I have a question regarding I-130

Asked over 1 year ago - Claremore, OK

In the Form I-130, there is a question number 20 in section C which states that "if filing for husband/wife, give last address where you lived together". I am a US citizen and filing for my husband who resides in Canada. We are married for 1 year. we never got the chance to stay together for longer time because of my study and the process of my citizenship this year in USA and my husband's job in Canada. we stayed together sevaral times for several periods. But even though we stayed the shortest period last time in Canada(for 5days), do I need to put that as a answer of the question I stated above? does the time matter?

    Answered . As Mr. Shusterman points out ... put the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

    If it was only 5 days ... that is all you can put down.
