Recommended Posts

Im a citizen in the USA and currently petitioning my parents from the philippines. I submitted of of their I-130 and after a month my Mother has been approved but my Father has a request to submit an RFE/bonafide father and child relationship since i was born out of wedlock. i submitted my birth certificate with my father's name written on it and my baptismal as well. my parents are still together write now but my problem is all of the required documents requested by USCIS are hard to provide, this include the insurances, school receipts and some that is impossible to produce in our country. Is there anybody in the same boat as me? pls help.. Thank you.

I thought they just gave examples of the documents needed. Focus on what is available.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Did your parents marry? If they did, google "legitimation in the Philippines".

Worst case is DNA testing if you cannot satisfy the RFE.

You can also submit pictures of you together with your dad from the time you were born until present. Include special occasions like birthdays, Christmas, and graduations.

I had the same case with you before.

Just go to a lawyer and request for an affidavit of two disinterested person attesting that you a have a parent-child relationship ( these 2 person could be a neighbor,old family friend ,not related to you)

Let them sign the affidavit.

They will served as a witness like your parents sending you to school etc

Send your school records (form 137, transcript records) where your father's name appear as your parent/guardian

Addl documents baptismal certificate.

Goodluck
