Question on G-325A (Residency)

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am just starting the whole K 1 process to bring my Canadian fiancée to the United States to live with me. I'm currently working on the G-325A form and am stuck on the section of residency for the past 5 years. I graduated from college last year and lived in multiple addresses during my time there, however I never formally changed my address on my drivers license away from my parents house. Should I report these places of residence or just use my formal address. This whole process seems daunting and I really want to make it as painless as possible after submitting the paperwork.

I know some of this can feel like a real PITA, but this isn't the kind of process where you can cut corners. Regardless of what your license says, if you actually lived somewhere, you need to include it. If you ever had any sort mail coming to you at those other addresses, or had services connected in your name, it's on record somewhere. Don't chance it.

The delays that might occur down the road if USCIS finds discrepancies in your application will be far greater than the time spent doing a little legwork now.

A good rule of thumb is, is that if you recieved mail at any location, that location will be considered a place you lived. If you wrote the address on ANYTHING then that's a place you lived.

When I do those little like "identification checks" when opening or doing something that requires them to verify info, generally one of the questions are "Which of these addresses have you NOT lived at". Weirdly enough one of those addresses is my mothers, which I didn't live at, I simply used for -TWO- weeks to have mail sent there while moving. Essentially any address that you've made known to anything, mail, school papers, what ever, counts as an address.

That said, you need to include all the places you can.
