Leaving For China, Forms Not Complete

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am leaving for China real soon. I am not going to print the CR-1 Visa forms to take with me, rather, I'm going to print them when I am in China then have my fiancee sign them there. The reason for that is because she is in the process of moving to a new city and home now, so I want to be sure to put her most current address on the CR-1 Visa forms.

Three questions I need help with before I depart for China to see her...

1) On Form G-325a, it asks for such things as "Applicant's residence last five years"; I am assuming that "applicant" would be my fiancee, is that correct?

2) In the i-130 instructions on the last page, in the "Checklist" section, it asks, "* Did you include your completed Form G-325A * His or her Form G-325A?" So I have to fill out this form once with my information and once with her information? Two Form G-325A's but one for her and one for me?

3) On Form i-130, under "D. Other information", it asks "Have you ever before filed a petition for this or any other alien?" Are they asking if I have ever filed for a CR-1 Visa, or would a Fiancee Visa count as 'having filed'?

I did file for a Fiancee Visa for my fiancee, but she let it expire and wants to pursue a Marriage Visa instead.

Thanks,

Answers:

1. Yes

2. One G-325A for you, one G-325A for her

3. Petitioning a fiancee counts, you will have to answer yes to that question

Lastly, you may want to update your "Filed for" info to reflect the visa that is being sought (it currently says K1).
