IR1/CR1 - I-130 HELP

10 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

Hi all,

Really need some help here please. I have been directed to several sites, however I am getting conflicting information and I am confused and I don't want to make any mistakes. I am hoping that some people who have recently gone through the process can provide some assistance please. My case is now at NVC for the I-130, IR-1/CR-1. Here is what I need help with please:

1. Of all the documents for NVC- AOS, IV packet etc which documents can be certified copies and which must be originals? (marriage certificate, police certificate, military, birth certificate, etc. etc. etc.)

2. For documents that can be certified copies, what must the certified copies entail? If the copies are notarized and stated that they are true copies of the original with notarial signature is this sufficient? Must certified copies have apostitles?

3. Of our marriage documents, we had everything translated, the birth certificate used, the passports, the marriage certificate, the police record etc, all translated by a certified translator with a copy of the original and all with apostitles. If they ask for originals, do we want to send these originals or the original marriage certificate with out the translation and without the apositles?

Also, I need clarification on exacly how everything is sent in. I understand I have to wait for our case # from NVC and also the invoice number so that we can use the system through NVC to make the payments. Do you make payment for everything all at once at NVC and then send in all the papers together (bar codes showing proof, choice of agent, and all the packages for AOS and IV packet?

I know I am asking for a lot of information, I just don't want to delay the process by doing anything wrong. I have done my research, however I am just not sure which research is current and which is out of date. So anyone that recently went through NVC who can provide insight and help walk me through this process, it woud be greatly appreciated. Any suggestions your have any do's and don't, please include anything you think would be helpful for me to know. Also, anyone petitioning for their spouse from Turkey out there, can you tell me please approximately how long from when your case was assigned at NVC to when you were given your interview date and then how long until your interview please?

Thanks all VJ members for your help and I do apologize if I am requesting information that has been posted on here multiple times before.

Take care everyone!

Thanks for the clarification, I am in the same stage of the process. I am surprised that you have to submit originals of the marriage and birth certificates.

yes, one of my vj friends melodody and kemal. She is married to a turkish man. This is her profile. She might able to help you. http://www.visajourney.com/forums/user/104190-melody-and-kemal/. Melody's husband went to the interview without having the red book. They didn't give him the visa ,since he was missing the Red book. She had to send it to him.(she had it in the united states. after they received the book Then embassy put him in administrative process.

Be aware ladies this can happened to your husbands. Therefore, you should get prepared. http://turkey.usembassy.gov/immigrant_admin_processing.html
