  1. Thank you for your input. I greatly appreciate it, honestly. So to sum things up here, Would it be completely fine if I were to leave both Interpreter and Preparer sections of the I-130A BLANK if I am the one filling out the forms for my spouse? What I noticed on that form was it said "Information About You", "Information About Your Employment, etc.. I figured that the use of "You, Your" indicates the beneficiary is the one filling out the form. Therefore, I figured that I would need to be the interpreter and preparer.
  2. Sir there is a section on the i130a called "Spouse Beneficiary's Statement" that asks the Spouse Beneficiary to state if they have prepared the document or if someone else has interpreted and prepared the document. So my assumption is that the i130a is a document that's allocated solely to the Alien Spouse therefore anyone else that fills out the form will probably need to designate themselves as the interpreter or preparer even if it's the Petitioner of the I-130 because I am not sure if USCIS can just imply that it was the petitioner that filled out the I-130A if we leave all those sections blank on the I-130A. I would love to have your opinion regarding my assumption here. Please let me know what you think.
  3. Ok I will leave the section for Preparer blank on the I-130 Form but what about the I-130A Form?
  4. Ok so I will put myself as the Preparer of the I-130A BUT Would I need to put myself as the preparer for the I-130 Form as well because it says "If other than the Petitioner" (I'm the Petitioner)
  5. Are there any documents that I will include in the I-130 that I should have photocopies of to include again in future steps of the application process?
  6. Is there a way where I can sign up to get electronic updates such as emails or notification of the status of my I-130 and further documents?
  7. Hi. I am completing the forms I-130 and I-130A for my spouse. Should I put myself as the interpreter and preparer on both forms?
  8. I would love to pay with credit card! Can you tell me the process of doing this please? Is it Form G-1450?
  9. I am abroad and need to pay for my I-130 but not sure when and how to pay. I don't have a checkbook. I saw somewhere where it mentioned international bank draft or money order. I am not sure how I should go about doing this. Can someone take me through the process?
  10. On the I-130 checklist I do not see that it requires my spouse's birth certificate. However, an immigration lawyer sent an email to me listing the requirements for the I-130 package and it mentioned "beneficiary's birth certificate". I am not sure about this as I do not want to include unnecessary items in the package. Can anyone clarify this for me?
  11. Dear VisaJourney Community! My spouse and I currently live abroad together. I am a U.S. Citizen and so is our son. I want to move back to the USA with my spouse and our son. I have begun filling out the I-130 Form but there are some things that I am not quite 100% sure of and I need help with since I am the preparer of the form. 1. Is it okay that I am the preparer? I am not an attorney or an agent. Will that also mean that I would not need to fill out Part 8 (Preparer's Info, "if other than the petitioner) of the form. I also will not be using an interpreter so does that mean I can leave Part 7 (Interpreter's Info) blank as well? 2. I created a USCIS account but I was not provided with an Online Account number. Was this unnecessary of me to do so? Will I need this in the future possibly? 3. On Part 4 it says "The beneficiary is in the United States and will apply for adjustment of status to that of a lawful permanent resident at the USCIS office in..... then on the next section it says "The beneficiary will not apply for adjustment of status in the United States, but he or she will apply for an immigrant visa abroad at the U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate in... -------- So, I am pretty sure I am going to leave the first section blank because my spouse is not in the USA, but will I need to fill out the second section? Your help in this is greatly appreciated! Kind regards
