Couple of K1 questions

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I am just assembling my part of the I-129F. I just have a couple of questions. For your photo for the G-325, do you need to write the date in which it was taken? As I think I read somewhere it was meant to have been taken within the last 30 days, but it takes say 2-3 weeks to even get to America by mail.

Second, for the fiance letter of intent I looked at the example and it had


[name of country where Embassy is located][Embassy Address]

Do you need to fill them in? As it's a little confusing for me, If i do what would they be for me and my fiance?

Or could I just get away with something like this http://timag.es/ynqkm/4kgyw204229.png
Thank you very much

The instructions state to put the names on the backs of the passport photos, not the date >

b. Submit a passport-style color photograph of yourself and a passport-style color photograph of your beneficiary, with
both photos taken within 30 days of the date of filing this petition. The photos must have a white background, and
be glossy, un-retouched, and be unmounted. The dimension of the full frontal facial image should be about one inch
from your chin to the top of your hair. Using a pencil or felt pen, lightly print the name (and Alien Registration
Number, if known) on the back of each photograph.

For the letters intent, put the address you send the I-129F petition to, OR put no addresses at all. They are not a requirement.

These samples work perfectly >

The G-325A photo only needs your name on the back. It does not need a date.

Also, you do not need addresses for the letter of intent. Addresses are only used as a formality.

The sample letter you posted will work just fine.

We addressed our letters of intent to the address you'll be sending it to ie:

United States Department of Homeland Security

US Citizenship and Immigration Services

P.O. Box 660151

Dallas, TX 75266

That's simply because it's a formality type thing. It was perfectly fine that way but I don't think it mattered. The passport photo just needs the name on the back.
