N/A and None Filing Question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've gone through the forms entirely and filled out any information that is relevant to my case. Now comes the question of which ones to leave blank and where to write N/A or None.

 

Here is an example from the I-130a for my spouse:

Their last occupation outside of the US is listed above. Naturally, I would assume you can leave this section blank. However, is it necessary to write N/A? If so, am I expected to write N/A in just the first field or all fields?

 

I don't want to overthink it but I remember when we were filing our CRBA for our child at the Consulate, one of the staff members called us back because we hadn't filled in the word "None" for the question about Names of Other Spouses. We both haven't been married before, so I assumed leaving that section blank would be obvious. 

I just want to be extra sure sending this off and avoiding delays. Thanks for any insight.

Understand that many questions are applicable, even though the answer is NONE.  If you enter NONE in the employer name field in your example, it is clear the rest of the spaces are N/A, so just leave them blank.  USCIS adjudicators and data entry people are not necessarily the sharpest pencils in the drawer but they are well trained and do their work while AWAKE.

Here's another one then:

 

My spouse's mother has no middle name. Should I write N/A or None in that section?

Imagine they think her middle name is None lol?

And I'm only half joking...

Again, the question is applicable and the answer is either ---- or No Middle Name.  By "write", you mean type in the PDF file, then save the file before printing, right?

Yes, I mean type. And, yes, I know how to save a PDF file. 

Thanks for your answers.
