Hello,

I am sitting here in Argentina filling out the 129F form with my Fiance. I am leaving for the US on Monday and wont see him again until he arrives to the US to get married! We just want to make sure we are doing everything correct while we are together..

I have several questions:

1. At this time, is the only paperwork we need to send is 129F, and the Fiance intent to start our VJ?

2. Do We need to send the G325 at this time or later?

3. If I was married prior and that person was granted a green card, but was NOT brought over on a K1 visa, do I need to state that in section 11.

4. We have just spend the year traveling around the world, should we put our residence as our "home" address the one we had before leaving? Since we traveled we didnt have any jobs.

5. Will having a laps of residence hurt us?

6. How much money do I need to make in the US to be able to qualify?

Thank you so much for any info you can give us. We are sitting here reading all the websites and it can be scary as it says if you mess up a form you can double your waiting time!!

Thank you,

Thank you,

Go to USCIS.gov and download and study the I-129F instructions. You'll find your answers there as well as much more important information.

1. At this time, is the only paperwork we need to send is 129F, and the Fiance intent to start our VJ?

Read the Kl guides (link at the top of the page). You have considerably more documents to submit than simply the I-129F and letters of intent.

2. Do We need to send the G325 at this time or later?

You need to send two G-325A's with the petition; one for the beneficiary (signed by the beneficiary), and one for the petitioner (signed by the petitioner).

3. If I was married prior and that person was granted a green card, but was NOT brought over on a K1 visa, do I need to state that in section 11.

No. Question 11 is asking if you've ever filed another I-129F.

4. We have just spend the year traveling around the world, should we put our residence as our "home" address the one we had before leaving? Since we traveled we didnt have any jobs.

For the petitioner's address, you should list the address in the US where you want USCIS to send correspondence. USCIS won't send correspondence to a petitioner abroad. For the beneficiary's address, you should list her address in her home country where she will interview.

5. Will having a laps of residence hurt us?

No.

6. How much money do I need to make in the US to be able to qualify?

It depends on how many people you will be supporting. If it's only you and your fiancee, then you currently need $18,212 per year in income (or assets to make up the shortage) in order to qualify as her sponsor. If you don't qualify, you'll need a co-sponsor who does.

Thank you ALL so much for all of your replies! I just want to do it right, and file the darn thing!!

I have downloaded LOTS of sheets, they are sitting in front of me and I am going through them as I fill out the paperwork.

Just ONE last qustion for now....

On the question about previous marriages. I was married before to a foreigner, he was in the US when we met and married. He had to file for an adjustment of status, but I didnt bring him over to the US on a K1 or K3 Visa.

This is the exact question-

11. Have you ever filed for this or any other alien fiancé(e)

or husband/wife before?

Yes No

If "Yes," give name of all aliens, place and date of filing,

A# and result. (Attached additional sheets as necessary.)

Was he an alien because he has a green card now?

THANK YOU!

You answer yes. You filed an I-130 petition for your former spouse. Then give the name, place, date of filing, A# and result, as requested. If you don't know the A# indicate A#unknown. The result was LPR status.
