Leaving blank spaces at form I-751 or write N/A ?

Timeline

In the USCIS website, in the instructions page for the form I-751 is states ''Answer all questions fully and accurately. If a question does not apply to you (for example, if you have never been married and the question asks “Provide the name of your current spouse”), type or print “N/A,” unless otherwise directed. If your answer to a question which requires a numeric response is zero or none (for example, “How many children do you have” or “How many times have you departed the United States”), type or print “None,” unless otherwise directed.''

Yes in the I-751 example for listed in this website it just leaves some spaces blank....

Should I just leave spaces blank if they don't apply to me or should I write N/A in the top of each topic that doesn't apply to me or should I write N/A at each and every blank space that doesn't apply to me?

Thank you! Hope it also helps others who have doubts about this, quite tricky.

Don't have a timeline? Don't know how to get started with it? Do it for the statistics sake: VJ video guide

Want to know what's happening with your case? Here's the USCIS tracking page (get an account and see if the case's been 'touched'!). Don't get your hopes up though, some cases never even appear there despite being successfully processed.

Hey Guys,

a question regarding this, If I'm filling out form using Adobe Reader, it does not allow me to put '/' character. So for middle name which I do not have, Do I simply write 'NA' since '/' is not allowed?

On the "Example forms" on this site it usually says to write "None".....seems like that would be a safe bet then.

I mostly put N/A in the children's and interpreter's parts

One of the things I forgot to write in the computer so I handwrite it. It should be fine I don't think they gonna go crazy or deny or send back anything based on if you wrote with pencil or if you put N/A instead of none

I didn't write N/A or none :( I somehow missed that because it did not allowed me to use the / and when I had it all complete I just forgot to handwrite it.

They accepted my package and I already have NOA1. Hopefully I do not have any problems with it .... I certainly do not want to make anyone mad at CSC... :oops:

I am getting ready to file for ROC, by myself, after using an attorney for the K1 and AOS part of the journey. I had a look at my file (with everything that was filed by my attorney on our behalf, including the forms), and all parts not pertaining to my specific situation were left BLANK, so I think it is safe to assume you do not have to fill out each and every field if it doesn't pertain to your specific situation.

N/A or None depending on the question.

For example I put "none" under number of children and then "N/A" in all the questions about children.

I didn't leave any question blank.

No- if you write "NA" it will submit that NA is your middle name. Print out the form and fill in all N/As by hand.

I agree with LucyBelle since even leaving the field empty can be issue since some USCIS officer might think that you forgot to fill and putting 'NA' can be problem too.

There is another solution though, you can basically fill out I-751 form using Chrome Browser itself and print directly from there. And you can type N/A in form as well in this case.

https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-751.pdf (just copy and paste in your google Chrome.

I hope that will help ya'll.

I just hand wrote N/A in fields about child/ person translating/ attorney/ all the things that we don't have and don't apply to us.

I did not write anything in date that marriage ended tho cause we are still currently married.

Should I write N/A or NONE in that field?

also, is it better to re-print the forms and when it asks for the info of the kids should I write none instead of N/A? Thank you very much
