  1. My fiancee's mother passed away when she was a child and she has no relationship with her father, she is not even sure of his full name, DOB or current residence. What she we put for both of these instances and will this raise a flag for us?
  2. So here's a weird question that my fiance and I are not even sure where to begin answering. He has a full, red beard. He works at a hospital and they are about to switch his ward over to a 'red zone' for Covid-19 patients. He was told that he would have to shave off his beard and has no problem with that what so ever, it's so his mask will seal properly as he will be working in direct contact with corona patients. Our question is this: when we originally took the pictures for his medical (4) and embassy requirement (2) he has that full beard. Our NOA2 is in tansit to the embassy and god willing that will open up interviews again in the next few months, however that won't be enough time for him to grow his beard back out. Do we re-take the photos for the embassy (the medical already has the bushy ones) or do we just explain at the time of interview the circumstances? He looks quite different with and without a beard. any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Stay safe out there!
  3. I received the NVC case #, and they told me it was assigned on 03/18/20. not sure when it is sent out and they could not give me that information, but I told my fiancé to do the DS-160 which is what I believe is part of the next step. but now im confused again, and im not sure if I read somewhere that If I had to do the DS-160 as well or is it just the beneficiary? also once we have that confirmation # what else if anything needs to be done to get an interview date? Thank for your help.
  4. Hello Berries!! I thought I'd start the new September 2018 129f thread. Best of luck to all new filers Currently it takes at least 6 months to receive the NOA2 for I-129F. One of the useful tools that the US petitioner should sign up for is the USPS Informed Delivery: https://informeddelivery.usps.com/box/pages/intro/start.action. Update your VJ timeline so that others could answer your queries more appropriately. New site:https://myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov/ Once you have your WAC you can create an account in the webpage! Good luck and welcome to your new virtual Family! Feel free to ask !

  6. Hello! Just want to ask if anyone of you met their fiancé thru Facebook group page? And they mentioned that Facebook group in their 34a, letter how we met.. We didn't attach the terms and conditions in our packet.. But we're worried now, because some says we should have attached it.. But before we sent it, I asked 2 of my friends if it is required, they said no.. I'm so confused ?? anyone of you here got an rfe because of it? Or anyone of you stated the Facebook page and did not attach the Terms and conditions but still approved? Thaaaank you! ?
  7. Hello community, Just curious as to which petitions get transferred from the California SVC to the Vermont SVC. I understand, that it could be related to the criminal history. However, what is the common denominator for the cases that are transferred. I read somewhere on here that only petitions with criminal history/ arrests that fall under AWA get transferred for further investigation. Is that true?
  8. Hello all, This is our first post here but I was curious if you could help us with a couple of concerns of ours. In preparing for the interview my fiancee noticed a discrepancy in the information we gave for work history in the I-129F form. In the original form, which we submitted last June of 2019, we gave approximate dates for work history and residence history (e.g. 11/15/2017-present for current employment). Since that time, and in preparing the DS-160 form, we now have more accurate work history information (i.e. 11/06/2017-present for the same example). Our question is what would be the best way to handle this during the interview? I assume we will have to put the most accurate dates that we have on the DS-160 form, but is there a proper way to handle the correction? Also, given the rest of our relationship and financial evidence is fairly robust, will this cause a significant delay in obtaining an approval for the K-1 visa? Also, we were notified that our petition was received by the U.S. embassy in her country on 11/29/19. Today is 1/25/20 and we have spent the past two months collecting the rest of our evidence and records required for the interview. We are planning to schedule the interview for sometime mid-February. Is 2-3 months between reception by the embassy and the date of interview still an acceptable time-frame? Thank you so much in advance for your help. Any advice is appreciated.
  9. Hey, so a few days ago I submitted my I-129F package and it arrived at the Dallas Lockbox yesterday (now to wait until Tuesday for it to be picked up). The problem is.. I realized I forgot to include the photos of my fiancee and I together in our package! The baggie of photos is sitting on my desk! There are quite a few threads from 2010 - 2014 regarding this issue, and many users said that they did not submit photos together and were still approved. Do you guys think this will be an issue? I included boarding passes to and from, passport stamps, bus receipts, apartment receipts, and our engagement ring receipt. Just to be clear: I mean photos of us together, not the passport style photos. I included those. A lot of things have changed for the I-129F process over the years, so I wanted to hear some more modern opinions. Thanks in advance!
  10. hi! I am in the process of filling out my i-129f form and I have 2 questions 1) during the past 5 years required to list employment history, i have gone to 2 universities. do I have to list these as employment history? i can’t seem to find the answer on this 2) i worked as a community support worker for a family in which i was a self employed contractor, how do I put this on my employment history? Thank you so much!
