Hi VJ Members,

I've listed both of my children on my application form as requested. They are both over 21 and therefore not accompanying me to the US. Should i have included a side note to confirm that they wont be coming along or will the Vermont processors know this already from their dates of birth.

I'm hoping they will but after reading some of the other members experiences anything is possible.

Thanks

It is always better to add a note to it. Always better to have to much info on the safe side then not enough and get an RFE

It says list all children, so they will be listed and no explanation needed. It's biographical info, like asking your parent's names. You'll find children will be listed many times during the process, even on the citizenship application. There is one of the visa forms later (DS-230) where one can list the names of persons who will accompany you to the US.

Sorry, don't know what problems others have had that you mentioned. Was it about children?

Thank you for that response. I just don't want the process slowing down with any unnecessary RFE's. I've noticed from other posts on this forum that forms are rejected for the slightest error.

Fingers crossed then that Vermont are fulfilling their processing time frame of 5 months.

We listed grown UK children on the I-129F and subsequent forms and have made it to "approved for citizenship" without any RFEs. Good luck.

Since you have grown children, I'll assume there is also a UK divorce and pass on another tip if the divorce was England. Scotland is different. I've helped a number of people with RFEs on their UK divorce decree. Here's an example of one of them http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/319837-rfe-divorce-decree/ Maybe you can avoid one in the first place by following what I did in post #4.

Edit to add: And a tip if photocopying on US 8.5x11 paper--to avoid cutting off the footer that says "decree absolute (divorce)", flip it where the bottom of the A4 lines up with the top of the copier glass. Makes a perfect copy with nothing lost from the slightly longer A4.

Once you get the I-129F in the mail, start reading this thread London 2012- K1s from NOA2 to interview thread so you learn the London part that comes after your petition approval. Each consulate is different so don't get confused by procedures in other countries.

Wow your a font of knowledge thank you. I have never been married. This will be the first time & he's the same man that proposed to me 23 years ago. Long story.

It's great that us new members can rely on those that have been there to impart your experiences and valued advice.
