New to the K1 Process

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am very new to this, and I have been reading as much information as possible. I have gathered as much evidence as possible.

I do have a few questions:

The current forms on the website, are all outdated. Is it ok to use them in my packet, or is there updated ones somewhere?

Is it better to go to an office to start the K1 or am I safe enough gathering all documents and sending it on my own?

Im from Minnesota, and my fiancé is from Australia, would we be ok to buy a future plane ticket, or should we wait?

Thank you for any replies. They are greatly appreciated.

Always use the forms posted on the USCIS.gov website. Those will be the latest.

Please be sure to read -- thoroughly -- the I-129F instructions. It will tell you how and where to file. This process is all about the details.

If you're buying a ticket for her to visit you in MN, that's one thing. Be sure to read the "Yes You Can Visit!" pinned thread. However if you mean for moving to the U.S., do not buy any tickets until the visa is in hand. The petition process takes, on average, 5-7 months and then there's the actual visa application process, which can take a few more months.

Good luck!

You should go to the USCIS website to get all your forms. When you go do the forms page, it will tell you if they are still accepting outdated versions and/or which versions are still being accepted. As far as I know, the download links they have on their site will allow you to download the most current version available--even if it says its outdated. Using these forms should still be OK.

Does anyone know where I can get an updated g-325a Bio PDF? Or am I ok to use the outdated one on the site?

Again, just use the forms on USCIS.gov. If it's posted there, then you're fine. It will state on the page which version(s) will be accepted. For example, the G-325A says, "Edition Date :

08/08/11. Previous editions accepted."
