G-325a Question~ What to fill in for...

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This is my first post as I am starting this journey with my fiancee to adjust her status from F-1 to PR after we get married. My fiancee is currently in the States on an F-1 Visa while working under the Optional Program.

Anyways, we are going to marry soon and will be concurrently filing the I-130 and I-485. I am a USC and realize that we both each have to file a G-325a form. Though the search button box helped (a little), I wanted a solid answer for my situation. So please, forgive me if this has been clearly stated many times before as I want this to be done right the first time through.

Question:

When they ask: "This form is submitted in connection with an applicant for: Naturalization, Status as Permanent Resident, or Other..."

Since I am the USC filing the I-130, my G-325a form I will check 'Other' and fill in "I-130."

For my fiancee filing her G-325a with her I-485, she will check "Status as Permanent Resident."

Am I correct?

Many thanks to all as this forum has been a life saver so far, and Happy New Years!

Hi and welcome to Visajourney,

yes, you are right, the US Citizen fills out the I-130 and mentions it in their Biographic G-325A

And for your spouse, she will enter AOS I-485 and if applicable also the application for Work Permit I-751,

if needed the Travel Permit, too. (I filed mine this way, except no travel permit)

Good luck on your immigration journey!!

It's free too if I file the I-751 and Travel Permit at the same time as I-485!?

Yep. The fee is $420 for the I-130 and $1070 for the I-485, the I-765, and the I-131 (it says it in the I-485 instructions).

FWIW, I think I put "in conjunction with status as PR" in that box even though I am the citizen. It might be wrong but it wasn't a problem. What you suggest sounds fine and probably more correct, but it won't make or break the application.


AOS for my husband
8/17/10: INTERVIEW DAY (day 123) APPROVED!!

ROC:
5/23/12: Sent out package
2/06/13: APPROVED!
