Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My fiance applied I-129f last year for the 1st time, he just sent I-129f and the fee, USCIS denied our case because my fiance didn't send any evidence, we never got RFE. Then we decided to re-submit I-129f and got approve. I'm waiting for interview. So, I'm now filling form DS-156, and there are a few questions that I'm not sure which answer I should mark, please help me.

#31. Have you ever been refused a U.S visa? When/where/what type?

#35. Has anyone ever filed an immigrant visa petition on your behalf?

Thank you

#31. If you were never denied, as an example, a student or tourist visa in the past, then the answer is no. The first 129 never resulted in a visa.

#35. Yes. He filed and was denied on the first 129 Petition. They will have a record of this.

I do not remember if there is room for an explanation, but if not, I would use a separate piece of paper and simply say that the current petitioner submitted a 129 on (date) and was denied due to incomplete paperwork but was subsequently approved when the second petition was submitted correctly.
