I-129F General questions

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello people from VJ! So glad I have found these resourceful web site. I have read many topics regarding the I-129F, however I do have some other questions. I am a US citizen close to file I-130 for my mom and I-129F for my fiancé, this last one, was with me for 5 months here in the US and came back to his country because his visa was cancelled by Department of State. Now he does not have any criminal/deportation notice. My questions are:

1. Can I file both petition at the same time?

2. Do I have to send I-864 AOS at the same time as I-130?

3. Should we submit proof of having no problems re-entering the US, provided by CBP? He was issued a I-275 Withdrawal of Application for Admission at POE. 

4. Would there be any problems if I got into a relationship with him (even though I wasn't legally divorced)?

5. I make annually about $21700, would that be enough to petition for both? I am the head of household with no dependents, it's just me.


Thank you so much for your time and answers, have a good one. 😃

  1. Yes
  2. I-864 will be sent to NVC after I-130 approval for the parent. An I-134 will need to be sent to the beneficiary when they get to the interview stage for the K-1.
  3. No need...it's not requested and they already know.
  4. A couple points...
    1. You cannot petition for a fiance until you have a final divorce decree and both of you are free to marry at the time the petition is filed through entering on the visa.
    2. Whether or not it would be viewed negatively depends on the circumstances. If you were separated for a year or years when you met, that's likely not going to be looked upon unfavorably. If you were still legally married or very recently separated, it could look suspicious and increase scrutiny of the relationship.
  5. Not both. See the I-864p for income guidelines: https://www.uscis.gov/i-864p
    1. You may need a joint sponsor to help with either or both cases. The CO makes a decision on the public charge concern based on the totality of the evidence. There are people that have been denied *due to public charge concern) who make over $200k. There are people who have been approved making the bare minimum listed in the link.
