Adjustment of Status for Fiancee who isn't fluent in English

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

I'm thinking ahead here. My fiancee is planning to come up to the US from Brazil in about 3 months, we will be getting married 2 months after (within the 90 days).

 

She, the beneficiary, will have to sign the i-485. She knows some English but isn't really fluent in it.

 

I don't know anyone who could sign as an interpreter. Anyone know how I can find someone who could translate the i-485 for her and sign the English form as an interpreter?

 

Thanks.

5 months is a long time for a person to be "immersed in US culture."  A lot of people pick up English quickly, and there's a possibility that she won't need a translator with you helping her to understand the form.

 

If you fill out your profile and indicate the city where you live, you may get lucky and get a response from someone on this site who is near you and knows someone.

 

Otherwise, google "Portuguese translators and the name of your city/state" and that will probably give you a good start.

 

Good luck!

^^^^^^ Agree !!

 

I think that the OP is over-thinking this process. 我的中国妻子的语言甚至没有使用与大多数西方语言相同的字符集,但在我们两个人之间,我们能够成功地浏览所有的USCIS表格,因此没什么困难。(My Chinese wife's language doesn't even use the same character set as most Western languages, yet between the two of us we were able to successfuly navigate through all of the USCIS forms thusfar with little difficulty.) B-)

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.

How do the two of you communicate now ? Use the same method to help her understand the form.

before my wife came here on her K1, she used a lot of youtube videos to start learning english, there is a ton of tutors, learning lessons, courses that will help her with this. even now when she is at home and i am working she studies every day to learn faster.  you can fill it out as the preparer of the form, you shouldnt need an official translator for it as long as you sign off on it that way, there shouldnt be a problem
