After staying up late to make an almost perfect I-129F packet, I went to the USPS Office in a thunderstorm before work. It felt good to finally send it off, but there's some things that I still wonder about.

  • The only writing I put on the postage label was USCIS, P.O. Box 660151, Dallas, TX 75266. I feel like I was missing something.
  • G-325A forms had work addresses hand-written in the small box but it was written small very small with two lines stacked on each other.
  • Used a blue pen.

As far as the address goes, that'll get it there.

I'm hoping they won't have a problem with the addresses or blue ink (I have a feeling it'll be fine), but if they end up sending it back, use a separate sheet for that item. That's what I had to do.

Blue ink is fine. There are often people getting RFEs for using blank ink because USCIS did not believe it was a real signature.

blank ink
Quite a typo from someone named Inky! :lol:

OP, you're fine, si man. Only thing that I might have done extra was to put "Original I-129F" on the label, too, but the people who open the envelope will figure that out.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

I agree that form G-325A for work history is way too short. I couldn't type in full addresses in. I had to abbreviate and also leave out spaces because I used adobe to input.

My fiancee only worked at one place in the last 5 years and only had 2 apartments in that time, so on hers I used 2 lines on the form for each address and made sure the dates lined up correctly.

Mine, though, forget it. Not even close to enough room. Had to use a separate sheet. But either way, they accepted it and sent it on for processing.

I don't think they make that big of a deal about this form. Technically they don't even need to be signed. The petitioner's signature on the I-129F is deemed sufficient and the beneficiary can sign at the interview.
