Information about your Relative

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This my sound like a stupid question but then I need to ask I am sending out my I-130 and all the paper work for my wife/spouse and child 2 years 9 month old but had to change something because of qualifying on the AOS later . The question is on the I-130 page 2 C.Information about your relative. It say " List Spouse and all children of your relative" My question is are they asking of the relation to me the petitioner or the relation of my spouse because to me they are step/children, but to my spouse they are her children. Can someone clear this up for me I don't mean to sound stupid but I understand the USCIS and NVC can be very picky and want to answer this correct .Thank you in advance

They're asking for the relationship to your spouse in this section (the beneficiary). So put your name down first and put "husband" under the relationship, then give the name of her child and put "child".

R and J was actually correct.

Page 2, Section C. of the I-130 is asking for information about the BENEFICIARY. In this section, you need to list the spouse and all children of the BENEFICIARY. This includes yourself as you are the husband (thus spouse) of the alien relative you are petitioning.

In your case, you list your own name and the name(s) of all your wife's children (including any from a previous marriage if applicable).

I hope this helps clear up your confusion.

Exactly correct. Let me make sense of it for you. It is YOUR petition. Your foreign relative is the person being asked about in this section. If your foreign relative is your wife, then YOU are your foreign relative's husband and HER children are YOUR foreign relative's children. When filing for an unmarried step child, you will enter NONE in this section. When filing for your married MOTHER, you put your Mother's husband's name as her husband and YOU and any of your brothers and sisters as her children. Get it?
