Form G-325A is a USCIS form that collects biographical information of the applicant. It is a supplemental form that is only required in special cases. Depending on the immigration benefit you are applying for and the circumstances of your case, the USCIS will let you know if you need to fill one out.

The information collected on Form G-325A allows the USCIS to check the applicant’s or petitioner’s background. The form is fairly simple to complete.

If parts of the form ask for information you don’t know or can’t remember, you have a couple options. The legal website NOLO suggests that if you can’t remember an exact date, enter what you can remember such as the year. Or, you can write “unknown.” However, you should limit the number of times you do this or the USCIS may return your application.

The form asks for the following information:

  • Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Citizenship/ Nationality
  • Other names used
  • City and Country of Birth
  • U.S. Social Security Number (if any)
  • Biographical information of your parents
  • Biographical information of husbands or wives
  • Addresses for the last 5 years
  • Employment for the last 5 years
  • Last occupation abroad
