Filling Out i-751 Form - Confusion on Part 7 & 8

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

My husband and I are currently working on completing the i-751 form. We are just confused with Part 7 and Part 8. I am the conditional resident and my husband is the USC.

On page 6, Part 7 (Petitioner's Statement and Contact Information) items number 3, 4 & 5 (Petitioner's Contact Info) - should it be my husband's contact info? I am pretty sure it should be his HOWEVER on page 7, Part 8 (Spouse's or Individual's listed in PART 4's statement), items number 3, 4 & 5 (Spouse's or Individual's Contact Info) - should it still be my husband's still????

Also, since we are confused on those 2 parts mentioned above, could you please help clarify on who needs to sign on the following:

- Page 7, part 6, item 6a (petitioner's signature)

- Part 8, page 7, item 6a (spouse's or individual's signature)

Also, for the items that do not apply to us, like we do not have children, should we leave those spaces blank or should we type in "n/a" or "none"? Please advise.

Thank you so much in advance for your help!!!

The conditional greencard holder is the petitioner completing part 7 and the US citizen spouse completes part 8. It is confusing.

You are petitioning to remove conditions and your husband is the spouse (it says spouse or individual since children, who have no spouses, can use the same form to remove conditions based on their relationship with a step-parent).

Thank you Cheezes and Uhoh for clarifying! I have always thought that "petitioner" was the individual petitioning a beneficiary. Phew! Glad that's all clear now. That was very confusing.

As for items that do not apply to us, like having interpreters/preparers, should we just leave those spaces blank? Or should we write down "n/a" or "none"?

Thank you!

We just left those pages blank. Hopefully that's correct.

yes this was super confusing - they need to make it more clear or maybe they just love to set traps - yes they love to set traps on purpose. U.S. Government.

YEP.. this has to be one of the most annoying ridiculous parts of this form - in normal english, the petitioner is the American Husband and the Spouse is the filipina wife. But they have to confuse the hell out everyone. And even in Part 8 the english points to the filipina wife, but apparently they are talking about the American Husband... " I, .. understand that the purpose of a USCIS ASC appointment is for ME to provide my fingerprints, photograph, and/or signature and to re-affirm that all of the information in MY petition is complete, true, and correct and was provided by me."  - this statement is so confusing because they automatically put the Husband's name in there.. But it appears they are talking about the wife.. very bizarre and whoever writes these forms should be fired.

Thanks to the original poster and those of you who responded with clear and reasonable answers!

 

My wife and I had the identical question when we came across sections 7&8.  It seems certain terminology doesn't remain very consistent throughout the visa, and green card processes.

After re-reading the form and instruction and scratching our heads with uncertainty, we suspected we had it correct, but it was nice to have found this post as confirmation.

 

Best of luck to all and Regards,
