G-325a for K-1 visa Packet..

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just checked the G-325a form and it is 1 page long with 1 page of instructions.

I need to fill one out and sign it and my fiancee needs to fill her own one out and sign it.

Why is everyone mentioning multiple copies? When I send in my packet should it just be 1 copy of mine and 1 copy of my fiancess? Or multiple copies of mine and multiple copies of my fiancees?

Thanks!

Yes just one from each of you. Maybe you are referring to advice to keep a copy of the entire petition so you have a record if needed for your own reference or in case something goes missing.


Mar 2011 - After 5mths denied for lost docs - Attempts to follow up failed. Mar 18 2012 - I-129F sent - No sign of NOA1 but they have banked the check...Jul 24 - Update - USCIS has located our file
Infopass Apt - they sorted through everything - our 2011 and 2012 file keep getting mixed up - getting us a Case# (still waiting) Dec- Infopass Appt- expecting to get a case # in about a week ..Still no Case number

Mar 2013 Infopass - advised file was in a box somewhere,and it would be quicker for us to refile. Life gets in the way... New petition submitted July 2014 .

You might be looking at older posts. I believe older petitions required 4 copies, but the process now only requires 1 for each the petitioner and beneficiary.

Great.

So just one copy for me and one for my fiancee.

If I am currently living outside of the US, but want the mail and notifications to go to the US to my parents house, should I put down my parents US address for present living address? Or my address in Mexico?

Thanks Again..

Right. One copy is all that is needed. Make copies of everything for yourself though. The multiple copy thing is outdated information.

I believe this is a matter for the I-129F rather than the G-325A. The G-325A only asks about the applicant's residence address for the last 5 years. There, you would put your physical address. I think you would put your mailing address in the US on the I-129F.

That's right. The address on the I-129F is where they will mail their correspondence. That can be your parents' address.

So when fill out the I-129F Part A info about you......

This is the place to put my US address (parents house). This will be the main contact address.

When filling out the G-325a it is ok to put my address here in mexico for current address?

There will no be any red flags for different addresses on the two forms?

Thanks..

No, it's not a problem. The address on the I-129F can be a mailing address, even a P.O. Box, separate from your physical address.

I have a question, though. What address are you using for question 14?

I was planning on using my parents US address. It is the last US address I lived as well. Is that a problem?

No. Not a problem at all. I was thinking if you had yet another address for line 14, you may want to include an explanation. But if it's the same address, it'll be fine.
