Interview and CFO document questions

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am preparing to send the documents my Fiance will need for the Embassy interview and CFO seminar. I filed an extension to file for taxes this year. I just recently filed the return electronically so it is not available by transcript. Can I print my 1040 from TurboTax and use it? Will it be a problem that It is not signed as I filed electronically? Do I need to include proof of the extension to file?

Reading the notes for the CFO seminar, I am sending a copy of my passport bio page and divorce decree. Do they really need my birth certificate for the CFO seminar?

Thank you for your assistance.

If the document is listed as a required document for CFO, YOU BETTER SEND IT TO HER. (not yelling just emphasizing for effect). CFO is the worst of all the government agency that are gate keepers that she will pass through. You don't want to PO these people.

Go to their website and make sure she has every SINGLE document.

Thanks Greenbaum - I have read some of the CFO reviews and I'm not taking any chances so she's getting a copy of my Birth Certificate. My income is over 4 times the requirement so I am not concerned with that. Only concerned about the copy of the 1040 form as it's not a transcript and only a copy of the electronic filing.

A bit of advise. When sending any document that contains your SSN please, please, please black marker it out so it can't be read!!!

A copy of your 1040 form is fine. Just send the 2 pages of the form. She won't need the entire document with all your schedules and such.

There is a limit to how much blood they can extract from you. :rofl:

Good luck.

Why black out the social security number? It would only be seen by the Embassy official. And that number must be provided elsewhere in the fiance visa/I-134 materials? If it is not on the tax return and/or W2, wouldn't it raise questions about authenticity?


Thank for for updating your timeline. (My Assistant, then edit/add my timeline.)

Yes, send/email a copy of your 1040 to your fiancee.

For CFO (you do not need to give CFO a copy of your ITR if you have a divorce decree - they will want this instead:

Required documents & "OTHER DOCUMENTS" they ask for at CFO: originals & copies of; CENOMAR (CEMAR and marriage certificate if married), certified birth certificate. Passport and copies of bio page of passport, visa page from passport, pictures together. From USC (copies of) - bio page of passport, birth certificate, divorce decree (if been married before) are the most common requests. The "other documents" clause can be ANYTHING with those nit-wits at CFO.

Why black out the social security number? It would only be seen by the Embassy official. And that number must be provided elsewhere in the fiance visa/I-134 materials? If it is not on the tax return and/or W2, wouldn't it raise questions about authenticity?

No need to black it out if you are only giving a copy to the embassy, Greenbaum was referring to CFO if you gave them a copy.

You do not need to black out for USEM inteview as like you said, they have access to it. My concern is some yahoo at CFO getting a hold of it and causing problems for your fiancee and you. If it gets out your fiancee could be facing years of work to clear his name all because you didn't black out the SSN. People who worked at CFO in the past, and there has been more than one, have hinted or even asked for additional bribe to pass the person during their interview. If they will be as bolden as that, why would they not steal a SSN.

I'm not saying all are crooks at CFO, but there has been in the past some who have exhibitive tenancies that a crook would exhibit.
