I-129F Question 34a.

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Regarding on form I-129F question 34a. (explain how you met in person...) does USCIS still accept supplement which is on bullet form? or like

DATE- first met

DATE- engagement

so on and so forth.... or should it be on a paragraph form? I'm on the process of finalizing every supplements/attachments for the file and it's making me paranoid...I already made a 1 whole page summary and it feels like it's too much... Just want to be sure with everything before I file..

Thank your for your support.

Your answer should include, in a paragraph, the conditions under which you met, not the timelines of your relationship, i.e. met online through FB; we were introduced by common friends at a party in my fiancee's house; met while on a cruiseship in Alaska; mail order bride catalog; marriage broker; etc.

Sure you can do the supplemental attachment but two sentences should be all it takes to describe the dates / location where you two met in person. That's it. Two sentences max.

For the I-129F the only thing you need for question 34.a will fit on the form itself: WE MET IN [PLACE] ON [DATE].

If you want to write a supplement sheet, its ok too, and it can be whatever format you want to use. You can write a page in letter format, or you can write a page with just a listing of bullet points of important dates in your relationship, or a combination of the two. In my first K-1 petition, my supplement page was just one page long and it was in a letter format. With my last K-1 petition, I had a few bullet points at the top with important dates and underneath I wrote a brief description of how we met...first how we initially met each other online and then how I flew to Manila to meet in person. Absolutely no issues. Just make sure you make it clear how you met in person.

I was looking on your timeline for the K1, I was impressed how fast it was on your case since my Fiance is Filipino too.. What process are you in now?

You can also include a separate sheet (unrelated to this question) outlining a timeline of your relationship. This is something we, any many others, chose to do. But for the answer for that particular question just one or two brief sentences are required.

After reading these posts i'm now a little worried, my fiancé simply said in response to question 34(a) that we met on line via a dating service and then the date we met. Will this get us an RFE?

We supplied enough evidence of us been together such as a hotel receipt, plane ticket, boarding pass and passport evidence as well as pics together.

We have been waiting 6 months now to get our NOA2, any set back at this point would be crushing :cry:

I wrote a half page continuation to 34a outlining how we met and got to know each other. We met in 2013 and see each other every weekend- should i just write two sentences saying that and then "see attachment"? right now i just have "see attachment" without anything else. sorry the answer is probably already out there somewhere!
