I-130 petition questions

I'm starting the process of filling out the I-130. There's a few questions that seems strait forwards, but not to me (lol)

On line 17 section C

What exactly they want to know? My wife says just put me, our daughter and her son (and there relationship to each other), but I think there asking to put her, our daughter and my stepson and there relationship between me and them. Which is right? Her or me?

When I type in our names, should I start with our last names first through out the app? Or ? Also, if I type our last names first, should I put a comma to separate our last names from the rest? (Example: last name> xxxxxxxx, first name> xxxx middle name> xxxx).

When I put her LONG DANG phone number on line on line 19, I put it as it is on my phone with the + and - and ( ). It does not show the whole numer as it would be seen as a whole unless you scroll side ways to see it whole. Is this ok? I tried two deferent ways and its always the same.

More questions as they come up.

Line 17 Section C

Thats for the beneficiary of the petition. If the I-130 petition is for wife then the names should be her children. Put the Name and Last name, then relationship if SON or DAUGHTER their birthdays and Country of birth.

I have no idea how long is the phone number but if it will not fit you can just hand write it using black ink.

Regards!


Thanks!

She is correct, you list yourself, your daughter, and her son.

Damn, she wins another one (laughing). So, on that line I put me, my stepson and our daughter and the "relationship" to me, right? And as far as the putting last name first, I can just put first, middle and last? Those little tidbits confussed me. I want to make sure we get it right the first time.

So, this pitition I'm doing is for my wife,, then I have to do a seprate pitition on my stepson, right? We already did the paperwork on our daughter and she already has her US passport, so we don't have to do a pitition for her.

Yes, you must file a separate petition for your stepson. However, you can only do so if you married your wife prior to his 18th birthday.

He just turned 13, so we're ok there. I kinda wish they give details (extream details) on how to answer them apps for people like me with A.D.H.D. (Laughing). :blink:

My husband and I were married in my country and my daughter was 15 years old that time. He put my daughter's name on that Section C and he didnt file a separate petition for her. We went to USA together since she was minor that time.

The reason why you must file separate petitions for your wife and stepson is because the CR-2 visa (the visa your stepson would apply for) is not a derivative visa. In order for him to be able to apply for it, it needs to be on the basis of an approved standalone I-130 petition filed on his behalf.

My husband and I were married in my country and my daughter was 15 years old that time. He put my daughter's name on that Section C and he didnt file a separate petition for her. We went to USA together since she was minor that time.

What visa type did you come here on? As I previously stated, the CR-2 visa is not a derivative visa type; your post implies that it is which would be inaccurate and unhelpful to the OP.

I know I have to do a pitition for each my wife and my stepson. What confuses me is that for one, line 17 C what there asking for. Ok, now after asking y'all, I know what to do. Now, when I do the pitition for my stepson, what would I put in line 17 C ? It's not hitting me yet as what to do. Maybe it will click when my wife throws another crack shot at me (laughing). I'm never was the person to do paperwork like this, and my brain shorts out on stuff like this as important as it is, I DO NOT WANT TO MESS THIS UP. :wacko:

There's one other thing that I hope want confused the people who looks at the petition, over here in the states, we have three names. Over there, they just use two. After we married, I just told her to add my last name to her last name and she put a " - " between her last name and mine. I suggested this because she's a lawyer over there and it would be easier for her (or others from her country) to recognize she's still the same person (as best I can explain what I'm trying to say). Well, she also told me she uses her dad's family name at times. So, I'm wondering if all those names will confuse the heck out of the people that looks through these petitions. :rofl:

The names that will go there are yours, your wife's, his biological father's name (if known), and any siblings he may have.

See below on how to answer that question.

First, you must understand YOU are the petitioner. On each petitioner, the beneficiary is YOUR alien relative. Your wife has a husband, YOU and a son. Your stepson has no spouse or children, so answer none. If you were filing for your mother, her husband would be (hypothetically) your father and YOU would be your mother's son. Get it?

The names that will go there are yours, your wife's, his biological father's name (if known), and any siblings he may have.

This is incorrect. Assuming the stepson is unmarried, the answer for 17C on the petition for him will be "NONE" as he has no spouse or children.

Thank you very much. :thumbs:

I did not give correct information regarding the petition you fill out on behalf of your stepson previously. :bonk:

Question 17C specifically asks for spouse and children of the beneficiary. Since your stepson is the beneficiary of that petition, I am assuming he is not married and has no children. Therefore, the proper answer would be "NONE" for that question on the petition you fill out on his behalf.
