Are you confusing the marriage affidavit with the section on how you met?

The petitioner writes the answer to the how have you met. You put a couple of sentences thats all. You both don't write this only 1 person does.

You both write an affidavit stating you are free and willing and want to marry in the 90 days. Original signatures on both letters. They do not have to be the same but should include that in the letters.

Both stories on the I-129f? Only one place you tell the story when asked, which is submitted by the US fiance(e). When the foreign fiance(e) has their interview, the officer may ask how/when/where you met and use the i-129f as a reference.

Doesn't have to be lengthy, mention when, where and who. Your initial(primary) evidence will support this.


K1 process, October 2010 > POE, July 2011

I-129F approved in 180 days from NOA1 date. (195 days from filing to NOA2 in hand)

Interview took 224 days from I-129F NOA1 date. (241 days from filing petition until visa in hand)

From filing I-129F petition until POE: 285 days

From filing I-129F petition until greencard in hand: 655 days

I believe you are talking about question 18 on the I-129F, right? I know some people write several pages, but look at the space for the question in the I-129F. If USCIS had expected a whole novel, they would have surely given it more space than three lines, at least that is what I think. We filled the three lines mentioning how and when we met online, and then the dates of when we met in person. That's it. If they do require extra-informaiton, they'll ask.
