K1 Visa and Letter of Consent/Advice, CENOMAR?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi VJers! Excited to be part of this community!

I've been wondering about if I (the petitioner) need to submit a letter of consent/advice with CENOMAR with the I-129F? I'm hearing mixed things about it so I probably will try to submit those with the initial package. However, it will be difficult to get those letters in a quick manner, because my fiancee's father is an OFW in Italy, and there's some inconsistencies with her mother's legal name on her ID compared to what she has on my fiancee's birth certificate. I realize that she will need this for the CFO after obtaining her visa.

Also, will the USCIS require the forms with original signatures, notarized?

Thanks!

When dealing with the US Government, the smart thing to do is answer questions truthfully - but don't volunteer information they don't ask for. If they don't have a problem with your girl's situation they'll issue a visa but if they have questions then answer them truthfully and supply whatever supporting documentation they ask for but don't make a problem out of something they may not care about.

Is your fiancee of legal age (18? or maybe 21? depends on the state) to marry in the state where you live? If she is of legal age.... then NO. USCIS will not want the CENOMAR either - heck they won't even know what one is. The consent letter would only be a though if you were going to marry a minor.

As for CFO if you fiancee is of an age to need the consent or advise letter it can be from either parent. Info in my link.

She is 21 years old, and will be 22 in July. I myself am 25. I saw a post from a while back that there was an a rejection of I129F application because of the age requirement: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/394490-i-129f-denied/

I just want to make sure everything goes smoothly

That post if full of holes, the OP posted a few times, didn't have a copy of the actual RFE and after a bit disappeared, my thinking is at some point he did an :oops: as he realized he screwed up the the RFE and didn't want to post that fact. There is for sure more to this story then was posted. I sure would not use that one topic as a reference for doing something in this race for a visa.

I know at the embassy stage of this process they have never asked for a consent or advice letter, and that "odd" topic you found was the one and only I have ever read regarding USCIS wanting a consent letter, and personally I think the guy mis-read the RFE and he screwed the pooch.

Here is the deal, IF you feel more comfortable having a consent letter in the I-129F petition, +++ everything listed in the K-1 GUIDE here on VJ http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1guide there is no harm in that. But with your fiancee being 21 years of age I do not see it as an issue. There is a link to a consent letter template in my link below (follow the flashing arrow), oh heck I will post it here.

My 21 year old fiancée was asked for the Letter of Advise at the CFO. We also had read about this requirement, so before the CFO interview we googled a sample, then she, mom and dad signed with a lawyer who notarized it. We haven't had our USEM interview yet. When we do, we will have the letter with us.

We did not submit a CENOMAR or Letter of Advise with the original I-129 application as those 2 documents are for the USEM interview stage and CFO after petition approval.

Yes CFO is known for asking for the consent/advise letter. The embassy will NOT ask for a consent/advise letter.

Have everything listed in the embassy instructions letter and all will be fine.
