Address and Employment History questions

I am working on the I-129 form to petition my fiancé from Spain.

 

Background:

I have questions about the address and employment history because I just graduated University a year and a half ago. I had summer internships 3 different times, studied abroad 3 different times, moved to 6 different addresses during college (mostly 1 semester duration) and was employed by 8 different companies, sometimes more than one at a time. Not to mention my home address where my parents live where I spent time in between semesters if I wasn't traveling or working elsewhere. 

 

1.  

Do I need to list every address, even if I only lived there a couple months?

 

2. 

Does #1 depend on if I had signed a lease?

 

3. 

Do I list every job even if it was only a few months? 

 

4. 

Do I only list jobs that were associated with my SSN?

 

5. 

When it asks the countries/states I have resided in since my 18th birthday, does that only apply to places I have resided more than 6 months? 

 

6. 

Will I be asked to provide police records from these countries or is that only for the beneficiary? 

 

Thank you so much for any help!

If it is for the beneficiary, they will provide it later.

Even if the unemployment period was a couple weeks/months between different jobs? 

 

As far as under the table question: I worked for my Aunt and Uncle a couple times as a contractor. But they always payed me via check/cash and said that they've never put my SSN on any documents. 

 

Thank You!

You need to show continuous residency and work histories.  We used month and year.   Think of it like your resume.  Mine had about 12 companies and even more living addresses

Okay thank you so much. 

 

When you attach the additional information pages, did you try to format it as similarly to their part 8 as possible? or as long as you list the page/part/item number it is good. Also, what is the item number for additional addresses and employers? If I have multiple do I start with part number 9 then 10, 11, 12 etc. or is it all the same part number? Just to be clear, the updated I-129 form is item 9a-h for your first physical address and then item 10a & b for the to/from dates. 

 

Also, if I lived at an address for a few months, moved, then lived at the previous address again later, do I put the first address two different times? Or can I have two to/from non-consecutive dates for one address?

Also, if I was classified as an 'independent contractor' and not an employee, do I still list it? 

Yes.  Don't over think these forms.....They are literal.
