I-129F Address too long, no more spaces

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We're filling out the I-129F form, and some info like our addresses are too long. We had it typed out in MS Word and thinking of handwriting the rest of the address. Do we need additional sheet for like 3 more words of the address or is it ok to just handwrite it in smaller size and just make sure it all fits in the box, readable and clean without erasures?

As always, thank you all guys!

If it were me I would use additional sheets. Just put the question number on the sheet and continue there. I would not try to squeeze it in and make it hard to read. I would put see additional Sheet so they know to look for them. Just my thought.

I attached mine on a separate sheet and made sure to put my name, form number and question in the header.

Just remember to sign and date additional sheets :)

Thanks guys!

How about in G-325A form? In the applicant's residence in the last 5 years.. I need to attach additional sheet again? The rest of the info in the form was typed out then I left the street and number box empty, planning to handwrite LEGIBLY to fit and readable. Will that be ok instead of attaching additional sheet which will only contain 3 words?

As long as it's not a form that has to be electronically generated like the DS-156 then it's perfectly acceptable to write in the information by hand. In fact, the entire form can be filled out by hand if you prefer. They provide the form as an editable PDF purely for your convenience, but you aren't required to use a computer to fill out the form.

That said, any information they need in their computer system from any of the forms is going to be manually transcribed. A computer printout is less likely to be misread than information manually written. Most people prefer to provide addendum sheets because it reduces the chances of errors. If you choose to use an addendum then don't bother to enter ANY of the affected fields on the form itself. In other words, don't write part of the address in the box and then finish it on the addendum sheet. Just write "see attachment" in the box, and write the entire address on the addendum sheet. Be sure to note on the addendum sheet which box on the original form the information pertains to. For example:

Form I-129F, Part B, Section 2 - Fiancee's address

1234 Street Name

City, Province, Country


12/15/2009 - K1 Visa Interview - APPROVED!

12/29/2009 - Married in Oakland, CA!

08/18/2010 - AOS Interview - APPROVED!

05/01/2013 - Removal of Conditions - APPROVED!

This is how the supplement looked for my Fiancee's G-325A. This should be perfectly fine (formatted to look nice obviously). I wrote Please See Attached in every box I used a supplement page for. No partially filled in boxes, just Please See Attached.

Supplement For G-325A, Biographic Information: Applicant’s residence last five years

09/11/2012

Street, City, Country – From 07/2012 to Present Time

Street, City, Country - From 12/2008 to 06/2012

Thanks everyone!

We decided to just attach additional sheet adn put "see attachment" on the boxes in the form.

Then on the attached sheet, I put the form number and the question.

I made a table identical to the table in the form only bigger enough to fill in the info I need to put.

Regards to everyone! :)
