LOI, Service Center & some portions of I-129F

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi to all :)

my fiancé and i are starting to fill out our forms and hopefully send the application by next week. i am wondering if i can use the sample for letter of intent here in VJ "as is" or do i need to add more why i want to marry him? i am not sure if it should be formal or not.

also i am not sure which service center i need to address my LOI. my fiancé lives in Utah and i checked USCIS, entered his zip code in the office locator and it said the service center should be in Nebraska. however, when i check the processing times it doesn't show any information about I-129F/K1 Application on the Nebraska Service Center processing time table. should it be addressed to California then?

and lastly i have a weird question about item #16 (if your fiancé's native alphabet uses other than roman letters) on form I-129F...i am filipina but filing our application here in Japan. should i use the Japanese kanji for my address as well?

thanks in advance. i just wanna make sure we are doing everything correctly to avoid delays.

hi to all :)

my fiancé and i are starting to fill out our forms and hopefully send the application by next week. i am wondering if i can use the sample for letter of intent here in VJ "as is" or do i need to add more why i want to marry him? i am not sure if it should be formal or not.

The letter of intent is designed to meet this requirement, described in the I-129F instructions:

Provide original statements from you and your fiancé(e) whom you plan to marry within 90 days of his or her admission, and copies of any evidence you wish to submit to establish your mutual intent;

The actual format of the statement is not specified. The VJ example letter of intent meets the requirements spelled out in the instructions. Feel free to re-word it any way you wish, as long as it meets the requirements of an original statement that establishes your intent to marry.

also i am not sure which service center i need to address my LOI. my fiancé lives in Utah and i checked USCIS, entered his zip code in the office locator and it said the service center should be in Nebraska. however, when i check the processing times it doesn't show any information about I-129F/K1 Application on the Nebraska Service Center processing time table. should it be addressed to California then?

The VJ example letters are designed in the form of a business letter, but it's not mandatory they be written that way. You can delete the addresses entirely, if you wish. It would still meet the requirements. Personally, I would simply address it to "USCIS" and leave it at that. If you really want, you can figure out which service center the petition will ultimately be sent to and enter the address of that service center, but it's really not necessary.

and lastly i have a weird question about item #16 (if your fiancé's native alphabet uses other than roman letters) on form I-129F...i am filipina but filing our application here in Japan. should i use the Japanese kanji for my address as well?

thanks in advance. i just wanna make sure we are doing everything correctly to avoid delays.

Enter your name in your own native alphabet. Enter your address in Kanji. That will help ensure that the packets from the consulate are delivered to the correct address.
