15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I’m filling out application and needed help with question #53...we met twice within the past year and so I just needed to know when typing up my statement as to when, where etc. of our meetings..it doesn’t need to be too long right? Or just when, where and receipts of hotel and flight itineraries?

The "How we met" can be a seperate sheet if you want it to be. Just put "See attachment #". On the sheet itself just can say like "We met online in 20**.. We chatted for so long until we met for the first time at _____ for so long. The we met again a year later or whatnot".

 

That's all it needs to be really. If you specify a dating site, it it isn't a commonly known one, you may want to attach that sites TOS right off as people have gotten RFE's for the TOS of some sites that aren't well known.

If your answer is longer than can fit on the space provided on the form, maybe you should rethink your answer


YMMV

Don't ####### up your application with useless things.  If they really wanted it they would require it.

 

 

 

Or risk an RFE and a delay. People do get RFE's for these things. Hence why specified if it's a non well known site. Something like Facebook, OkCupid, or whatever are known places. But there are some not so known sites or even religious sites that raise eyesbrows.

You can get an RFE for *anything*.  But TOS from a dating website is just  they will never read.  There are a few interviews with USCIS agents and they all say they same thing:  be complete but cut out the cruft.  I mean some people even though that putting pre-punched holes for the binders would help the process.  lol no.  

 

And please get rid of that gif.. its like half the screen.

No.

 

Nothing ever really goes away online, so out of date guides and videos are all over the internet. But the biographic info form is not needed for I-129F petitions and has not been for years.

So glad I asked! Yes, as you can see what I’ve been referencing online is outdated! Can you tell me where I can get a more up to date I129f checklist please
