G-325a Not sure about Fiance's residence

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm Jessie and although I've been gathering information off of Visa Journey for a few months, I've just made an account and this is my first post so I'd like to say thanks in advance.

Here's my question: My Fiance, Maggy, lives in Zacatecas Mexico. She's lived in the same house with her parents since she was born, however Maggies mom used my fiances grandmothers adress when registering her for school and a handful of other things. Her mom told us she's almost positive that they have always used the grandmothers adress except for Maggies ID which she got last January. What we are wondering is what address to use. Her home adress where she has lived all her life or the adress for her grandmother which was used to register for school and probably a handful of other things.

This is a separate question entirely, but I'm in Mexico with my fiance at the moment and going to be leaving this Thursday to go back to the states. While I'm here, I'm trying to finish all the parts of the application for the K-1 Visa that will require her signature. From everything I've read she needs to sign the G-325a, the letter of intent, and a letter stating how we met/fell in love. Is there anything I've missed?

Thanks, Jessie

I was advised by an immigration officer to list addresses of actual residence as opposed to addresses used for banking, car registration, etc. I can't speak with 100% confidence and would suggest you speak to an immigration officer too, but my husband lives with his parents and has a similar situation as your fiancé and that's what we were told when filing our G-325a.

It asks for residence and not a mailing address, so put the address where she resides. Also, she does not need to provide a letter about your love story. She only needs the G-325A, letter of intent and a US sized passport photo.
