10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just looked over the IR1 application and I don't quite understand the differences between the following vocabulary in the application's context. If anyone could help me define and differentiate between these terms i'd really appreciate it. 

 

  • Petitioner 
  • Beneficiary
  • Interpreter
  • Preparer
  • Domicile
  • Affidavit

To make it basic:

 

Petitioner - the USC or LPR

Beneficiary - the foreigner

Interpreter - someone who explained the questions to you in your native language, if you are not fluent in English.

Preparer - someone (normally a lawyer) who filled out the forms for you.

Domicile - the country that you treat as your permanent home, or lives in (taken from the dictionary)

Affidavit - a written letter/statement saying whatever is in the letter is the truth.

Thanks for answering. A couple more questions if you have the time. What is "the USC or LPR"? ... Also, what if I don't need an "interpreter" because I know English and what if don't need a "preparer" because I will fill out the forms on my own, would I just leave those two sections blank?

You can just put N/A in those sections.   I would recommend (even if you are not using them as a preparer) having an attorney or an experienced preparer look over your finished product.

I left the interpreter and preparer sections blank, but some put N/A in those fields.  You will still have to include those pages with your application when sending it in though, even if you leave those sections blank, so don't forget that.

 

USC - United States Citizen

LPR - Legal Permanent Resident

 

I normally don't suggest lawyers for simple form filing, however you may want to consider having someone look over your application/evidence before you send it in....or at the very least continue to post in this thread should you have any questions on what sort of documentation is required/confusion over what a question is specifically asking you.
