G-325a Question

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Timeline

I'm a truck driver. For a while, I was a long-haul driver who had sold as much as I could and put the rest of my belongings, except for what I needed on the truck with me, into storage. My home, for a time, was litteraly on 10 big rig wheels. These days, I'm running regional. All I do is from Chicago to Iowa and back. Now that I've begun my fiancee's visa journey, what would I put on the G-325a for the time that I lived in my truck? Would I put the dreaded "H" word of homeless? I guess, technically speaking I was homeless by choice. Or, would it be better to list that I was living in a semi and the dates that are associated with that period?

What were you using for a postal address during that time. Retired people wander the states all the time in rigs worth 2 times what your is and they aren't considered homeless.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

I was a leased-operator for one of the major reefer companies in this country. They handled all the plates, insurance (they were a self-insurer), permits, etc. My driver's license had just been renewed from getting my CDL; so that wasn't going to be an issue for a number of years. I had a post office box for the time I was a long-haul driver for them.

I would add a see attached and explain that you were employed in the real time transit industry and that your job gave you the opportunity to live in company provided mobile facilities. :innocent:

He owned the truck. A letter of explanation is fine but a PO box would be the address listed on the G325a. FYI, some people who live in "houses" only have a PO Box for an address. I once had a Route and Box address, where the "box" was three miles from my home. I suppose I could have listed the name of the ranch but it was a third of a county and fourteen miles from town on 8 miles of unpaved roads, the bulk of which were oilfield maintained private roads.

Pushbrk et al,

Thanks for the feedback. I wish I did own the truck. I would've purchased it given the chance (I had planned on it). I was leasing it with the option to purchase at the completion of the lease. Oh, well. That part doesn't matter, though. What does matter is that my question was addressed. Thank you all for your knowledge and wisdom in immigration matters. It's a pleasure to know you.