  11. Hi everyone ! Quick summary to get an idea of our journey so far ; we've met on the internet in around June/July 2017 and have been in a relationship for 2 years now chatting/skype/etc... basically every day. I went to visit 3 times, the latest trip lasted 3 months and allowed me to finally meet her family. Now that I am done with my obligations in France, we've decided to get to work and file an I-129F form for a foreign fiance. We have extensive proof of our relationship (be it online chat, friends, families, photos, you name it), but we're still extremely stressed about it, as you can imagine, and very worried about getting denied because we did something wrong while filling out the document. There are some very specific sections that leave us very confused as to how we should answer, and wondered if anyone could help us figure things out. 1) Address history ; as part of my studies, I went to the UK 3 years ago, for a 4 and a half months long internship, and had to rent an accommodation during this period. Considering that this place was a rent (through AirBnB to be precise), does that count as a physical address that should be provided in this form ? 2) Address move-in date ; in the same section, is required the date from/to we've stayed at a specific address. Considering that neither me nor my family have any clue as to what the specific day we moved in our current house is (no documents stating that, family basically decided to move in on a whim), the question is as follows ; how do I fill in this section when the only information we have is the month and year. 3) Internship = Work ? ; related to our first question, are internships considered employment, and hence need to be on the form ? 4) Maiden and Spouse name ; when filling in the information on my parents, I stumbled upon the simplest doubt. When asked for my mother's Family Name (last name), should I provide her maiden name, or her spouse name ? 5) N/A "complications" ; Do we leave blank any areas that don't let you fill in N/A due to character restrictions on the form ? Sounds to us like an automatic red flag to leave a section empty, so we're not sure what we should do. We sincerely appreciate anybody that would take the time to read this and could helps us out.
  12. Hello everyone, I am in the process of completing my K1 application and would like to get some input from the community. I have 2 last name - On my passport they’re written completely as Aron Jimenez Guzman (made up name) but on other documents Such as Tax transcripts, Bank letter, Work verification letter I only go with my first last name Aron Jimenez. Some documents have both and others don’t. Would this be an issue when submitting my K-1 application or should I list my short name (Aron Jimenez) as part of question 7a “Other names used”? Thanks, AJ
  13. While filing my I-129f I have hit a road block and can’t seem to find a clear answer anywhere. Under the criminal record section of the petition, it is unclear as to whether or not I should provide information regarding the two (non felony) DUI’s on my criminal record. These are fairly recent, from 2016 and 2017. As I interpret it, they must only be included if there are 3 or more drug or alcohol related offenses on the usc petitioners record. Can this be confirmed? I’m sure it’s best to be safe and provide the info, but I don’t want to add extra steps, as the process is already complex. If I should provide further information regarding the offenses, any advice on the documents I should provide and how to properly include them would be greatly appreciated! As a full disclosure, my fiancée is aware of my record so the US govt telling her this will not come as a surprise.
  14. Hi everyone. We're nearing the completion of our I-129f and woukd like to know if we need to write our names at the back of our passport photos. If we do, should we write in pencil our whole names?
  15. Please, provide any tips that you can think of in regards to the assembly/ preparation of the I-129F petition. The first question, I have thus far, how do I refer to something in the evidence? For example, I want the person reviewing my bank statement to look at a certain page for a transaction that would prove I was overseas.
  16. Should I submit the original Boarding Pass, or a photocopy of it? I am reluctant to send the original in case they loose it.
  17. Quick question please on the I-129f: if my address has always been the same since I was born can I just put N/A on Part 2, 12.a.?
  18. I haven't seen a October 2016 filers thread so here it goes!!! We just sent our I-129f package today via USPS priority, it should reach the Dallas lockbox on Wed 10/05/2016. We are keeping our fingers crossed for no RFE's! Good luck everyone
  19. We're trying to complete our I-129f and got confused with Part 8 (Additional Information). If we don't want to utilize this page should we just leave the part blank where my fiancé's name is requested?
  20. We need your thoughts in using a separate sheet in lieu of part 8 (additional information). We figured we'd explain how we met and the space provided in part 8 of the I-129f isn't enough. Is there any template we need to follow?
  21. I am a U.S. citizen who filed an I-129F in early October. At the time, I was living in Hong Kong and my fiancé (a British citizen) was living in the Philippines. Since filing the I-129F, I’ve moved from Hong Kong to Manila to live with my fiancé while we wait for his K1 visa to be approved. The mailing address I listed on the I-129F hasn’t changed, but obviously my current physical address has. Is this something I need to notify USCIS about? Also, will it help our case if USCIS knows we’re now living together? Appreciate any advice on this, thanks!
  22. 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!
  23. So, I'm currently building my petitioners packet. My fiance and I have technically only known each other for 6 months, but I know more than i've known anything before, that this woman is the woman I want to be with for the rest of my life. We have TONS of screen shots of our phonecalls, facetimes, textx, snapchats, whatsapp conversations. I don't really understand what's the most beneficial for me to include. Like, entire conversations or just noting the fact that we spoke on such-n-such date. Do the officers want to see content or just proof of ongoing communication. I am worried if I screenshot entire conversations to show context that I will not be able to show how frequent our conversations are, but I also don't want to just send random half convos that have no context and could be confusing. Does anyone have any sound advice on this subject?
  24. Hi guys, I would like you to help me with this because it’s the last thing I need to finish filling I-129f form. The problem is I don’t remember the exact dates of my first job in the last five years and I don’t remember the exact dates of my last two address, I know the last five years I’be lived in two different address but not the exact dates. Any advice for this please?
  25. Just sharing a silly photo of my man and I! We are in the process of putting together our I-129f and it's making me miss him going through memory lane😍
