Form I-129F inquiry

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. This forum is really helpful, it answered most of my questions. Thank you so much. I did my best to go through topics but so far I'm on the 25th page and I'm still reading...

Anyway, we are in the process of gathering everything and I have a few (silly) questions just to be sure so your help would be appreciated.

 

1. I have seen different ways on how people prepared their packet. Will it be fine if we submitted ours in a clear book or even just clear book sleeves so it will be organized? (Photo attached)Image result for clearbook sleeves

 

If not, I would just do it with paperclips.

 

2. I read some people who filled out the Form I-129F on Adobe and just printed and wrote down with pen whatever they can't fill out digitally. Did anyone encounter a problem doing this?

 

3. I live with relatives still, is it necessary to put someone's name on "In Care Of" part when it comes to the physical address section?

 

4. I had multiple jobs in 2017 but I don't remember when my specific last date of employment was. How should I deal with this?

 

5. I read that Form G-325A is no longer a requirement. However, I read some posts and watched some videos of people who recently applied for it and still included this form. Would it hurt if I choose to include it just to be sure? 

 

6. Should we include copies of W-2, pay stubs, and certificate of employment in this packet already?

 

Thank you so much for taking your time to answer and I apologize if these questions have been asked before. God bless!

1. Paper clips. That book is too much of a hassle for them. They have to take everything out and scan it, please use paperclips.

2. I have filled out every form from I-129F to ROC where I typed in what I could and wrote the rest in with Black Pen.

3. If you normally receive mail there then you should be fine, if you don't put it in.

4. Do your best. If at the minimum you can remember the month range you should be fine.

 

5. Don't submit.

 

6. Nope. This is something that you will be providing at the interview phase, which will be when your fiance is interviewing in their home country. This could take place a year from now, and you want to make sure all of the information you send your fiance is as current as possible (within a couple of months of interview).

It's fine, but if you can't fill out what you need to in Acrobat Reader, make sure you have not missed a checkbox. You should be able to fill in anything you need to.

 

Despite the instructions saying to write "N/A" or "none" in spaces that aren't applicable, there are no issues with leaving fields blank when the form won't let you fill them in if they truly are not applicable (or at least it was fine for us).

Hi, thank you so much for taking the time to answer! 

I'm the beneficiary and I was in the US for a year as a J1 intern, do you think it is necessary to include copies of my visa and other documents? I did not overstay.

 

Thank you so much and I apologize for not including this in my post.

Thank you so much for sharing this! I was worried about this as well.

1. Paper clips. 

 

2. Everything can be done in PDF. Even the signature.  I did everything in PDF and signed by hand.  

 

3. That depends on your mail carrier. Some will refuse to deliver mail not addressed to the name on the mail box. If it has been working for you so far, great.    

 

4. Omit the day and month and hope for no RFE.  

 

5. I didn’t include one. 

 

6. No.
