First reaction: Troll

2nd reaction: maybe just dim...

3rd reaction: When USCIS say something, they usually mean it...

4th reaction: Some of their instructions can be confusing; this one isn't!

If it says black then complete it in black but rule of thumb is to sign it in blue. Why? Because when you photocopy a document that has been executed if the signature is black you can't always tell the original from the copy. If you sign in blue, you will always know which is the original.

Yes, blue is fine...so is red or green. They really don't mean half of what they say- like those darn adit pictures...they don't really have to be the exact size and all... just do the paperwork as YOU feel you shoul, and they'll be fine with it, afterall- it is a free country.

*IP sighs....because without idiots, the world would indeed be a boring place*

First reaction: A familiar name user with 83 posts is not a troll.

2nd: Been around long enough to know that the form instructions are not always correct.

3rd: Well... are you *sure* you want to stand behind that one?! lol

4th: Well, yeah, it does seem pretty clear. Use the damn black ink, but do as Rete says and use the common lawyers' convention of signing in blue ballpoint so that it is more clear that the signature is original.

Okay.

Next question: ACRO fasteners vs paperclips?

If you were unable to ask any questions and had to rely on no one but yourself, based on the information you have, how would you respond?

I might use blue even if black is specified, but never red or green.
Anything other than black or (dark) blue will not photocopy or (more
importantly) scan correctly because they come out a lighter shade of grey
when scanned.

I could well imagine your I-XXX form kicking out because the print can't be
read and then a human looks at it sees you've filled in out in pink and
decides to make your life a little difficult.

lol.. and yes, I missed out a smiley before, on accident.

You must've meant ACCO fasteners

I'm a paperclip gal all the way. If it's good enough for Greece, it's good enough for me (they actually have the neatest paperclips there!)

Poor ramNagab.. good thing s/he took it all so well!

Black & Blue ink pens cost the same amount "50c". Guess what best give them what they ask for.
Good Luck.
