Intent of Marry

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! 

 

This is Cristopher! Last September I sent my fiancee's visa K1 application and today I received a letter saying that they need more documents from me. The intent of Marry is one of them so I was reading and seems that I need to send to them a statement where it needs to say that she is going to get married in 90 days, and I think I have to do the same. I can't prove any wedding ceremony because I do not know when she is coming.  The other things that they need from me is a passport picture and my US Citizenship (things that I did not know that I have to send too).

 

Anyway, so my question is this: Do you recommend me to send pictures as proves because last January I went to visit her and we went to Machu Picchu, Peru, and I proposed to her. So I have a few pictures where she is wearing her ring.  

We did not do any ceremony, nothing like that we just went to Machu Picchu to visit. 

 

How long does it take to them to process these new documents? and What are the chances of getting approved quickly? 

 

Thank y'all!

What DID you send with the petition?  Proof of US citizenship, letters of intent to marry, and passport photos are listed in the instructions as requirements, so I find it weird that you didn’t know?

 

Anyway, follow the RFE exactly.  Send just what they ask for.  Include a covering letter and a copy of the RFE.  

 

As stated above, nothing in immigration is fast, but hopefully for you, once they have the missing documents, they can adjudicate it quickly and you can not be set back too far.

Oh, how you did miss a few of the absolute required documents?

 

Here's the link to the instructions:

https://www.uscis.gov/system/files_force/files/form/i-129finstr.pdf?download=1

Evidence for Petitions to Classify a Fiancé(e) as a K-1 Nonimmigrant In addition to the evidence described above, you must submit evidence of:

"A. Intention to Marry Within 90 Days of Entry. Submit evidence that you and your fiancé(e) intend to marry within 90 days of your fiancé(e)’s entry as a K-1 nonimmigrant. Evidence of your intention to marry may include statements of intent to marry signed by both you and your fiancé(e) or any other evidence that establishes, by a preponderance of the evidence, your mutual intention;"

 

"Photographs

"You must submit one color passport-style photograph of yourself and one color passport-style photograph of the beneficiary taken within 30 days of filing this petition"

 

"Evidence of U.S. citizenship which may include any of the following:

A. A copy of your birth certificate issued by a U.S. civil authority;

B. A copy of your original Certificate of Naturalization;

C. A copy of your original Certificate of Citizenship;

D. A copy of your Form FS-240, Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States;

E. A copy of your valid, unexpired U.S. passport or passport card issued with a validity period of at least five years; or

F. A statement executed by a U.S. consular officer certifying that you are a U.S. citizen and the bearer of a currently valid U.S. passport."

 

As others have said, send them exactly what they have asked for.

With the passport picture did they ask for only your passport picture? Because with I-129F both petitioner and beneficiary passport photos are required.

The needed documents and a sample of the intent to marry is available in the guides.  Yes you can also send in the new pics and trip info just make sure you send every item they asked for!

Processing time for your RFE info just depends. No one can tell you for sure how long it will be.

There's nothing fast about immigration process; you slowed down the process for yourself more by not reading the instructions well before sending your petition. Just make sure going forward you are on point with the rest of the process so not slow your progress even some more. Good luck.

Yes, it says only a picture of me (passport - style).

No chance of getting it quickly.  Send in the exact info they requested and begin waiting. 

 

You are lucky they sent a RFE instead of just denying the petition.

I reccomend you do some serious research into this process. How you failed to include such key documents is beyond me especially with the wealth of information available to you.

 

Provide what has been asked of you and nothing more, RFE's can add a few months to the already lengthy and expensive process. Learn from this and be better prepared for the  next steps 

 

Good luck.

No, I did not. 

Dude.  Download the instructions/checklist for the I-129F from the USCIS website.  Look it over, and then come back with questions about the bits you don’t understand.    The ability to read and comprehend forms and instructions is a vital part of immigration.
