View Full Version : G325A form

10-30-2007, 02:47 PM
My son is applying for my Green Card.I have filled up I-130,I-484,I-765 forms

Who has to fill up G-325A form. Also in the last line do I( have to state as Adjustment of Status to Green card or anything else. I am in US now on B2 visa. I came in during first week of July. Is it the right time to apply for adjustment of status in US

You BOTH have to fill out a g-325a, for the I-130. In them put the reason as "I-130 petition"

And YOU have to fill out another g-325a, for the I-485. In that one put the reason as "Adjusting of Status / Permanent Residency"

The time looks right for AOS, if this was in fact NOT PLANNED.

Thanks. That's a prompt reply :-)
The Green card option was not planned when I landed here. All the same I wanted to be sure about the rules. Thanks again

Permanent Residency IS the Green Card.

Another clarification needed from you.

My Son has been in USA for the past 14 years. In his G 325 A form to sponsor me for I-130, does he have to fill in his stay details outside the USA for the past one year,though he stayed in India only before 1994 (Question under line 7 of the G325A form) Also does he have to give details of his employment outside India eventhough it was for 3/4 months before he came to USA for his MS in 1994

Every person filling out a G-325a has to include ALL employment and ALL information.

Dear Praetorian XI

I am a little confused. The instruction of I 130 specifies that only for sponsoring Husband or wife , both have to fill up G325A form.

For sponsoring Father or mother you need to submit only Birth certificate of the sponsor and marriage certificate of his parents. It doesnot say anything about G325A form for son and father.

IN I 485 form it says about the G 325A of the applicant , that is father and here also there is no mention of the same for son.

Can you please clarify which is correct

11-05-2007, 06:25 PM
You are correct. G-325a is only needed for the I-485. And the "answers" is that the petition is regarding "Adjusting for permanent residency".

Thanks a lot for your immediate response.

Dear Praetorian XI

I had applied for I 130, I 485 and I765.
I have Receipts for all these forms. The Receipt number starts with MSC. But if I try to check the status it says that the receipt number is wrong. The number should start with WAC , EAC etc.

What does MSC mean?

Do not worry, it should take a few weeks before you can access to your case information online (because of USCIS delays).

MSC = Missouri Service Center, which is now known as NBC (National Benefits Center) and is in charge of pre-processing all AOS cases, and issuing EADs and APs.

Put your zip code in that and it will tell you where your finger prints will be taken (based on the closest ASC to you).

In the G325A The address of the last five years has only 5 lines. but i have more than 7 addresses for the last five years. in such cases how do we fill the extra ones.

11-28-2007, 06:09 PM
Add aditional pages of paper, indicating the question and answers, staple it to the form.

Dear Praetorian XI,

On immihelp site, I have been advised that one should put his name in the USPS mail box. I am staying with my son and his name is put in the mail box. How do I add my name to it so that I dont miss any letters from USCIS about my Green Card. Is there any online site of USPS through which I can add my name in the mailbox?

11-30-2007, 09:09 PM
Walk or drive to your local USPS office. Inform the manager at the post office. However, this is not usually required unless your mails is getting lost.

USPS delivers letters by address and does not confirm names anyway. If the address is correct they will deliver.

The issue is when you want to forward your letters, that's attached to address as well as name.

Take care.

My son applied for I-130,I 485 and I 765 on 5th Nov 2007 under family petition for me (his father)

we got notice of receipt for all 3 dated 14th Nov 2007 on 20th Nov 2007.

I havent received Finger Printing Notice yet. I have seen most of the cases the notice for Finger printing was received between 15 to 20 days from date of submission. Is the delay in my case normal? Do I have to contact the USCIS to know about the same?

12-03-2007, 11:50 PM
The delay is normal, you should receive fingerprint notice 1-2 months after submitting the documents.
