Do I need to submit Form I-130A with my I-130 petition?



Supplemental Information for Spouse Beneficiary (Form I-130A) and Petition for Alien Relative (Form I-130) must be submitted together to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which means that a person who files marriage-based I-130 petition (petitioner) should also submit Form I-130A on behalf of a spouse.

It is a beneficiary (spouse) who should prepare Form I-130A. If he/she is present in the USA, his/her signature is required. If a beneficiary is abroad, he/she must fill in this form, but signature is not required.

Only marriage-based process of getting a green card needs a supporting Form I-130A. There is no need to attach it to Form I-130 for other types of family relationships (parents, kids, brothers/sisters).

I wanted to get political asylum in the United States, but I realized that it was not so easy. I was ready for the fact that I would have to collect a whole bunch of documents and answer many questions, but this did not stop me. The only obstacle for me was a complete lack of understanding where to start. I accidentally found Usa-immigrations.com on the Internet. All the information you need is there. I easily found and downloaded the form I needed, and also learned the entire list of required documents.

A very useful site for those who want to leave for America and do not know what documents need to be collected and how to arrange everything correctly. I had to face such a problem and I was able to solve it thanks to the site Usa-immigrations.com. All the information gathered here is not only useful, but also very necessary. In addition, the site staff constantly update it, so it is absolutely reliable.

It is not an easy task to issue documents to travel to the USA. Even if you know their entire list, that's not all. To obtain a visa, you must fill out the forms and if even a minor mistake is made, they will be returned to you. At Usa-immigrations.com there is more than a list of documents and forms that can be easily downloaded. Each form is accompanied by detailed instructions on how to fill it out correctly. It is very convenient. I liked the site very much, it is simple and easy to use.

I have been living in America with my family for a long time and am a citizen of this country. I decided to lure my mother to her. I began to find out what documents are needed for this. One friend advised the site Usa-immigrations.com, said that it had all the necessary information. Indeed, here I found out what documents are required. I needed to complete a Form I-130. I also found it on this site and downloaded it. Thanks to the instructions for filling it out, I was able to quickly complete everything and send the documents for consideration.
