Hi:
We are starting the K1 process. My foreign fiancé has NO INFORMATION regarding her mother. It may be available once the family register (Birth Certificate) is obtained from South Korea, but that will take many many months to get. My fiancé has lived in Japan for most of her life. Her mother left the household when my fiancé was 2 months old. She does not even known her mother's name.
Ideally, we would like to get the initial application started now, but how should the Mother's info be listed on the G325a.
My fiancé will eventually have to travel from Japan where she lives to Korea to track down the Family Register, but she can't do that for at least three months. Plus, since she was born in the mid-1960's the family register itself may not be obtainable.
Does anyone have any advice? Can we start the process by leaving all the info regarding the Mother as "Unknown" or will that just cause a request for further information?
Thanks
Eric

Interesting question. I wish I could say for sure if she can write "unknown" in order to submit the application because she would need a copy of her birth record later on anyway.

I guess you can submit the application like that and include a letter explaining the situation, but I personally wouldn't risk an RFE and make sure I have the birth certificate with this info or the letter of no record just in case. Remember that in order to get the visa without a birth cert, she would need other evidence about the facts of her birth.

Maybe someone can give a better suggestion, but that is just my opinion on what I would do. Good luck.


This does not constitute legal advice.

My fiance (now husband) never knew his father and doesn't know his whereabouts since his father left them before he was born. It never came up as an issue. Just list her mother's name if you know it. If not, just write unknown. Go ahead and move forward with the petition. Just make sure the BC is available come interview time.

Putting UNKNOWN is fine for the G-325A form.

I also had to write UNKNOWN for my moms where abouts! Which I did end up finding out about later on for the DS-160. They never asked me how I didn't know for the biographic page but then knew for the DS-160... you know, a lot changes in 6 months! We never had an RFE for writing "UNKNOWN" ... my fiance had to write "DECEASED" under the address! They don't give you a lot of options
