Hi,

I am currently working on my I-129F forms. I am currently in the US and my Fiancee is still in her foreign country. I was wondering if I could fill in all her information for the letter of intent and G-325A and email it to her to sign and date. She will then email me back a copy of the intent and the G-325A, so i will not have the hard copy. Will there be an issue if she has the hard copy and I send a copy of the letter of intent and G-325A to USCIS?

You can fill out and email the G-325A and letter of intent for your fiancee, but the signatures you send to USCIS must be originals so she will have to mail them to you.

Sounds fine so far.

She will then email me back a copy of the intent and the G-325A,

No, she must mail them back to you so you can send in the forms with an original signature.

Use FedEx is you want to quicken that process.

Almost everyone on this board says originals. I printed out a scanned copy of the intent to marry and G-325A (although I now have the original as "back-up"). No RFE. I know i'm not the only one (edit: such as the person who just posted above me). Someone else a few months ago on another thread pointed out that USCIS instructions say copies are OK for everything except for the I-129f itself. That has to be original. That person also didn't receive a RFE. IMO people are a bit paranoid on VJ.

You were lucky for not getting an RFE! :) All the USCIS guides clearly state the the signatures on the documents must be originals and not photocopied or scanned or anything.

 

yea, maybe it depends? not sure, yea, we didnt get RFE and we got it approved sooner than we really expected. i also used black ink hehe, i really didnt know anything about it before..i thought i read somewhere that photocopies or scanned copies are acceptable.. not sure now, though.

Here are the instructions verbatim:

Copies. Unless specifically required an original document be filed with an application or petition, a legible photocopy may be submitted.

Bold is mine.

The part that mentions the G-325A makes no mention of original document needed.

The official answer is "Yes, you need to submit the original signature document".

In our case, she signed and scanned it as PDF file and emailed to me,

and I just printed and submitted it.

But I made sure she kept the original.

However, once we got past I-129F, and moved onto K1 visa processing in China,

I FedEx-ed all my original documents with my signatures.

I don't think I'm paranoid. I just wanted to be sure everything was done correctly as required so as not to delay anything. I didn't want to chance a delay with an RFE. I visited him so I was able to get original signatures, bring them back with me, and mail them in with the petition.

I believe you are lucky you did not receive an RFE. I have read posts of those who did for original signatures. So OP you can get original signature or take the chance. Its up to you.

Both Ann and I are really big on following instructions, so we made sure that the signatures were original (so far it has paid off: no RFE's yet). I am really good with government forms (worked for the Federal government as an auditor for many years) and so completed the forms and transcribed what she wanted to say in the letter of intent, with some editing, and then sent the documents by e-mail. She signed off on everything and then sent to me via FedEx the original signed documents as well as originals of other documents we needed (passport size photos, birth certificates, copy of annulment petition, decision, and decree of finality, annotated marriage certificate, etc.).

Good luck and God bless!

Joe
