I-129F Form Questions

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

My fiance & I are starting the process of doing our i-129f form for a k-1 visa and I had a few quick questions as we go through it. I hope this is an okay to post them...

 

1. For the Beneficiary's Parent's info, do we put my mothers current name or her maiden name? She was using her maiden name when I was born but has since been re-married.

2.  I haven't been in contact with my biological father for a very very long time. If I can't recall his birth year what do I do? Can I leave it blank, put in just his day/month? 

3. For beneficiaries employers, the PDF won't let me put PRESENT as an end date, I haven't given any notice at work and I have no current end date. Do I hand write in PRESENT or N/A or NONE for that area if I'm still currently employed?

4. A couple of the address sections say "Provide your/your beneficiary's current address first if it is different from the mailing address..." If my current address is NOT different from my mailing address do I skip to the Physical Address 2 and leave Physical Address 1 blank? Sounds silly but we're trying to follow it perfectly.

 

Thank you for any assistance you can provide!

1. Use her current legal name. If the parent is married now and has a different maiden name, then the married name is what's used. This applies even if the birth certificate was issued under the mother's maiden name.

2. You can give a best guess. Then in part 8 additional information, you can clarify that this is an estimate and the actual details are unknown.

3. put it by hand "present" or type it in with the PDF writer. This is a common issue.

4. Yes, click "yes" and you won't have to fill out the current physical address.

Normal Adobe or FoxIt are pdf readers. So you can fill in information that the form allows but it doesn't allow you to change anything outside of that.  A pdf writer like adobe acrobat or several free systems, allows you to write in what you'd like vs only what is allowed.

However it's perfectly fine to handwrite and type on the same form.

2. A best guess will be fine, no need to be exact for bday of father you aren’t in touch with. Just use the same bday in all forms moving forward. I wouldn’t even mention anything about best guess    that may only confuse them more.

 

3. You can handwrite “TO-DATE” or “PRESENT” after printing the filled out form OR you can simply type the date of the day you sign the form. It’ll mean the same thing.

Like the other helpful member said, a PDF writer is any feature on PDF that can write a text on the PDF itself. Normally, Adobe allows you to use it in the free reader version. So, see Adobe's features and use it to write the text "present" in the field. 

Alternatively, if this doesn't work for you for some reason, you're always free to hand write (with ink) the word "present" in the field.
