Where can I include a previous sponsorship of my ex on the I-129F when I filed a I-130 for him in the past?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am starting to feel like I am posting excessively but I am eager to finish my paperwork and can use all the help I can get!

 

First: The only mention of any previous petition on this form is on page 4, part 1, items 43 through 47. The question 43 asks: "Have you ever filed Form I-129F for any other beneficiary?" 
The answer is no; HOWEVER,  I filed an I-130 (spouse petition) for my ex-husband when I was married to him.

Second: It goes on to say "If you answered 'Yes' to Item number 43., provide the responses to Item Number 44. - 46. for each previous beneficiary," which obviously I'm not going to fill out because I didn't answer 'yes'

Third: I was wondering if I should include the information (his A number, type of visa petition filed [I-130], and the date filed) on the Part 8. Additional Information referencing Page 3, Part 1, Item 37?

No, the I-130 is not part of the multiple filer concept for the I-129F. The only time you'll have to disclose that you sponsored your ex will be in the I-134  Affidavit of Support where it asks about "previous petitions" or "previous sponsorship". For now, you won't have to list your ex as sponsorship. You will list your ex on the "previous marriage" section.


I learned the hard way, I hope YOU don't have to. Advice: learn, learn, learn.

Okay! Do you think I would still be okay to list under the section 8 of additional information? I know that the I-134 will be handed in by my fiance at the Interview stage of the process and that'll be kind of late in the game at that time. It couldn't hurt right?

Sure, you're welcome to include additional information on your ex being a cr1/ir1 recipient. However, I don't think that will matter to anyone at this point. But it will not hurt to disclose that. I guess their main concern is to make sure you're free to marry and legally divorced at this point. You should be able to prove that despite the location your ex originated from.

Perfect! Thank you so much :) I am planning on including my divorce decree with my I-129F paperwork. I appreciate your response!

Planning?  It's required so not much planning needed 


YMMV
