I-130 Questions

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

ON the form under "Other address and contact information" it says to "provide the beneficiary's address outside of the US if different from item # 11a & 11b"....even though his physical address is here with me in the US, do I still put his Canadian Address as well?

Also, it asks my employment. I am currently an apartment manager & I get reduced rent, I don't get a check or money. Should I still list that or no?

Thanks again everyone!!

I'll take a shot...so for the first question, yes, just put his Canadian address there. We also were living together in the US by that point but just put his mother's address in his home country and used our address in the US for all other parts.

 

I do think you should list that. I imagine when it comes time for your I-864 there will be a way for you to list your assets or provide an employment verification with the terms of your job, such as reduced rent. You'll prob want to get on that now and get either your employment contract or letter from your employer with that info.

I was told when I called the USCIS number that I was supposed to send everything in together? Now I don't know what to do :(

Because your spouse is adjusting status, then yes everything goes to the USCIS.

Sorry, I was unclear. I just meant when it comes time to fill out and compile all your paperwork for the I-864. You're correct that you will want to have everything all included in a nice large packet to send all together to the USCIS.

This is what the lady at USCIS told me :

Since my husband is here in the US....I need to file I-130 and he needs to file I-485 and send in both together.
Then she said the I-693, I-864 and I-130A can go in same package.
She said the I-765 and I-131 are optional, the 765 allows work and the 131 allows him to work here.

Does that all make sense?
