I am filling out form I-130A for my husband who is outside the US which is who I am petitioning for. 

 

Do I need to put my information under interpreter and prepearer or do I leave it blank ? Please help me because I am stuck on whether I should or shouldn’t

I dont know what you are trying to say but you are the petitioner and your husband is the beneficiary.

I hope this helps.

I know I am the petitioner. Form I-130A gets filled out by the beneficiary. 

 

My husband is the beneficiary that should be filling out the form but he is in a different country. So I am preparing the form for him.

 

My question is the following in Part 5 and Part 6 am I putting my information ?? Since I am the one filling it out since he can not sign in part 4 section 6a

No you have to let your husbands fill out that form and sign not you.

Both you and him will all have forms to fill.

My husband is OVER SEAS and can not sign the form states on the very first page on the top “if you reside overseas, you must still complete form I-130A, but you do not need to sign the form” 

 

But who ever prepares the form for the spouse beneficiary MUST SIGN. 

 

So once again my question is can I be the interpreter and the preparer or does it have to be someone else.. 

 

Obviously you don’t understand what I am saying when I am being pretty clear.

If your husband is overseas he wont need to sign.But that form is his to fill as there are alot of details he will be required to fill out and surely will do so again at the NVC stage.

But for now,he will fill them out but not sign.

You don't need to fill in the interpreter and preparer if you do it yourself.

It's fine to fill out the I-130a for him as long as you know all the answers are correct, you don't need to put yourself as the preparer. That's more for if you have paid someone else to prepare the documents for you, you don't have to put yourself there, it's N/A.

Blank is fine.  If you enter something, the answer to an applicable question can be "NONE".  NONE and N/A are not the same thing.

Thank you all for your advice! 

 

But I have another question my husband doesn’t speak not one word of English. I am translating as we go. And since we need to be 100% Honest can I put myself as the interpreter?
