Preparing K1 Packet Together with Beneficiary

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

My fiance is coming to the US to visit me and we were thinking of working on the packet together. Is this allowed or am I solely supposed to be doing it myself? Would there be any problems if, for example, he was the one to write captions on the back of our photos or write annotations on our evidence?

 

Also another question...if my fiance is currently in the US as a visitor (just for 2 weeks) while we submit the packet, do we have to provide an I-94 Arrival-Departure Record Number (question 38 on I-129F)?

 

Thanks!

Of course it's allowed.  If you submit while she is in the USA then you respond to the question accordingly


YMMV

We did that too! We submitted the I-94 arrival/departure record with the packet - but mainly as supplemental to show his visits to the US to match our photo/receipt/ticket evidence because it's a good solid official documentation of it since we don't have passport stamps. If you answer the question "yes" for is the beneficiary in the US - you should probably include the I-94. We put "no" for that answer even though he was in the US visiting for a few days when we mailed the packet off together, but signature and date on the completed I-129f was when he was not in the U.S., which also matched the dates for the submitted I-94 anyway (maybe a week or two before the actual date we put it in the mail). 

 

They are easy to pull up online so definitely include it if you are worried. If beneficiary is just visiting for a bit - include a little supplement with the I-129f explaining exactly the situation...i.e. he is currently in the U.S. visiting for x amount of days, with the I-94 showing the date he entered. If he is on ESTA maybe include the date he is supposed to leave by to show he hasn't overstayed.
