-156K is the Fiance visa specific extension to it.

Do the instructions for your Consulate say to Fax DS-230 Part 1. DS-230 Part 1 needs to be signed with an original signature for the Consular officer. It should not be faxed unless the consulate instructions are telling you to do so.

We were a totally differnt Country and Consulate but my fiancee faxed her DS-230 Part 1 as it was an option listed and much better than mailing (always worry about mailing in Vietnam :wacko: ). She included a cover letter with the fax with the case number and both her name, address, DOB as well as mine.

Also, we needed a copy for the interview so make sure you retain the original from your fax.

Not sure it all applies the same but some things to look out for.

Um...there is specific instructions on the DS-230 that say 'Do not write below the following line'.

It gets filled out and signed when you go for your interview. You sign it in front one of the consulate employees.
