Letter of intent: signature & printed name underneath

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The example letter of intent says to print our names under our signatures. Should we do this by hand, or type the names on the computer under the area where the signatures will be before we generate the paper copies?

I assumed that I should type it into the electronic document, and he assumed that he should use a pen, which is when I realized that I had no idea which was correct.

I don't think it matters much. If it can help you, we typed our names in the electronic letters, printed them, and we signed with a pen...

Follow the example forms. What's so hard about that?

It's proper business form to print your name beneath a signature, many signatures are illegible.

Apparently when people begin the immigration process they forget they have brain cells. They somehow think that an RFE will be issued if they forget to capitalize a letter, miss a comma or a period, misspell a word, use blue ink instead of black, use black ink instead of blue, use red ink instead of black or blue, use a combination of computer type and handwritten replies, so on and so on and so on.


YMMV

Was it really necessary to come into a thread where a question was clearly and considerately asked and answered, and everyone involved had moved on, and say something like this?

Even having only been here a few weeks, I've already seen some of the same questions asked multiple times, but if seeing such a thing bothers you so much that you feel the need to be snarky, maybe the problem is not with the askers (who are, after all, making use of this site for its intended purpose) but with the readers for deliberately exposing themselves to stimuli guaranteed to make them angry.

Because each embassy has its own quirks, we each had it typed on the top half and then handwrote it exactly the same below that and signed them. My fiance did it in both English and Spanish. This is probably overkill, but then again, since the folks that made all the decisions about our paperwork were faceless and us without any opportunity ever to question or ask about anything from them, overkill is often a good thing here (as long as it is not hundreds of pages of volume, that is!).

Before the embassy interview, I sent him another to take with him stating "It is STILL my intent..."

Kelly,

You have to send many original documents. Because you are using originals of other things, why don't you do the same with this. It is just as easy to print this 3 times (one to send and 2 back up copies). If you have already sent something, why would you then scan it? Scan it to what? Your computer? Fax it? I am completely unclear on what you are asking. Before posting more questions that seem to indicate that you are freaking out (example: ????????????????????????????????????), try reading the guides and hang out here a couple of weeks reading different posts/threads. The common questions seem to be re-asked twice a week from people who haven't bothered to just look over the site or read through the latest threads. Once you have an idea of what you are doing with a visa application, you'll be better able to ask questions that pertain to your specific situation. It might be good to look up country-specific information, too. Some embassies are monsters.

"Legible" is the criteria. It can be hand written OR typed or any combination thereof as long as it is legible.

It is not necessary to print the name under the signature if the name is listed at the top of the page. Signatures are not always (or even usually) legible so it is best to print the name also somewhere on the document.

Printing under the signature is a well accepted standard form of business letter presetation, it is not a requirement for the petition. Sign with a pen, yes. They state to use black ink, I used blue.

They state to use black ink, I used blue.

I was required to take a legal issues class about a million years ago. We were taught to always use ink that is not the same color as the rest of the document--navy blue or dark gray or different in some way, or, yes, blue since most people making copies don't bother making color copies. (Pressing the paper enough to dent it is good, too.) If it is your habit to do this always on any legal document from a check to forms to whatever, this could come in very handy sometime in the future. (I really, really doubt it ever would for immigration, though.)
