I-129F package

hi... me and my Filipina fiance is still preparing the I-129F package... we decided not to get a lawyer(is it ok if we don't have one?), we both researched and carefully followed the steps, hope everything goes smoothly... just want to ask some questions from you guys since you're quite ahead of us... should the letter of intent to marry be notarized by a lawyer or a letter with our signatures enough? I saw an example from a friend who also processed K1, their letter of intent was an affidavit and was notarized(they had a lawyer, I just thought...maybe it was overly done...)

thank you so much for your help, looking forward to get this package ready by next week, thank you.

The letter of intent to marry in 90 days of your fiancee arrival doesn't have to be necessarily notarize. However it won't hurt you if you notarize it.

The Letter of Intent is not required to be Notorized. However, Any good Attourney would ask that the Petitioner Notarize that letter and not needed to be Notarized by the Attourney . The Original should be in the 129-F package. . Always have a Copy. It's about a $ 8.00 fee but shows good intent.

No need to notarize ANYTHING in the normal K-1 visa process. Its not required - It will not help in any way.

hi... congratulations... I see everything's going well with your application, can I ask something from everybody? we filed our I-129F at the Dallas Lockbox... (Texas Service Center) because they said if you live in the US that's the service center where you should file... seems like all the Filipina beneficiaries' filing location is at the California Service Center... have we sent our application at the correct service center? thank you... goodluck
