Hi Guys

 

Thank you for reading this. I'd like to ask for your help about online form of I-130.

 

My husband(🇺🇸) and I(🇯🇵) are trying to reapply I-130 online because USCIS denied our previous due to RFE submission overdue even we clearly respond within due date!!!

So this time, we decided to reapply online because we don't want  them to lost anymore documents...

Anyways, we have several question about I-130 online form but some questions are slightly different from paper version so I want to be more careful to answer it.

Please give  your advice how we can respond those questions.

 

Q1: Was beneficiary EVER in the United States.

    >>  I've visited US many time but as a tourist with Visa Favor program. So I think my answer is "YES"

          Is my understanding correct??

 

Q2: Was the beneficiary EVER in immigration proceedings?

   >> What's the definition of " immigration proceedings"??

        We applied I-130 once yes but our previous case was denied due to above reason and 

        I've never been deported and never had experience of immigration court hearing.

       Is my previous I-130 filling inclueded in "immigration proceedings"? 

       I get so confused YES or NO which answer we should pick😢

 

Q3: What was the beneficiary's class of admission?

   >> A similar question in paper version but there is a introductory remark and said " If the beneficiary is currently in US, complete Item Number 46.a-d.

       I was in Japan when we filed last time so we just typed N/A last time but ... how should we answer for this time??

 

Q4: What is the beneficiary's Form I-94 Arrival-Departure Record number?

  >> Same as Q3. I was in Japan when we filed last time so we just typed N/A  but how should i answer for this time ??

       Should I type "N/A" or type my last entry to us and explain the reason in additional comment section??

 

Q5: What was the beneficiary's date of arrival?

  >> Related to Q3&Q4, how should I answer this question.

 

Q6: When does the beneficiary's authorized stay expire?

  >> Related to Q3, Q4&5, how should I answer this question too.....??😰

 

I really really appreciate if you guys give some advice!!!

1. Yes.

2.No

3. Visa waiver

4. 5. 6. On the paper form, it is pretty straightforward that if the beneficiary is in the State then you will answer these questions. But on the online version, you can answer the last time you was in the US.

 

Good luck.

Select "Yes".

Select "No".  Having a denied petition does not count as being in immigration proceedings.

 

For the following questions, enter "N/A" or "Not Applicable" --

 

Q3: What was the beneficiary's class of admission?

Q4: What is the beneficiary's Form I-94 Arrival-Departure Record number?

Q5: What was the beneficiary's date of arrival?

Q6: When does the beneficiary's authorized stay expire?

 

Note that the I-130 form instructions apply to both the paper form and the online form.  So questions Q3 to Q6 listed above only apply if the beneficiary is currently in the US.

 

When submitting I-130 online, the information provided gets converted into a PDF file of a filled-out I-130 form (excluding the Additional Information section which is saved as a separate PDF).  Before you submit online, make sure to check the case snapshot to get a preview of how the adjudicator will see your information.

Hi Guys

 

Thank you for reading this.

I'd like to hear your advice about "how I should explain our previous I-130 case which was denied due to submission over due of RFE".

 

My husband  responded their RFE( his US passport copy) on time but it seemed that they lost the package he sent and they denied our case.

He didn't keep any receipt or tracking number so we decided to star over again online.

 

We are planning to submit our history of relationship essay with our photos and chat log as an evidence of our relationship.

And ... the problem is how i should explain our previous I-130 application. we got denied by USCIS's mistake but i don't think it's good idea to describe that part in our essay.

But YES! we applied once and got denied so i need to be honest and describe how we spend and live separately while waiting our first I130 was being processed.

 

Just describe RFE part calmly and objectively or don't mentioned that part and describe our daily conversation or event we experienced....??

Which do you think is better and safer ??

There's really no need to open up multiple topics regarding your I-130. Your husband petitioned you, RFE got lost and now you're reapplying.  Just follow the regular steps and answer the questions asked on the form and you'll be fine. I'll merge this thread with your existing one.
