Letter of intent signature

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all, my fiance is living in Nicaragua and I'm trying to get this packet done asap, I'm pregnant... And we really want to be together as soon as we can. Anyways, where he lives he does not have access to a computer or printer. When I send in the letters of intent, can his be a handwritten and signed image he sends to me via messenger? They also don't have postal service where he lives (remote island) so this is very difficult and confusing to say the least. Any help is greatly appreciated

It can be electronic, but I personally would go with a messenger message.   He should do a well written, formal (business style) letter which he signs and dates.   

 

It can be hand-written as long as it is completely legible, I would say.

Hand written, dated and signed by him in English  is fine.  

 

He then takes a photo of the ENTIRE sheet of paper and sends it you via messenger or whatever.  

 

You then crop it down, print, and submit it with your 128-f. 

 

Wet signstures from him are not needed for this atep. 

 

For his convenience, after this, type up the statement, leave blank fields for date and signature, and  send him several copies.  Each time he is asked for proof of binaries rraltiinshoo he signs and dates a statement.  Letters of intent should be signed early and often.

OK awesome! Thank you for the info. They don't have mail in Nicaragua especially where he lives so I am unable to send ANYTHING. However, I am going to go see him next month and I'm going to try to bring everything that he may or may not need for the rest of the process. For the letters of intent, the standard template I've been seeing on this forum is fine, correct?

Beats me. Reference it and I can tell you. 

 

What worked for my fiancée  was:

 

To whom it may concern:

 

I, <<<name-of-beneficiary>>>, the Beneficiary, intend to marry, Kirstenv, Petitioner, within 90 days of my entry into the USA as a K-1 nonimmigrant.  

 

<<<Signature>>>

 

name-of-beneficiary. 

 

Date of signature: yyyy-mm-dd

I would suggest you bring some of those letters of intent for him to sign and have those on hand just in case the one you get from him initially doesn't work since you are going there to see him anyway! Never hurts to plan/be prepared for the unexpected

 

My husband printed his stuff at an internet cafe and sent me the letters of intent via the closest fedex office along with some passport sized photos, though not sure that's an option since I think the only fedex location is in Managua. Bring extras to the states when he comes as you'll need them for Adjustment of Status/Greencard process. Cheaper to get them down there.

 

A heads up for you: he will need to plan to have his birth certificate and Singleness Certificate from Central Registry in Managua. I had my husband get 3 birth certificates to have them on hand here in the states. Can't remember if the singleness certificate has an expiration date of 6 months like the police certificate does or not. 

 

Some other members dealing with the process may have copies of the packet 4; the embassy emailed me a copy after I requested it. Some info may have changed since 2016 on the copy i have. Don't be shy to message one of the other members dealing with Nicaragua to see if they can send you a copy. 

                        

Good luck! If you have any questions on the k1 process, let me know or someone. This forum is a wealth of knowledge and full of people willing to help where they can!

Thank you so much! And yes I am so lost and I've only just begun to fill our these forms. So many questions... Such as address?? He can't send or receive mail... I don't know what I should put for mailing address, let alone address in general. Where he lives there are no roads. No cars. Nothing. I met him while I was backpacking and was trying to get far away from the cities haha.

The courier system pretty much doesn't exist in all Nicaragua. The only things I've seen are PO Boxes and expats usually are the ones that have those. Put however he would tell someone. my husband's was something like "primavera colonia 2.5 blocks north, 25 varas to the south". the folks at the embassy know that mail doesn't happen in Nicaland nor will they be sending anything via mail.

I thought the letter of intent to marry had to be a wet signature? Not sure why a photocopy would be acceptable. I have heard from a ton of people that they received an RFE for a wet signature in black ink because it looked too much like a photocopy. They then sent in the two letters of intents to marry with blue signatures and were approved.

Really?  Hmm.  In my nearly 3 years on VJ I have not seen anyone say they've gotten an RFE for this reason, let alone a "ton" of people.

Scanned is fine. That's what I did.
