I caught my own error :(

Hello all!

We're new to this. Today I took my packet of forms and evidence to the post office and sent it off with the money order for our K-1 fiancé Visa. I scanned and emailed the entire packet to my fiancé so he can have a copy for his own records and he looked them over and noticed I made a typo on his postal code in one section of the I-129F form. I know I should have had him look it over before I mailed it out, I got ahead of myself. Will something this simple hold thing up, or even get us denied? The address is correct in ever other area it appears.

It won't be a basis for your case to be denied. USCIS will mail the decision notice to your address in the U.S. anyway, so it won't be lost in the mail in your fiance's home country. Just have your fiance draw the typo to the officer's attention on the day of his interview.

My fiancé wrote my postal code down wrong, too. 19xx.. instead of 29xx.. I got a call from the Consulate that packet 3 was mailed out to me but send back five days later because my fiancé filled the wrong postal code. They weren't really happy with it but they wrote down the good one and 2 days later I had it in the mail. They won't be certainly happy with it but it's ok. You won't be denied based on that, they don't even look at it. Just make sure to e-mail to immigrantvisasams@state.gov once you petition is approved and at the consulate to let them know.

Thank you all!!! I am the US citizen. I will be sure to let him know to bring it up during his interview. I was stressing about it when he pointed it out. Our story is 12 years in the making. I'm not waiting for my man anymore! Haha

Oh, then it's all good. Don't worry.

If they need his address, it will be at the embassy stage. The embassy probably contacts the petitioner first, and then He will need to fill ds160 and at the interview they will ask him to confirm address anyway.

Good luck and lots of patience to you on your journey.

No, don't wait until the interview. You can't even. Packet 3 will be send to the adress that is provided on the original I-129F form, so for them (as well for me), the wrong postal code. The Consulate does not know this and will just send it to that adress, so make sure on when your approved petition is on it's way to the Netherlands, e-mail the Consulate with good information and explanation. This will help because for example, it delays even more.

Hey, that is not a reason to be denied I assure you that.

You know whenever our package was on the NVC my fiance called to check the case number and stuff they ask him to confirm all my information, phone-adress-email-birth day to be sent to the embassy.

You'll be good don't worry ?

Thank you! Great advice! He will contact the Embassy and let them know what happened once we've received approval of our petition. I hope ours goes as quickly as yours! Though I'm sure it seems like it's taken forever for you, we've anticipated the worst, haha!

You might get an RFE questioning the error and asking for clarification. But I think that would be worst case. Try not to worry overmuch. :)

Gotcha. Good to know. My embassy sent the packet online and I assumed it would be the same, sorry op for giving bad advice! Best of luck and I hope this can be sorted out soon

Which error? They probably don't even see it, like with me. I had on my Intent ro Marry my right postal code and on the original petition the one number wrong. I don't think at all this will lead to an RFE or denial.
