Hi Rena,

Personal check is fine and it needs to be address, per the I-129F Instruction form, to Department of Homeland Security.

This would be a good time to remind you that it's very important to read all of the instructions carefully and fully (since the answer to these questions were in the instructions already, hehe). You don't want to miss anything or misunderstand anything. VJ is a great resource but it's also good to make sure you read the instructions forwards and backwards to make sure you're not missing anything.

Good luck!

6/13/12 - NOA2 APPROVED! 5-months to the date of them receiving it.

6/21/12 - NVC Received (I think, I called on 22 early morning and it had an NVC case number already). Assigned an Abu Dhabi case number. Asked NVC what I needed to do to change consulates and followed the procedures exactly as they told me.

6/29/12 - NVC sent our case to the wrong consulate even though I followed every procedure to notify them of change-of-address

6/29/12 - Emailed both Abu Dhabi and Montreal to request transfer to the correct consulate (Montreal)

7/18/12 - Phone call from rep of the congressman offering me help, very nice people!

7/24/12 - Thanks to local congressman's help, Montreal officially requesting case from Abu Dhabi (one month delay but at least we're back on track)

8/22/12 - Received Packet 3 email from Montreal. Started gathering final documents

9/27/12 - Received packet 3 letter from Vancouver.

The dates are not as important as having them SIGNED, though signed and dated works best! :wacko: There have been several RFEs due to unsigned documents/forms, or incomplete forms (blanks, no answers).

The check should be made payable to "U.S. Department of Homeland Security". READ THE INSTRUCTIONS !!! :wow:

Good luck on your visa journey.

And here is how the confusion begins. He is submitting an I-129f petition, NOT a K-1 visa.

1. A personal check is acceptable for the I-129f petition fee. It is not acceptable for a K-1 visa fee but that is not what he is paying. Petitions and visas are not the same thing.

2. Emails not needed for a petition, no proof of ongoing realtonship needed for a petition, only proof of meeting in person.

3. dates do not matter.

Do the G325 & letter of intent need to be the originals or are scanned copies ok to send in?

Sorry to jump off topic a little here... I'm a noob!! :blush:

YAY~~ U have been second guessing my papers since waiting to receive NOA2--worried because I did not include emails or chatlogs. Only evidence that we met with pictures included. Now I feel alittle more confident that we will not receive a RFR..... :innocent: I Pray
