Couple of general questions (i-129f)

Recommended Posts

I really appreciate all the help ive gotten here. I have been trying to figure out a couple of things, and I haven't found a definitive answer yet.

 

First, the passport style photos. Obviously getting mine (petitioner) is easy. But what am I supposed to do for the beneficiary? Can she scan it and I can print a copy, or does it HAVE TO be an original for the photo? I imagine I can find someplace to print it on photo paper if I had a scanned copy, but I am not sure if this is allowed? I had also read it needed to be signed and dated on the back, is this accurate? If so seems like the only option is to have it mailed to me?

 

Also, she has a divorce certificate that is in russian. I saw that they won't need it translated for her interview portion since it'll be in Russia, but what about for the i-129f, do I need to get a translated copy? Or can I submit just the original? ( I know photo copies are accepted for this document).

 

 

Again, thank you all so much for your help!!!

Hi,  when we submitted our i-129f, I (the beneficiary), took a passport picture and only asked for a digital version, which i send over to my fiance in the US via email so he can print at the place he took his passport picture. I hope this makes sense.
For the divorce certificate I have no idea:/

Good Luck with the process :)

Yes a scanned copy is ok, you can have it printed at drugstores, kinkos etc. just make sure it complies with the photo requirements per USCIS

Here is what I saw on the instructions when I was going through: 

 

Page two, towards the bottom: "Translations. If you submit a document with information in a foreign language, you must also submit a full English translation. The translator must sign a certification that the English language translation is complete and accurate, and that he or she is competent to translate from the foreign language into English. The certification should also include the date, the translator’s signature and printed name, and may contain the translator’s contact information."

 

Here is the link to the instructions for the k1.

As far as the passport photos, I actually had him send originals of them to me in the mail.  When it came to the passport photos, I wanted to make sure there couldn't be any issues with that, so I had him send them along with his wet signature letter of intent.  As far as a signature being required on the back of the photos, the only thing that the above link states is "Using a pencil or felt pen, lightly print your name and A-Number (if any) on the back of the photo." That is located on page 11, at the top.  

Hope this helps a little :D 


If we can survive the distance, we can survive the paperwork! ;)
