Case used when filling out I-129F, G-325A, etc...

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm going to type when filling out the applications. My question is would it be ok to use all upper case (JOHN DOE, 1225 MAIN STREET, etc...) or do I need to use a combination of upper case and lower case (John Doe, 1225 Main Street, etc...) ? I would prefer to type in upper case so that if I have to hand write something because something typed wouldn't fit in a field, I would write it in upper case.

I know, I know, I'm probably over thinking this. But I just don't want an RFE, especially from my fiancee's forms since it would be a pain to get her to re-do them and send them to me.

Thanks in advance!

Not sure where we originally got this information from, but my fiance and I filled out the I-129F in a suggested way which was to put the last names in UPPERCASE and the remainder of the words/names in Proper case (ie: Main St. Philadelphia) etc.

I don't recall where it was we received this tip, it was in the weeks we spent researching. We filled out all documents in this manner and are through to the interview stage without an RFE. To be honest I'm not sure the case matters too much, but that's what we did.

Hope that helps!

You can do whatever you wish. In the end the visa and green card is all capitals (uppercase) so it doesn't really matter. I did the last names in capitals and the rest in proper to make sure that first, middle, last names were defined.

You guys know an RFE is Request For Evidence. If the form is wrong, it's merely rejected, they do not ask for evidence.

It's up to you! When I did mine I typed it all out lower case. Only used upper case when I needed a capital letter. Mine got approved with no RFEs

Be sure to follow any specific form instructions. There are a couple of forms where the family name is to be in CAPS, and the other names only capitalize the first letter. Form I-130 is one such example, there are likely others.

Good luck.
