I-130 Queston 17 (I know, I know)

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I know it's been asked a lot, but I really need to make sure because of conflicting answers, sometimes even on different forum threads.

I am the US Citizen (petitioner), she the Canadian spouse living with me in the US (beneficiary). There are no children. Can I just get lots of affirmations that I, the US citizen husband should be listed on this question?

The Ilona Bray Nolo books says "leave blank".

This supposed immgration lawyer says leave blank because it's for other types of relatives, e.g., a brother or a sister, who might be married to someone other than the petitioner. http://www.justanswer.com/immigration-law/2975p-confused-question-17-i-130-my-wife-us-citizen.html

And one post here said I should put "N/A" on every line after my name. Can someone confirm this?

12/24/2010 I proposed. She accepted and stayed.

02/25/2011 Married!

03/19/2012 FINALLY submitted the AOS paperwork: I-130, I-485, I-765, etc.

03/23/2012 Received notification that USCIS has received everything.

03/26/2012 Biometrics Appointment Notice: April 23, 2012.

04/02/2012 NOA's received. Now we wait...

04/23/2012 Biometrics completed.

05/18/2012 EAD card mailed but not yet received.

06/06/2012 Rough interview but we think we're approved! Website says i485 status "Card Production".

06/12/2012 We received the "Welcome the United States" letters! Website says Green Card was mailed.

LIMBO: Green card lost in mail. Facing the possibility of paying hundreds in fees and basically repeating the entire process.

All good now! USPS lost it, then found it.

04/24/14 Back to VJ to get help with I-751, Removal of Conditions.

05/31/14 Mailed I-751 finally, with less than a week to deadline!

07/01/14 Biometrics

7/25/14 Approved for Removal of Conditions

It helps if you say what the question is. I don't have a I-130 laying around, so to help I'd need to look at a I-130. People are disinclined to do that much work ;)

Okay, so Q17 asks you to list the spouse and children of your relative. I put my name there, even though it was repetitive. I don't think it matters much in this case. But it seems to me, most transparently, that you should put the spouse of your relative, which is you.

AOS for my husband
