(I-130A) Address History (9 addresses) & Employment History Questions

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good Evening!

 

I am currently working on filling out my I-130A form and have a couple of questions regarding both the address and employment history.

 

For context, I am a German national currently on F1 OPT in the U.S.

 

I have 9 different addresses for the past 5 years, so I have to utilize "Part 7. Additional Information" to list them all. 

In the Part 7 section, it asks to indicate Page Number, Part Number, and Item Number.

 

Since it is additional information to the Address History (Part 1 Information About You), Page Number and Part Number are obvious. But what about Item Number? Since I am not providing additional information in reference to an address I listed above, but rather adding an entire new address. 

 

And do I simply just put the address into the text box (i.e., line 1 street name, line 2 city + state + zip, line 3 country, line 4 dates)?

 

Also, my permanent address has been and is my German home address throughout the entire time; for "Date To (mm/dd/yyyy)" is it correct to indicate "Present"? 

 

Does this work the exact same way with my employment history? (11 positions in the past 5 years, including part time and summer jobs)

 

Thank you guys so much!

Use the item number that starts out the part you are answering even if that's not the sequence and then title it "Physical Address 3" or "Physical Address 4" etc so they can see the sequence in your answer. Lay it out in the same format as the original question in the text box leaving out boxes that you have left blank because they are not applicable.

Yes. Indicate "Present" and hand write it in with blank ink if you have to.

Same with employment. "Employer 3" etc.

I cannot figure out the date of one of the addresses when I moved from one place into another. I have the month and year. Is that good enough or should I put in my best guess?

Best guess or check your FB for updates for "yay new place" or your bank statements for setting up utility bills/paying damage deposit?

Unfortunately, I've never used FB like this. I did try to check my bank statements, but it would let me go back only a couple of years (the address change was in 2014)..

Ask friends/family too? They might remember too.

I was able to narrow it down a little more, but it would still be a best guess. The user 'Paul & Mary' from above said month/year is good enough. Is it better than a best guess, in your opinion?

Year and month is fine but it sounded like you were scrambling for that even which is why i suggested what I did.
