G-325A signature validity (split topic)

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I know this is an old post, but I have a similar question about the signature of the foreign spouse. Before leaving my wife in her home country of Namibia, I printed off a G-325A, had her sign & date it and brought it back with me. My question is: How long is the date/signature good for? She signed it on the 5th of July 2015 and it will be a couple of months yet, before I file the I-130.
