IR-1 questions

Hi all.

Finally, I have some time to finish this up(thank God)and have a couple more questions. I tried a search but found nothing. Quick rundown: The I-130 is for my wife of 2+ years together and a croba for our 2 yr old daughter.

Under section C, Question 21 states;

21. If filing for your husband/wife, give last address at which you lived together. (Include street, city, province, if any, and country):

Well, the thing is that we've never really lived together for more than a few weeks and that's when I'm visiting. If I write her address than that might indicate that I live over there when I don't, wouldn't it? I know it says LIVED together(past tense)so maybe not. But they also want the dates of when you were living together. Should I just answer with an N/A or NONE, or? I just don't want any contradictions or confusion, but at the same time I get the feeling they want some kind of answer.

Next question:

Section D Question 1;

1. If separate petitions are also being submitted for other relatives, give names of each and relationship.

My current answer is; A CROBA will be filied for HER NAME. Relationship-Daughter.

Is a CROBA a form of petition? I suppose it wouldn't hurt to have it like this. Or are they specifically looking other I-130's in the process? Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Gary

CRBA is not a petition. Your daughter is a US citizen and therefore, she doesn't need to be petitioned.

I added an attachment, and explained that we had not legally resided together, that he lived in Canada, and I lived in the US, when we met, and that it was only during the visits (and listed them) that we were able to be together. Was probably overkill, but I would rather they have too much ino, than not enough.

<deleted stuff>

Is a CROBA a form of petition? I suppose it wouldn't hurt to have it like this. Or are they specifically looking other I-130's in the process? Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Gary

Regarding your child, I would read this:

http://www.travel.state.gov/law/info/overseas/overseas_703.html

Specifically the last line in the last paragraph:

"Under law, the Consular Report of Birth and the Certificate of Citizenship are equally acceptable as proof of citizenship."

Which in my eyes means that your child is already free to come into the US without any additional petitions, just make sure you have the FS-240 form with you (that's the CROBA) when your child comes through immigration.

That said, it won't hurt to call the state department to verify. (http://www.travel.state.gov/about/contact/contact_4745.html)

Another thought: You may just be able to apply for a US Passport for your daughter at the consulate in the country where your daughter is currently living since she is a US Citizen according to the FS-240.

Hope this helps!

Mike

Ya, usually get the US Passport at Same Embassy/Consulate where you filed for CRBA. Good Luck !


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.
