Forgot to answer Question "15" on I-129F

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So, even though I reviewed the application a few times before I sent it in, I now realize that I left question 15. unanswered, "Has your fiancée ever been to the United States?" I totally missed this question, is there any way I can head the issue off at the pass by calling somewhere, or do I have to wait on an RFE? The Application was just accepted at the lockbox on 12/14/16.

Thanks

Wait for RFE or hopefully it will be overlooked by them as well. Nothing you can do at this point. You can't call them and have them fill in the blanks for a form you signed.

Good thing about RFE's is they are normally worked quickly.

I assume they won't over look it so I shall wait for the RFE. Does an RFE put a big wrench in the process, meaning delay it awhile (assuming I reply asap)?

Not a big wrench just adds more time.

Another member just received approval after getting and RFE earlier this month.

18 days after he sent in his response he was approved.

It can add the range of 14-30 days to the NOA 2 maybe more maybe less. Every case and every worker is different.

The good things is you know your case is being worked by someone and not just sitting on a shelf if you get an RFE.

Be sure to send back your response with delivery confirmation so you have peace of mind that they got it.

Also make copy of EVERY thing you send them in the event they or the post office lose it.

Receiving an RFE is a golden opportunity to add additional evidence to your file for the consular stage.

First, respond completely to the RFE, including their cover-page if they send one.

Next, create another page that says "PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO THE CONSULATE UPON PETITION APPROVAL" or similar, and add more evidence of your bona fide relationship that you've developed since you originally sent the petition. Put all this behind the RFE response.

This is brilliant :idea:

Never thought of doing this.

It would work especially well if someone made an additional trip to meet their loved one prior to the RFE but after the NOA 1.

I'll keep this in mind if every I get an RFE (please no)

Thanks for the Tip TBONETX

However, filers going through Manila rarely need to worry about this.

My friend forgot to do this question for her fiancee in dr she got an noir.

They returned to her the form she checked off he hadnt signed and he is here now.

They will give you a chance to fix it good luck.

Ps

I also didnt check it off and i didnt get anything.

At the interview they didnt ask either. I got a second chance when i did the ds160.
