Form I-130A, Supplemental Information for Spouse Beneficiary

Form G-325A has been replaced by Form I-130A. Starting with the 02/27/17 edition of Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, the petitioner who is filing on behalf of a spouse must also submit Form I-130A, Supplemental Information for Spouse Beneficiary.

The petitioner submits Form I-130A along with the Form I-130. However, the I-130A is for the beneficiary information only. In other words, the U.S. citizen or permanent resident petition does not need to fill out Form I-130A with his or her own information.

If you are petitioning a child, parent, or sibling, you do not need to submit Form I-130A.
