what does this mean - At the end it says This form is submitted in connection with an application for :

naturalization or status as permanent resident or other

The US citizen would be the applicant or petitioner

The spouse is the beneficiary

for the USC you will check other and say I-130 being submitted for spouse

for the spouse you will check status as permenent resident

that is what I am doing.

Hope this helps!

that is what I am doing.

Hope this helps!

but there is no question for the spouse to be checked.

or are you trying to say that i should check both 'Status as Permanent Resident' and 'Other'?

and write in other: I-130 being submitted for spouse?

you have to fill out 2 different G-325A's.

The one you fill out for the American Citizen would be the petitioner and you would check OTHER and notate I-130 for spouse.

The one for the beneficiary you would Check status as permanent resident.

You will need to send the I-130 and a total of TWO G325A's

So when you say that the Applicant refers to the petitioner, we're supposed to enter the same information on both G-325a's, which would be my USC husband's employment and addresses, not mine? I filled out my form thinking it was my addresses and employment that was being asked for. Looks like I need to fill it out again, and mail. Another week of waiting, but glad I found out before it was too late.

Oh, sorry, I guess I could reply since I do know this one. For future reference, it's always best if you start a new thread if you have a question pertaining to yourself.

Most beneficiaries/applicants don't have either a social sec number or Alien number, so you put N/A (or none, just don't leave blank).

Leave it Blank. If he has neither of those numbers yet, you can't put one there.

One G325A for USC & one G325A for spouse (intending immigrant). If you are filling the form for you, you put your info. He puts his info on his. Don't put his addresses/employer/SS# info on yours or vice versa.

We put his name on his, and my name on mine. Filled it out accordingly. Your info on yours, his info on his.
