Quick help with I-129F

Hi everyone,

I've asked this question before, but need clarification... (please forgive me!):

We just got NOA1 for our I-130 (YAY!) and are now getting ready to send our I-129F. Question 11A says: "Have you ever filed for this or any other alien fiance or husband/wife before? If yes, give name of alien, place and date of filing and result."

Ok, so what do I put here? Do I check "yes" because I filed an I-130 for my husband? And if so, what do I put for date of filing and result? Do I put the date we MAILED the I-130? Or the date we received NOA1?? And what is the "result?" Do I just say "NOA1 Received?" (I mean, I can't say it's been approved at this stage.)

Confused as to what is appropriate to list here.

Thanks again for your continued help! :D

I don't know how everyone else did it, but I put "No" because I've never filed that form for anyone else before. The I-130 I filed prior to this I-129f was part of the same process, so I didn't count that. I don't know if that's what they mean, but that's how I did it. :whistle:

The question doesn't ask for any immigrant petition you've filed someone. It asks if you have filed an I-129F for your spouse or any other person before. If this is the first time you've file an I-129F then asnwer no.

Why would you file the 129F? You said you are already married, The 129F is for Fiance
The reason you have to file the I-129F is because it is the same form used when applying for a K-3 Spousal Visa.Yes-it is called a Fience petition, but in fact it is also a spouse petition (you simply use the word spouse instead of Fience when reading the form)..The I-129F allows the alien spouse to come to the U.S. on a non immigrant K-3 Visa(just like the K-1 Visa allows),This way you and your alien spouse can be together in the U.S. while waiting for the I-130 Immigrant Visa to become approved-or something like that :unsure::lol: .The I-129F is a required form when applying for a K-3 spousal Visa.It is kinda confusing at first but once you figure it out it all makes sense :yes:

scy,

The question is, "Have you ever filed for this or any other alien fiance(e) or husband/wife before?"

I don't see the "I-129F" you mention in there .....

Yodrak

The question doesn't ask for any immigrant petition you've filed someone. It asks if you have filed an I-129F for your spouse or any other person before. If this is the first time you've file an I-129F then asnwer no.

It doesn't say I-129F, but I interpreted that way. The question itself is too vague. You can choose to interpret it broadly and apply it to any petitions you've filed for an alien fiancee or spouse. I don't think the form intended the question to be that way so I choose the stricter interpretation of "have you ever filed an I-129F for anyone?"

The sample form on VJ marked no. I marked No on my I-129F and didn't receive any RFE for it.

scy,

Your first post sounded much more definite than that, no indication of vagueness at all!

I wouldn't expect you to get an RFE for that answer to that question in your circumstances - you provided evidence of the I-130 already, as part of the I-129f application, did you not? If you'd answered 'no' and there had been a previous petition for someone else, things might have been different.
