I-130 and G325A questions

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, and thanks in advance for your responses.

I-130

Q17. List husband/wife of your relative and all children.

Is it necessary to fill this out since we have already stated that the petition is for a husband/wife and we have no children? If so, do I put the petitioner's name here?

Q22. If your relative is not eligible for adjustment of status, he or she will apply for a visa abroad at the American consular post in:

We can't use DCF, are filing with the Chicago lockbox and I don't know if we will have anything to do with the consulate where we live (cyprus). Is there a chance that he will have to go through the consulate in the UK (where he is from)? What should we put here?

G325A

Last question asks for full name and alien registration number. Neither of us have one, is it allright just to leave it blank?

I can't wait to send this packet in. It's 30 pages of headache already!!!

One last question, is there a way on VJ to look at just the topics that I have started? I can't always check this everyday and it takes time to scroll back through so many pages. Thanks!

Q17: yes & yes. It's redundant, but better than not doing it & finding out 3+ months later that you have to do it over again!

Q22: don't know, sorry! We're DCF...

G-325a: most people don't have these numbers... but instead of leaving blank I recommend "NONE" or "N/A" to cover your bases!!

Good luck - it's a relief mailing out that packet!

Cyprus is lovely, we were just there :)

Yes

Q22. If your relative is not eligible for adjustment of status, he or she will apply for a visa abroad at the American consular post in:

We can't use DCF, are filing with the Chicago lockbox and I don't know if we will have anything to do with the consulate where we live (cyprus). Is there a chance that he will have to go through the consulate in the UK (where he is from)? What should we put here?

Don't write anything on the two lines on the left, on the two lines on the right, write Nicosia, Cyprus.

G325A

Last question asks for full name and alien registration number. Neither of us have one, is it allright just to leave it blank?

Write "None" for the A# since neither of you have one.

I can't wait to send this packet in. It's 30 pages of headache already!!!

One last question, is there a way on VJ to look at just the topics that I have started? I can't always check this everyday and it takes time to scroll back through so many pages. Thanks!

Thank you both for answering. It is always appreciated.

To ljandjl, we are very jealous that you get to file DCF, that would make our lives so much easier. Good luck to you! :)
