G235A Questions

Hi everyone.

First I'd like to say that this site is a treasure trove of information. I've been lurking mostly, but my fiance and I will be talking to his parents soon (to be co-sponsors, he's the US Citizen and I'm the beneficiary from Canada) and I'm filling out some of the forms he'll need from me. I have a few questions about the G-235A. Onto business:

1) Under 'Applicant's residence last five years', I've moved a lot and have come back to my parents' house, do I need to list all the times I've been back, so as not to leave gaps in time? Because it'll look like this, starting from 2007 -> Parents' house -> Apartment -> Parents' house -> Different apartment -> Parents' house. Or should I only list the different residences once? Lol, seems like a silly question, I'm sorry, but I just want to make sure I do this right.

2) Also, a question for both the applicant's residence and 'full address' of employer, I add the city, province and postal code, as well as the street address right? Because adding the name of the employer and the full address won't fit, so I need to put 'See attachment' in that line, right?

3) For 'applicant's employment last five years', in 2007 I had two jobs, one for a week if that and one for about a month before I quit and moved again. Even though I wasn't there for very long, should I add them anyway? That would equal six lines for that section, can I just add one of them or do I need to add both and put the extra on another attachment? Lol, I'm sounding a little paranoid.

4) For 'last occupation abroad if not shown above', I would just put 'none' or leave it blank? I have not worked or went to school in the States.

And finally, to add to the paranoia, 5) At the bottom of the page, it says I have to print my name and Alien Registration Number in boxes below. Do they mean type it out or print out the page and write my name? But I don't have an Alien Registration Number? Leave it blank, write 'none', write 'N/A'?

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, I'll greatly appreciate any and all replies!! <3 :) And I guarantee I'll be back, haha.

My take is to just list each time you went back to your parents' house for, as you say, continuity. You could list each residence once on the form itself and then address the time gaps on a supplemental sheet.

2) Also, a question for both the applicant's residence and 'full address' of employer, I add the city, province and postal code, as well as the street address right? Because adding the name of the employer and the full address won't fit, so I need to put 'See attachment' in that line, right?

Correct.

3) For 'applicant's employment last five years', in 2007 I had two jobs, one for a week if that and one for about a month before I quit and moved again. Even though I wasn't there for very long, should I add them anyway? That would equal six lines for that section, can I just add one of them or do I need to add both and put the extra on another attachment? Lol, I'm sounding a little paranoid.

My train of thought is to list everything, regardless of how long you were there.

4) For 'last occupation abroad if not shown above', I would just put 'none' or leave it blank? I have not worked or went to school in the States.

I intend to put "see above" in this section on the form for my wife-to-be.

And finally, to add to the paranoia, 5) At the bottom of the page, it says I have to print my name and Alien Registration Number in boxes below. Do they mean type it out or print out the page and write my name? But I don't have an Alien Registration Number? Leave it blank, write 'none', write 'N/A'?

Since you do not have an Alien Registration Number, "none" would be the word to write.

I actually have another question about the G325A.

I presently work at a Shell gas station, and the name is just numbers and my province. A bookstore job I had, on my T4 the full name and address are completely different. Would I put the full name and address I see on my T4 or for the exact place I worked at?
