14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm ready to mail my I-129 form together with other necessary documents. I just want to make sure that I'm not missing something here:

I-129 Form
1 each of 2x2 photo (me and fiance)
Copy of Cert of Naturalization
Intent to marry letter
Evidence of in-person meeting (photos, travel docs, etc)
$535 check

Mail it to:

USCIS
P.O. Box 660151
Dallas, TX 75266

That's it right?

 

Thank you.

Each of you are supplying a letter of intent to marry correct? Both say the same thing just reverse the names essentially. Can be signed and scanned by the beneficiary.

 

As for meeting, main things are passport stamps showing entry/exit of their country(or 3rd party country if that is the case), receipts, hotel receipt, any credit card statement from purchases, flight tickets/itenerary, ect.

I'm glad you asked, I only have one letter prepared. I will have my fiance create another letter with names reversed and signed, scan and send to me via email.

I have passport stamps showing I visited her in December 2016 and spent 45 days together, bank statement and credit card statement showing transactions, and of course, photos together, but those doesn't have date stamps. I can edit them to have date shown on the bottom. Or I'd rather not?

I wouldn’t put anything on the photos themselves. When my USC fiancé and I did ours, we put a caption beneath each photo with the date and location it was taken, and who was pictured (i.e. xxx, left and xxx, right). Good luck!

Just to echo @Teacake, I tapped two photos per piece of construction paper so I could write beside them the date. I group my photos by 1st trip to Mozambique, 2nd trip to Mozambique, etc.

How did you put a caption? You mean on the back of the photo you wrote down the date and names?

We used digital photos that had been uploaded to the computer. We compiled them into a Word doc. and typed a caption beneath each one. We had around 2 photos per page because they were pretty big and printed in colour on regular printer paper.

I did edit the pics with the dates at the bottom of  the pics.I used  photogrid app on my phone.it's really easy to edit pics. We don't have any problems getting petition approved. Some of the pics were taken by a camera so they got dates on them but most were taken by my smart phone.There weren't any date could be shown on the pics.That's why I needed to edit the dates

A cover letter is important! List, on it, everything you are including and arrange them in that order.
