Letter of Intent..for K1 in Montreal?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I Was preparing a Letter of Intent and I was wondering is only one Letter of Intent Sufficient ?

what I mean by that is I'm the petitioner(USA, male) and Beneficiary(female) is in Canada interviewing soon in Montreal. I wrote a Letter of intent saying that I am legally free to marry fiance upon her arrival to the USA via K1 Visa. Truly yours, signed my name and printed name too.

Now does SHE(canada) also have to have a similiar letter saying SHE wants to marry me and is free to do so when she arrives to the USA?

It seems easy to do, and assuming you sent two with the original package, you might as well play it safe. For something that is such a small hassle as this, it's always a good idea to be over-prepared.

Yes, you both do need updated Letters of Intent to Marry within 90 days of her entering on the K-1 Visa. Signatures must be original so do not have her take scanned or faxed copies.

They should be addressed to the Department of State at the US Embassy or Consulate in (city where you will interview>.

Definitely does not hurt to be over-prepared

Good luck

Maybe the Consulates in Canada are more lenient about this. Most Packet 3's from various Consulates require both Petitioner and Beneficiary. Maybe they will ask Beneficiary at the interview if they still intend to marry Petitioner.

We sent both with our petition, and you need to state that you fully intend to marry within 90 days on entry...not just that you are free to marry...

How were the consulate officers in Montreal? nice? aggressive?

The woman at the window I had was really nice, the one the next window over was not so nice lol.. she was yelling at the couple beside me, not sure what it was about but it was a little nerve racking! The guy I got for the actual interview was nice too, he joked a lot and smiled a lot. It was very relaxed for me. The guards were kind of sterile... cut an dry not all that nice but I suppose they cant be to friendly with people as they are guards.

If you want a better overview of how they are, you should come and search the Canada forum for others' Consulate reviews. :) That's going to be your #1 sign to how the interview will go. From what I've heard, they're all pretty nice, like Inky said. That's probably one of the few things I'm not worried about when it comes time to go to our interview. :thumbs:
